"Looking Forward" and my "2013 Word of the Year!"

Happy New Years.. again my friends! May your year be filled with fun times and happiness!!

My very first project this year is my word for 2013.. and it is NO!! 
Yes, that is right.. NO!  I really have decided that it is time I learn to say NO! 
NO to procrastinating; NO to doing things for others that I really don't want to do (not in a mean way of course..!);
NO to the negatives in my life; and to remember that NO is an Answer!!

I created this art journal page for me to reflect on thought the year and make sure I stick to it...

It also works well with the challenge at  A Year in the Life of an Art Journal , Looking Forward! and using a grid! I used washi tape under the acrylic paint as grid lines.. hope that works!

This is also the first art journal challenge of many at the Sisterhood of Scrap where we have to art journal our "Word of the Year".

Hope you enjoyed!!




  1. Awesome page Helen!! I love the bits of washi and all that colour.

  3. i LOVE this page.....AND the word. No IS an answer ! and one i tend to learn to use a little more this year and always as well.
    Cheers my friend, and HAPPY NEW YEAR !
