Documented Life ~ Weeks 36 – 39

I took a little blog break recently but not a break from the Documented Life Project.  I wasn’t sure if I’d keep this up all year, but I’m pleased that I’ve not missed a week yet.  Hope I didn’t just jinx myself.  Here are the pages finished during my break.

Week 36 Challenge (August 31) :  black and white


I didn’t have a large piece of paper to cover the page so I decided to use the odd scraps in a grid pattern.  Five different washi tapes — love washi tapes — and white pen.

Week 37 Challenge (September 7) :  use a white pen prominently on your page


This is definitely a favorite page.  The background is mixed media paper (attached to the journal later) with acrylic paints spread with a plastic card.  Broad and fine tip white pens for the designs.

Week 38 Challenge (September 14) :  draw, paint, doodle, sketch a feather onto your page


I’ve used this stencil lots of times and use broad strokes with a paint pen to add the feather details.

Week 39 Challenge (September 21) :  splatters and drips


A thin layer of gesso as a background to strengthen the paper and then very watery watercolor dabbed at the top.  A couple of sprays of water to encourage the paint to run.  Paint brush splatters to finish.  There was probably more that could be done with the page, but I really like the colors and simplicity.
