3rd Place in Card Maker of the Year 2017!

2017年カードメイキングコンテスト3位入賞

3rd place

I wrote that I had entered the Card Maker of the Year 2017 in a previous post. Amazingly, I got 3rd place! I actually knew about this a couple of weeks ago but was asked not to publicise it until the results had been announced in this month’s edition of the magazine.

I dreamed about how I would feel if I was chosen but never really thought It would happen. Perhaps because I have little experience of card making, my work was a bit different to the other entries! I really want to thank the judges for selecting me,

I regret not have taken better pictures or some videos of my entries as they are not returned after the competition but these are three cards I made.

Since I applied for this contest, I noticed that there was another big competition next month and I am working on that at the moment. The contest gives me the goal to focus on which is good for me.

Now I ‘m hoping to make many various types of papercraft, learn new techniques and improve my skills. It’s also so much fun!

以前のポストで Card maker of the year 2017に応募した事は書きましたが、何と3位に入賞しました!実は連絡は少し前に頂いていたのですが雑誌が発売されたので公に発表します。

選ばれたたら嬉しいだろうな〜なんて夢は見てもまさか本当に入賞出来るなんて全く思っていませんでした。多分カードメイキングの経験が浅いだけにこうするべきっていうものがわかっていない私の作品は逆に新鮮に映ったのかもしれません。選んでくださった審査員の皆様、本当にありがとうございます。

作品は戻らないので、こんな事ならもっと真剣に写真やビデオを撮っておけば良かったと後悔。

こちらのコンテストに応募してから来月にもう一つ大きなコンテストがあることに気がついて現在作品を作っています。(まさか入賞するとは思っていなかったのもありますが)コンテストは私に目標を与えてくれるのでこれからも挑戦していきたいと思っています。

今はひたすら色んなタイプのたくさんの作品を作ってもっともっとテクニックや知識を学んでいきたいと思います。何より楽しいのが一番かな。

  1. These really are lovely! Belated congratulations. I can’t beleive you hadn’t been making cards very long then. I’m sure the originality of your cards and the professional look they have helped clinch it.
