Stuffed magazine published by Stampington and Co., pieces on front cover by Susan Mitchel (Sweet Pea of It's a Whimsical Life)
I just bought an issue of the new Stuffed magazine published by Stampington & Co. The publisher also publishes a variety of beautiful magazines such as Somerset Studio, Artful Blogging, Art Doll Quarterly, and Somerset Life. Stuffed, like the other Stampington & Co. publications, is full of yummy eye-candy and lots of inspiration.
Stuffed includes articles by several talented artists including Pamela Overmeier of Kingfisher Farm, Q. D. Patooties, and Susan Mitchel, Sweet Pea of It's a Whimsical Life. In the articles, artists talk about their work and share their techniques. Patterns are interspersed throughout the magazine. There is also a fascinating article about www.theneedle.org, a group blog maintained by softie artists.
I first found the magazine mentioned on Sweet Pea's blog, It's a Whimsical Life. In her January 17 post, she talks a little about the magazine. Two of her pieces grace the cover of the magazine. She has a shop on Etsy where she sells prints of her illustrations (as she is also a talented freelance children's book illustrator) and her softies. Sweet Pea is a very talented artist who makes endearing children's book illustrations and who also makes adorable, huggable softies. Please check out her charming blog, too.
