Ok, since I am still a newbie when it comes to Art, I have to say it is still so exciting to see something of mine show up on another site, where it may potentially be seen by someone other than my Mom . I just finished up The Art and Business of Surface Pattern Design Module 2, and decided to send in a submission for the final showcase. And my pattern design was listed among some very talented pattern designers! I feel honored to be in such great company!! You can see the listing here (down about the middle of the page)- http://rachaeltaylordesigns.blogspot.com/2012/08/module-2-final-showcase-part-3.html .
Thanks for letting me brag a little bit Why not take a class yourself, then enter a contest and see if you can get some bragging rights?
