~ Persevere ~

Today I am posting a LO following January's challenge at Zeus and Zoe...The first of many I hope! The challenge posted by DT member Romy is to create a project using one's special word for 2013...

As I have posted before I am hoping to persevere this year with some aspects of  my scrapping! Following  different challenges is one of them.

Trying many different mediums and styles is another...and that I did with this LO...and I enjoyed it and am happy with the results! I went a little Gesso and Mist crazy on this LO,  I used canvas and what seems to be a trend at the moment...burlap...!

I have used the back of a Prima Mist-A-Ble canvas. Also used several Papers from the Tea-Thyme Collection, although one can't see them any more after all the gesso and inking lol!

Some Prima Vine flowers on top of a Lace sticker from Basic Grey. And a Typo Bulb from Junkjard findings.

The 2 Crafty Scrolls held up to some heavy inking, gesso and UTEE treatment making them extra grungy looking! I added some half pearls, for a little feminine touch....!

The 2 Crafty Border was done with Stampendous Aged Green Embossing Enamel...and I followed Gabrielle Pollacco's tutorial to make a paper ruffles border as well....think I need some more practice on that!

I used a Ledger template from The Crafters Workshop and Ranger Gesso to add some texture to the LO and once dry sprayed on various Lindys Stamp Gang Mists.

Love the toadstool from Ingvild's Shabby Chic collection, with some snippets of the 2 Crafty border.

Luscious golden specks in the green  Embossing Enamel.

Loved the effect of a little gesso masking on my photo... 

That then is my inky mixed medium version of my 2013 word...Persevere...hope to see some more of my scrapping friends do projects of their "word"...

The will to persevere
 is often the difference
 between failure and success.
