Most of my time lately has been spent at the table in the craft room surrounded by papers, inks and paints — working on journal challenges. Here’s an update on The Documented Life Project.
The challenge for Week 15 was to use shades, tints and hues of one color. Yellow is my happy color so I layered acrylic paints, inks and sprays with stencils and stamps over a layer of gesso. Makes me smile 🙂
I was running a little behind on challenges. By the time I got to the challenge for Week 16 (add a cardboard food box to your page), it was just after Easter and I decided to incorporate the chocolate bunny box. Spray inks mixed with water and blotted with paper towel made a splotchy, pastel background. I cut up the box and added scrap paper eggs and bunnies.
The Week 17 challenge suggested a photo or drawing of our favorite shoes. I knew sketching my favorite casual shoes would be a fail, so I opted for the photo instead. Scrap paper, photos, stickers and four different washi tapes make the page. I ♥ washi tapes!
