At the beginning of the month I auditioned to be on the Design Team for PSA Essentials. These are fun peel-and-stick stamp sets that have fun interchangeable circle motifs. You can even get custom circles with your name, address, blog name... whatever. Very, very cool! The selections have been announced, and I did not make the cut.
Sure, I'm a little bummed because I would have loved to be a part of the team. But, I think I did a good job. I can't beat myself up saying, "You should have tried harder." Ok, maybe I can... but there will always be people better than me... and in this case, some of those people applied to be on the design team! I can always try again next year, I'm sure I will have improved, and maybe some of those superior crafters will be too busy working on something else to apply!
Here are the projects I submitted for consideration...
A canvas wall hanging with an ombre background and three different stamps. I used dimensional magic on the stamped circle images to add some shine.
Do you think I have a shot next year?
