Global Talent Search
Ok. Just when I realized I shouldn't take on another project, I took on another project. And a non-paying project to boot. Even worse, I had to submit a fee to be a part of this! Not exactly in line with my goal to earn more than I spend. I ignored all this logic and jumped in feet first. Don't tell my husband!
Something about the opportunity to share my design skills in a new realm was appealing. I received a text from a friend, encouraging me to check out the competition. In all actuality the sponsors of this competition are not really part of my field of expertise. Illustrators, fabric designers, graphic artists, etc. but I figured, what the hell. Go for it. I love color. I love art and the intertwining of materials and textures. It's all about marketing for me at this point. I can't sell my work if people don't know about it and don't know who I am. So here I go. The first assignment is to design a cover for a journal. There is a theme to follow and size guidelines to work with but other than that I can take my design wherever I desire. At this point I am drawn in two directions but am leaning towards a craft that I have always held dear to my heart. The way of the paper cut-out. Since I was a little girl I have always loved to make cards using colored paper to create vibrant images of nature with animals, flowers, people, or whatever inspired me that day. I'll keep y'all posted on how this all goes.....
