Delving into submissions …

It’s something I thought I would never get around to doing but I went and did it recently – I submitted for design teams. Oh, not a lot; just a few. I checked out and a couple of companies caught my eye, one of them being Heartfelt Creations. They were looking for designers who dabble in vintage, shabby chic, clean and simple, elegant, and mixed styles, to create cards, layouts, and altered art projects and I thought – that’s right up my alley – well, not the clean-and-simple!

The company has some very intriguing stamps and dies and I’m really hoping for the opportunity to play with them (check them out). I’m looking forward to the challenge of creating, and creating with a deadline – I’ve always felt I work better under pressure!

I submitted these three projects for the audition: a few Fall/Halloween tags, my latest cd mini book and a watercolor-style stamped card. Ranger product  is featured on all of these projects and I felt they best fit the bill for vintage, shabby chic and altered. They liked them! I’m in the running (a semi-finalist)!

I’m waiting for my package to arrive with Heartfelt Creations’ product to create my final projects for judging and we’ll see what happens next. I’m to send the final projects in by mid April so will know more after that. Wish me luck!
