Because of all the goings on with family and the weather, I haven't had much time for art. I am behind on my Documented Life Project Journal. We are In week 6 and I just finished week 4s entry! I think the size of the blank workspace (18" x 12") is a bit intimidating. Here are my pages for week 2 where the prompt was Art Challenge: Gesso
Journal Prompt: “The beginning is always today.” -Mary Shelley
I started with tissue paper collage on the pages, stamped, stenciled, more stamps on top. The section on the right was gesso through a stencil I made from a Sizzix die on the tissue paper collage. The area to the left was done with a Crafters Workshop 12x12" stencil and Gesso. I used distress markers to outline the leaves and blend in some shading. I have since removed the writing, and replaced the quote on the right with printed words. The circles are die cuts, black and white layered. Pleased with how this came out. Will up date when I finish it completely.
The third week prompt Art Challenge: The Color Wheel
Journal Prompt: "I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way . . . “ - Georgia O’Keeffe
I just finished week 4
Art Challenge: Writing
Journal Prompt: Words with Friends
Tomorrow I hope to be working on week 5 Art Challenge: Under Paper (paper on your work table that gets all inky while you work)
Journal Prompt: What Lies Beneath? Only papers I have are paper towels so this should be fun!
