Setting the record straight !


Industria



Industria
I was recently lucky enough to be Published In Somerset Studio Magazine. It was a joint article between Julie VanOosten and myself about how we came up with the Industria techinque.
It was such a huge thrill for the article to be a feature in the workshop section. When I opened my copy it had only my name on it and not Julie's. I just wanted everyone to know that it was both Julie and I, not me alone who wrote the article.
It was a very bitter sweet moment for me,I would hate for anyone to think oh Jen Crossley is so full of herself,I would rather give up all art than that.
I would never want to take credit for this alone so that's why I'm setting the record straight.
Julie I do apologise for this, I know it wasn't my mistake for not including your name, but I want you to know and everyone else it was OUR techinque.
Above are the very first pieces Julie and I did, and it was the start of a Industria revolution !!
take care
Jen
PS Julie I know you will think I didnt have to do this post but credit where credit is due.
You are a special lady.

Hi Jen,

Thanks for all your comments to me lately. Here I am finally to marvel at your posts and be impressed by your Industria pieces. I totally understand why you wrote that post, and anyone who is a friend of yours is a lucky girl.

Have fun teaching all over. You are pretty darn busy yourself. Bravo!!!!!!

And a wonderful technique it is too - It must be as other people have got on the band wagon ;-)

Remember that old saying..

Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery...

Jen,
You are truly a wonderful lady! Who wouldn't want you as a friend. We all know how talented both you and Julie are, and the artilcle was WON-DER-FUL! I drove into town just to get the magazine today after reading Tim's blog! I had forgotten all about it coming out!
Congrats to both of you!!!!
Love your work, your techniques, and your undying ability to share!

Two Great Artists!

I'm sure that anyone who knows you Jen, knows that you and Julie are great friends and work together and would never do anything to hurt her. The article was wonderful, its just a shame they used their creative editing in the wrong place.

Ro Bruhn said...

Great work as usual Jen. Anyone who knows you would realize you're not full of yourself, just a fun caring person.

You're the best Sis~! We are all fortunate to have you in our lives.
Love the technique and the FOUR page publication in SOMERSET STUDIO!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Jen - I'm with everyone else - there is no way anyone would think you would try and take credit where it wasn't due. It was an amazing article and it is a great technique! Well done to both you and Julie. PS Wish I could take your classes in Brisbane (makes me realize just how wide Australia is!) but I am booking that seat next to you on a certain Sunday in May!!

I LOVE this! I just stopped by your blog and saw these and thought to myself "I've seen these before" They were featured in my latest Somerset purchase. They are such wonderful magazines because they showcase talent such as yours!

I love these, Jen! The gritty industrial look is great with the newspaper scraps.
Hi from Lisa Cook, also - I had fun at her soldering workshop in Wisconsin a few weeks ago. Soldering! How frustrating!!

Lisa Cook said...

Well, I have to stop in and say Hello as well! CONGRATS on your article. I don't subscribe anymore, but I did look through it at the store and saw it all. It is great to see OZ artists represented!
And Jean is so silly about soldering! She did a marvelous job and if anyone doesn't believe me, come on over and visit my blog to see the picture proof! : )

Love that picture of the Industria Revolution. That was the worst thing that happened. Look at where the earth's enviroment as we know it today Very Very bad. Should have never invented alot of the things we have today.Elaine Cooke

A truly selfless blog post Jen. You might want to let the publishers know of their mistake and get them to put in a correction in the next mag. Thanks for the lovely comments on my blog.

CheerS!
