Happy Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2014

Here is my week 7 challenge for The Documented Life Project. I photoshopped the words on top so I could use it as a card but the original in my planner is just plain. This was fast and dirty. Seriously. I did a lot of spraying, splattering, and finger painting. Even after scrubbing and a shower my fingers are still stained!

Hope everyone has a wonderful day today.



Paper art

One of the things I like about social media is finding new projects to get involved with. This one is called The Documented Life Project and it's a combination planner, journal, and art journal. Each week you are given a prompt to make a piece of art from. I started a bit late so I have a lot of catching up to do, but it's fun and I really did forget how much I like playing with paint and collage. I used the planner recommended, it's my first time using a Moleskine. I painted the cover and added monthly tabs. The colors are actually a bit duller in person, too bad. I like this version!

This was the first week's prompt, to do a page incorporating your front door. I took a photo of my door and then used a watercolor filter in Photoshop. Printed it out and glued it to the page. Then I stamped on it, hated it, so tried to cover it with paint. Made kind of a mess. But it will do.
