The Documented Life Project - week 5
Week 5 challenge was to use a doodled border.
For the tip in I used a sheet of kraft paper to which I applied a thin coat of gesso. I didn't want to cover the page and left a border of the kraft paper showing. I applied some torn pieces of newspaper onto the page with some mat medium. Then I applied acrylic paint in teal blue and a green. I swooped (is that even a word?) some black gesso onto the page and used the tip of the brush to doodle lines into the paint. Then I stamped a doodled border on that looks like sewing machine stitching. A few stamped stars a quote and voila it's a journal page!
Week 4 for this challenge was to create your own character. The character should reflect something of yourself or someone you admire or could be a completely made-up person.
My ATC for this week has a pretty stamped girl that I placed in front of the Eiffel tower with the words Bon Jour. I colored her with Inktense pencils and a water brush and the background is inked with Dylusions pink lemonade. She is a completely made up character that reflects my yearning to visit Paris someday.
Here is my ATC in my weekly planner with it's own little envelope.
Thanks for stopping by.
