The lettering is done using a pencil and the pressure release lettering in a Roman style hand that I was doing in Peter Thornton's class recently. Hard on the hand, not easy to photograph, so it's not something I would do a lot of... But I really like the look of this type of lettering. The "State of Mind" was done with a ruling pen and Moon Palace Sumi Ink

Words: If you think you are beaten you are; if you think you dare not you don't. If you'd like to win but think you can't it's almost a cinch you won't. If you think you'll lose, you're lost, for out in the world you'll find success begins with a fellows will it's all in the state of mind. Walter D Wintle

Artwork matted. I covered cream toned mat board with a double adhesive tape (Sookwang) and lay a piece of lace paper over top, then sprinkled with Ritz Micro Fine Glitter "Warm Nuances". It gave it just a very light sparkle to it.
