Mail Art Love...

Happy Monday!!

This past weekend I decided to create some colorful mail art.  For these pieces, I used prints made with my GelliArts Gel Printing Plate and then added printable digital elements from Art Bits Number 2 Digital Elements Pack, Art Pops™ Cards, washi tape and stitching to finish them off.

Have a  blessed day!

The Documented Life Project - 2/8 (Week Seven)...

The Documented Life Project

February 8 - Challenge (Week Seven) -  Draw one shape - repeat - add color.

Visit the Art to the 5th blog for more inspiration.

 

 I decided to interpret this challenge in a different way. I cut out shapes and repeated them by gluing them to my page with  UHU Stic Glue Sticks.

 

 

I started my page by adding layers of acrylic paint.  I used Golden Fluid Acrylics, 2170 Green Gold, Golden Titanium White acrylic paint, Golden Cerulean Blue acrylic paint and Golden Transparent Red Iron Oxide acrylic paint.

I cut shapes from old papers and color copies of my journal pages. I used this ONE and this ONE.

Next, I scribbled around the little houses with a regular no. 2 pencil and a Stabilo Graphite Pencil.

Next, I scribbled around the houses with Portfolio Oil Pastels.

 

To finish off my page, I added more white paint, black acrylic paint more pencil marks and used a Bic Wite-Out Shake - N Squeeze Correction Pen to make little marks along the top.

The Documented Life Project - 2/1 (Week Six)...

The Documented Life Project

February 1 - Challenge (Week Six) -  Open your Pinterest board and be inspired.

Visit the Art to the 5th blog for more inspiration and challenge guidelines.

 

I am very inspired by the work of Jacqui Fehl and I chose one of her mixed media pieces called Birdland as inspiration for my take on this week's challenge. I call mine "Odd Moments of Mischief."

 

 

 

I started by adding layers of papers, paint and marks with pencils and wax crayons.

 

I sketched out my little abstract bird and painted the outer edge with acrylic paints, added black pencil marks around the edges and found words cut from an old book.

The Documented Life Project - 1/25 (Week Five)...

The Documented Life Project

January 26 Challenge (Week Five) -  Add a doodle border.

Visit the Art to the 5th blog for more inspiration.

I layered a variety of papers onto my page first and then stamped my doodle border with one of my Mixed Media Essentials rubber stamps called Scalloped Border. I printed the heading words onto a piece of transparency film and adhered to the page with a glue stick.  Font credit: EHI_Nessa. Prompt credit: @paperedthoughts

I added a little bit of wash tape, pieces of painted paper bits, white acrylic paint and scribbled with a no.2 lead pencil.

I enhanced the doodle border by adding little dots with a black pen and watercolor pencil. I used a pink watercolor pencil to doodle at the top and side of the page.

The Documented Life Project - 1/18...

The Documented Life Project

January 18 Challenge (Week Four) -  Write a secret message then paint over all but one key word.

Visit the Art to the 5th blog for more inspiration.

 

I decided to use an old telegram from my stash of papers.

I used white acrylic paint to cover parts of it but decided to keep "be full of joy" visible instead of just one word.

I used a variety of papers, stickers and rubber stamps to complete my page.
