Seeking out the Positive

The Alpha Challenge at The Craft Barn is a year long creative challenge,
using a letter from the alphabet every two weeks as inspiration.

The next letter (as it is not being done in alphabetical order) is
& we must include the definition of our chosen word,
together with a pearl.

I have chosen the word

Choosing a word from the Z section of the dictionary is always tough,
even more so when you are trying to follow a theme.

My theme for the year is Resilience.
We should try to focus on the positive,
look for the positive side in each situation &
seek out the positive every day.

The two images are from The Graphics Fairy.

As for the additional challenge,
well I gave her pearl buttons on her cuffs.

This ATC will have a place in my Art Journal for Week 32.
