When I first began creating my Washi creations, I called my medium “Washi Collage.” I found I was not getting accepted into events I applied for, and of course, no reason is given.
I assumed it was photo quality and set to work learning to create better images.
My acceptance rate increased a bit, but not as much as I wanted. To get a better idea of why, I began visiting the events I did not get into with an eye towards what the successful vendors were doing, who was there, etc. What I found was not what I expected.
