Stampin’ Up has a contest called The Artisan Award. It’s purpose is to recognize the company’s best artists. There is a nice prizethat includes money and SU merchandise but of course the best prize of all is to be recognized as an artist. You send in 10 complete pieces- 5 cards, 3 Scrapbook pages and 2 3D objetcs. It’s very intense and requires hours and hours of work. And the emotional factor is huge! You doubt yourself a thousand times while working on the projects.
So, SU announced the winners, and unfortunaly I am not one. So, a little hard to take, but realistically, what chance do you really stand? I mean the Demonstrators in this company are amazing. Carrie Gaskin, who is a Demo that I have followed for a long time and admire greatly, has not won. If she doesn’t win, I don’t even stand a chance! LOL! She is just one of many who I could say this about. Competition is FIERCE. So, anyway, I am extremly proud of 1. the fact that I completed these projects and got them mailed in on time and 2. the art work I created!
So, now that the contest winners have been announced, I can start showing you my entries!
