For this sign I used chipboard and patterned paper I had, mounted on cardstock. Added in some ink and distressing, some flowers and ribbon, and "wa-la!" The DH is how I sign any of the pieces I give to others. Kind of my trademark, I suppose.

ABAA - Here's your sign
So, this week for the Awfully Big Art Adventure, the challenge was to create a sign with your word of the year. I chose a phrase rather than a single word. I have been struggling with the concept of what makes an "artist." Where is the line between a craft and art? Between a "photo-taker" and a "photographer"? Perhaps it is only a person's perception. This year I want to cross that line and embrace my artistry. The goal is to be comfortable with myself and what I do, to be confident enough to share it with others, and to have others relate to it. That, I think, is what makes one an "artist."
