My Word for 2018: Focus

The aftermath.
 After long hiatus from painting, it feels good to paint in my art journal again and make a creative mess.

Used silver thread to hang the stars and Liquid Chrome pen to outline each star.

First time using DecoArt's Neon Lights fluorescent paint.  These are beautiful colors to work with.

Do you have a word for 2018?

Joining in with Paint Party Friday and Mixed media Monthly                                 



  1. Good word and one I have used before. My word this year is "trust". Love your journal spread with the dangling stars holding your word! Vibrant and uplifting. Happy New Year and happy PPF!

  2. Yes I do and it's hope. Focus was actually my first word that I chose when I began doing WOTY and I still have it hanging in my art room!

  3. Good luck with your word of the year, fab journal page. I have chosen the word nurture this year.

  4. Good word for the year. I really love the background colors you have for the page.

  5. i do have a word for 2018.. .i have lots of the picked out but the main one i am focusing on is mindfulness.... i am so glad you have dug out your paints again and are sharing with us at Mixed Media Monthly challenge.... it is so important to take the time and be creative.... i too am on the other side of 50 and am loving it!!
