2014 Word of the Year

You may have heard some buzz about OLW (One Little Word) or Word of Year already.  Instead of making resolutions that I know I won’t keep I decided to try OLW this year.  Over at S.W.A.T. our first challenge for 2014 is about resolutions or your word of the year…my word is CHOICES.  I decided to do a page in my art journal about what my word means to me.
The letters are Pink Paislee wood alphas stamped with the VLVS! writing background stamp embossed with high gloss embossing powder and painted with Distress paint.  I also used the background stamp directly on the page.  Other VLVS! used:  line of chevrons, pointed pen tip and mason jar.  From UmWow Studio I used the checkerboard mask,  flair from the sidewalk chalk set, leaf confetti and speech bubble from everyday speech bubbles.  Other items:  Prima flowers and junkyard findings, May Arts ribbons and twine, American Crafts brad, Tim Holtz alphas, washi from Gauche Alchemy ( a gift from a super crafty friend!), Tattered Angels mists, vintage button, cheese cloth and floral bead.

I love the flair for the ‘o’ in my word!!  The BIG choice to ‘be happy’!!

Now all that is left is to decide it I will actually journal on my art journal page…you never know with me!  If I happened to have an amazing thought I might just write it down!
You have until the end of the month to link up your project here for a chance to win a great prize.  Oh, and maybe get a feature on our Facebook page…fun right?!!


  1. It's a gorgeous project! Great word too!

  2. Love your word and what you created!

  3. What a great word for 2014. Mine is truth...
