I think everyone of these gorgeous works of art is a winner. Voting would prove this since it was very close…..but one did edge out in the voting. Many Congrats to
Andi – Hope
Happy New Year my fellow Swirlies. I sincerely hope 2014 brings wonderful surprises and blessings to all of you.
I am honored to kick off the SGC Challenges for 2014. My theme is ONE WORD. Perhaps you have heard of the idea to rather than make New Year Resolutions, pick one word for the year to focus on, mediate on, and reflect upon as you go about your daily life. Well I am trying that this year. In the process of thinking about this I decided that ONE WORD would be my challenge here.
Now I don't expect you to pick a word for your year (unless you want to), but I do want to see a project from you where the focus is one word. One word that means something to you. It could be anything – your family name, a nickname, a catch word you are always saying….whatever.
Your project can be anything layout, art joual page, canvas, altered art, or any other project you can think of. NOTE: I am giving one extra point/vote if you do something other than a layout.
It can include pictures or not, joualing or not, but it must include your ONE WORD. I also hope if you are comfortable doing so that you will share with us the story behind your word.
Challenge is open to all and will remain open through midnight CST January 31, 2014. After that time I will be taking votes for a winner to whom I will then send out a RAK.
My one word for 2014 is BELIEVE. I chose this word because I have been noticing a lot on cynicism creeping into my thought pattes and I want to put a halt to that and get back to believing in possibilities and positive outcomes. To help me in my focus I created a canvas to hang on the wall that will remind me everyday when I look at it what my focus is.
Now what is your word…..get to work and have some fun with it I can not wait to see what you come up with.
And now for gorgeous works of Art created by our entrants.
Barbara – Drift
Andi – Hope
Tracey – Love
Peggy – Positive
Ginger – Fifteen
Patty – Broncos
