The COVER!!! My Cloth Paper Scissors Debut!

So I was going to wait to tell you about the article I have in the May/June issue of Cloth Paper Scissors magazine until I actually had it in my hand.

But I then I had a conversation via texting that changed that. Here it is:



My super amazing friend: Have you seen the new CPS?

Me: Nope. Am I in it? (I was hoping they hadn't cut my article) :)
My friend: You're on the COVER. I'll see if I can send you pics.
Me: NO WAY!!!!!!!
My friend: Yes!!!!!!!

I actually shouted a "YES" then and threw my arms in the air, which really confused my mom, who I was sitting at lunch with. So I got to tell her right away and she of course being my mom, wanted to go straight to the nearest retailer to pick up a copy. It is the MAY issue though so it should hit the newstands soon. I can't wait!!! The article is about taking your art journaling 3d- and creating mixed media art with the actual journal entries. It's the first I've written for CPS and I loved working with them- I'd highly recommend it. :) The video I posted last week on Youtube is actually a companion piece to the article so after you've had a chance to check out the article, head on over to youtube and you'll see what I mean.

Thanks for sharing the moment with me and I would love to have you take a look at my article. Yay!!!
