Somerset Layout

So, as I mentioned previously, here is the art chosen to be in the latest issue of Somerset Apprentice vol 4. It was a 2-pager, but they only picked one. sigh.

I can tell you that it's really quite amazing to see my art work blown up to such a big size. My heart stopped for a minute!
My title choice was Bound By Blood, which is very appropriate for the subject. I mean, it's about a vampire and is splattered in "blood"!! But the Editors changed it. Oh well. Marilyn's album was made out of an old 45 record album, which coincidentally, so was mine! Her's still had the covers intact, but I had to make new ones for mine.

This is Marilyn Healey's spread- they chose two of her pages.

Somerset Apprentice is set up as a how-to magazine, so I followed Marilyn's example and came up with these two beauties:

The little girl will go to my swap partner over at Paper Digital Arts, as she more closely fits this month's theme of "roses." The little boy will stay with me (he's not quite finished, anyway). Both images are from PaperWhimsy.

Next post, I'll show more detail of the "kids" and how I did them. Enjoy!
