I'll admit, I don't have the patience to build words with modeling paste and stencils. After writing out "dream" and the year, I switched to chipboard to write out "artist." I'm still questioning that title, which is the reason why "ist" is smaller, and the point behind including "dream." I though it was more positive than writing "not."
The stencils I used are TCH (leaves), Tim Holtz (alphas) and Heidi Swapp (bird) and the stamped phrase is from Unity.
