Believe Piggy

I've been doing the One Little Word project this year (by Ali Edwards) and my word is 'Believe.' At the start of the year when I began the album for this project, I also decided that I needed a logo or symbol for my word, so I chose a flying pig. So when I was in the studio yesterday--for the first time in almost two months (thanks to an abundance of grad work and busy life in general)--I decided that I was going to create my own mixed media version of a flying pig. And this is what I created.

Believe Pig Mixed Media

It's difficult to tell, but I added glitter to the tips of my piggy's wings, to give them a little sparkle. He's just a cute little flying pig, created on a background of torn scrapbook papers. He's mostly painted with acrylics, but there is also some stenciling added and some little embellishments here and there. This little guy is going to hang in my studio, to remind me that I need to believe that anything is possible. I think we all need to believe that sometimes. :)
