Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) September 1, 2008
Nationally recognized mixed-media artist and instructor Lauren Ferguson is the featured artist for the October/November 2008 issue Mary Engelbreit's Home Companion magazine's signature paper arts column called Paper, Scissors, Crop. The issue hits newsstands Sept. 1, 2008. Lauren's projects can also be seen on the magazine's website at http://homecompanionmag.com.
"I was thrilled when the magazine's editor of the Paper, Scissors, Crop contacted me to participate in the column. I knew immediately it was a wonderful opportunity to showcase my unique copper etching technique. When combined with my bookmaking techniques, my copper etched images create visually stunning blank journals. My hope is that my beautiful blank books will inspire others to create their own beautiful art within the pages of my journals."
