Don’t dig up in doubt what you planted in faith

My name is Michelle Zytkewicz. I am a chalkboard artist for weddings and events. I’m new to calligraphy and hoped that calligraphy would be another useful tool for my business (and so far has proven to be an amazing tool)! Since starting this class all I want to do is calligraphy!

The quote I chose for this project is by Elisabeth Elliot. Elisabeth was a woman who I never knew personally but greatly admired. She lived through many hardships in her life yet her faith in Jesus Christ remained firm. I had been working on this project, meditating on the meaning and thought process that brought Mrs. Elliot to say these words when I heard the news that Elisabeth Elliot passed away a week ago today. These words have all the more impact now knowing that she lived a life of faith all the way to the end.

In the beginning I tried my final project on just a watercolor washed background but it seemed more appropriate to use a floral wreath instead. So here is my final project.
