My word for 2012 is PERSEVERE; to persist in anything undertaken; maintain a purpose in spite of difficulty, obstacles, or discouragement; continue steadfastly. I made this frame to sit on my scrap desk, to remind me everyday not to give up.
I had a lot of fun making the background for this piece using mist and kosher salt. I love the effect the salt has when it mixes with the ink. I used letter stickers as a mask for my word and peeled them away once my background was dry.
I usually start out the new year with high expectations and a ton of energy and by the end of the year I'm hanging by a thread. I'm determined that this year will be different for me!
