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."
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.
