DLP #8

Good morning everyone!

I went pretty easy with this 
Documented Life Project page.

Art Challenge - Repeating Elements
Journal Prompt - It's worth repeating

I started with the leftover paints from the last project that I did
spreading them all over the page...

I kinda liked how that looked but I had this stencil and always wanted to overlap it and see how it looked, 
(my repeated element)
so I took three coordinating paint colors and did this...


Now what do I do?
I don't want to cover it!

Ah ha!

Paint a flower!
Add a quote!
Happy place!

Hi-dee Ho Artsy Peeps!

Documented Life Project
Feb 14th
Art Challenge - Cover up the good stuff
Journal Prompt - Going undercover

Having trouble covering things up
 this challenge had me really thinking hard.....
"What good stuff am I going to put down and then cover up?"

After looking through my hoarded stash of papers...

this is my interpretation.....

I started with this paper below.....

Once I got this paper laid down I just went a bit nuts with some paints
then added my word "Dream"
finished with a stars stencil.
Simple and so much fun!

DLP #6

Hello crafty peeps!

I'm finally into February with the 
Documented Life Projects!

February's Theme is Layers you will Love!
Feb 7th Challenge - When not to Stop
Journal Prompt - "Don't stop till you get enough"

This one was quite a challenge for me!
I have such a hard time covering things up in the layering processes!
So what I did was grab some old scrap papers from my scrap stash and started with that.
Ripped papers and glued them down, 
then I added some texture with a layer of stenciling with modeling paste,
on top of that I grabbed some bitty scraps of lace trims that I had no idea what to do with but to stick in a jar for ever!

From there I decided to cover it all up
(because I thought it was terrible)
with paints.
Then I added the journal prompt 
(using alphabet letters from My Artistic Adventures Etsy)

Our last challenge before Spring/Summer break is going on now over at 
My Artistic Adventures Challenge blog
(check out the link below for more info)
The theme is Spring Colors!
Hope you can join us!

And still feeling like it needed more I sprinkled some glitter over all!

DLP #5

Howdy friends!

 January 31st is done!
I'm only about 3 months behind!

This Challenge was Under Paper
The Journal Prompt was What Lies Beneath

Now I don't usually work with an under paper so what I did was while I was working on #4's challenge I grabbed a piece of card stock and smooshed it into my leftover paints in the plate I was using and ended up with this.....

I glued it down in my journal and added some antiqued tissue paper on top to tone down the brightness.

On top of that I added some stenciling with burnt umber paint and 

 a sentiment/poem.
