Focus - Reto #2 Challenge Yourself

Hoy les traigo esta layout que hice para el nuevo reto de Challenge Yourself. El desafío consiste en hacer una layout con una foto de nosotras indicando nuestra One Little World para este año. Si no sabes qué es esto del OLW, te cuento que es un proyecto creado por Ali Edwards que nos invita a elegir una palabra con la cual regirnos durante el año, teniendola en mente e intentando llevar adelante la motivación que nos llevó a elegirla. 
Hi there! Today we have a new reveal of the brand new DT at Challenge Yourself. This time the challenge consist in creating a layout using a pic of you and reveal your One Little Word for this year 2014. If you are not familiar with OLW, i can tell you it's a project created by Ali Edwards which invite us to pick a word that will guide us trhough the year and will help us carry out the motivation that made us to pick this word. 
 
Les muestro mi interpretación:
Here is my take:


En mi caso elegí la palabra "focus" o enfocarse. Siento que siempre estoy haciendo mil cosas y no logro terminar bien nada, a veces ni siquiera empiezo... tengo tantas ideas, proyectos y ganas de hacer cosas que mis planes se desvanecen y termino haciendo nada. Por eso, este año quiero enfocarme, establecer metas y prioridades y trabajar en ellas para lograrlas, ya sea mentas materiales o espirituales. estoy muy motivada con mi OLW :)
In my case I chose word "focus". I feel that all the time I'm doing too many thing and I cant get to finish anything, sometimes I don't even get to start... I have so many ideas and projects that my plans fade away and I end up doing nothing. For this reason, this year I want to focus, I want to set the goals and work hard so as to get them, whether they are material or spiritual goals. I'm so motivated with my OLW :)





Usé cardstock blanco de base, el cual pinté con un poco de acuarela y timbré un poco con ese sello de triángulos de Amy Tangerine. Los papeles decorados son de la colección Random de Crate. Esta vez también probé algo nuevo y en los bordes del papel por fin usé la herramienta de distress que tenia hace siglos. Me gustó mucho el efecto, la seguiré usando en el futuro ❤   Finalmente salpiqué algunas gotitas de pintura y cosí alrededor de la página para terminar.
I used white cardstock, which I painted with grey watercolors and stamped with this triangle stam for Amy Tangerine. All patterned papers are from Crate's Random collection. I also tried something new and used this distressing tool I've hade since forever on the edges of the paper. I loved the result, so I guess I'm so using this tool again Finally I add some paint splatters and used the sewing machine to finish it up.

El plazo para presentar sus proyecto vence el 5 de febrero. Entre todas las participantes elegiremos 3 destacadas y además una afortunada ganadora se llevará un pequeño premio cortesía de Challenge Yourself
