January Challenge - Believe

Hi everyone,
It's Cathy and I'm here to share my LO created for this month's challenge... which is to create a project using your chosen word for 2013.  Details on how to enter as well as a look at the fabulous prize pack on offer from this month's sponsor Maja Designs are HERE.

My word for 2013 is "BELIEVE".  I have always struggled with self confidence and seem to be forever doubting myself.  So this year I have decided  to believe in myself,  try to put away the negative thoughts and feelings, and muster up the courage to venture out of my comfort zone and just jump in the deep end.

I usually overthink when I create a LO as I am such a perfectionist, so on this page I decided to let go and play with some mixed media, using gesso, layering various masks, and some splatters and drips with glimmer mist and Viva Decor precious metal over the top of the masking.  I was very happy with the outcome... I might need to let go a bit more often!!

The items I have used  from my Zeus and Zoe vintage kit supplied by Marivic from her Etsy Store are a sheet of patterned paper, vintage buttons, crochet doily, Manor House Creations cream flower, and a some vintage ephemera.

Don't forget you still have until the 27th of this month to apply for the Zeus and Zoe Design Team Call... full details HERE... come on, give it a go, you won't know unless you try!!

Have a fabulous week and thanks so much for stopping by.
