Create with abandon : My current motto.:-)


I am back with another project and I am so glad I finally did something!I have been busy with work and have been postponing all my crafty work for almost a month now and was itching to do something.

I don't know what to call this.Maybe a plaque?A lot of people have been working on identifying a defining word for this year.A word that will be the underlying inspirational theme for 2013.I have been thinking real hard and I came up with one finally.Mine is Endeavour.I am one of those people who always hesitates before getting into anything.Extra cautious and non committal,that's me!This year though,I do not want to play it safe.I want to play,take risks and try everything,hence the word.I wanted to to make something to remind me of that.Unfortunately I was also creating this for a challenge and I had the restriction of a 6 by 6 project,so I decided to use the word CREATE.Cliche much,eh?I will probably make a bigger something for my actual word, but for right now this also mirrors how I want to be this year.

Anyway,without any more rambling,here is my plaque or affirmation sign or whatever you want to call it.

It was pretty simple to make.The base is thick white cardstock.The pattern paper is punched.The letters are coloured with blush pink acrylic paint and then I used pink glitter glue on them.The rest is diecuts,laces,flowers etc.I tried to create some texture with a stencil and gesso.Not sure if I like that too much,to be honest.There's some stamping too but its hardly visible.

Hope you like this project!

Submitting this for Crafters Corner Challenge No. 4 which is anything but a layout or card.My project is neither of those,so I hope it qualifies for entry.

Supplies :
Paper : DCWV botanicals stack from Crafters Corner
Die Cuts : Tigerlily Collection from Lulupu (Either from the Lakehouse or the Tigerlily collection)
Flowers : I am roses,I think.:-)
Chipboard Alphas : Itsy Bitsy
