I collaged a pretty piece of paper that I had received some time ago in an art journal page swap, some old newspaper that my sister-in-law gave me for art projects, a piece of tissue paper that had been used in one of my daughter-in-laws shower gifts and a piece of burlap that I cut down and frayed. I also used some spray inks and paints and some modeling paste through a stencil.
Here is the back of the page. The piece of watercolor paper that I used already had been inked through a stencil. I love the way the flowers pop so I didn't want to work on that side of the paper for the collage. I just decided to keep it clean and let it be the backside of my page.
When I posted the picture of my page on Facebook, I did a little ramble about how much this process has meant to me. I am going to copy it here too.
FB Post - Week 9
Please pardon my ramble but I feel the need to get this out. I am loving this project. I have never been a person who journaled in words just art. I have never kept a diary even as a young girl. When I started this project I figured I would just do the art prompts and had no notion of what I would write daily. I must say that I have completed surprised myself with the little bits of life that I have noted in my planner. As the weeks have gone on I have found it difficult to find room for all the little things I want to write down and remember. I have also been using it to document my new granddaughter as she changes from week to week. She was born in November an dit is such fun to include a picture of her each week. I am totally obsessed with my little planner and don't go anywhere without it. It is always with me even if I am moving from room to room. Everyone at work wants to look at it each day to see what I have added. I just want to thank the "Fab 5" for this wonderful idea. And this group is such a loving and supportive bunch of lovely people. OK. Ramble finished.
Thanks for stopping by.
