Word for 2017

It is that time of year to pick a word for the year. Something to motivate you. Something you strive for.

I chose the word FAITH - as in faith in myself and my abilities. Faith in whatever path I choose. I hope to hush the voices in my head and the doubts that creep up when I try to work.

I created a mixed media piece for my word. I have book paper, burlap paper, kraft paper, and pattern paper. I have stencils and mists.  To be honest - this is the fifth attempt at this project. My faith left me for a while but I finally was able to clear my heart and mind and create! I am so happy with this!

I used a variety of Canvas Corp Brand products for this! I have 7 Gypies Wanderlust Pattern Paper, 7 Gypsies Global Paper Tape, and Tattered Angels Metallics Mists.



I used this  Mary Nasser stencil from StencilGirl.

This reminds me to have faith in myself  no mater what route or path I take.

Thank you for stopping by!
