The Documented Life Project - 3/29 (Week 14)...

The Documented Life Project

March 29, 2014 Challenge - Week 14 - Write your name and embellish it.

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

 

For my take on this challenge, I started with a painted base page from my scrap box.  I added stickers to the page and then painted over the whole thing with white acrylic paint.  Once it was dry, I peeled off the stickers to reveal the areas underneath.  I then scribbled around the letters with a black pen to make them stand out more and used a No. 2 pencil to add marks and more scribbles.

For Me @ Twenty-One...

Hello!

If you could tell yourself something at twenty-one what would it be? What advice would you give? What knowledge would you share?  I was asked to do just that for an on-going project.  Be sure to check out A Journey in Hindsight: At Twenty-One for more details.

I also want to thank everyone who joined me at 21 Secrets Live last night while I created this page. It was fun and I appreciate your questions and kind words!

Have a  blessed day!

Roben-Marie

The Documented Life Project

March 22 - Challenge (Week Thirteen) -  Ask someone else to draw on your page - finish it!

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

 

I took a different twist on this challenge.  Instead of having someone actually draw in my planner, I took a doodle drawing sent to me by Susan DaSilva Gallitto and added it to my planner page.  I added some of my Art Pops™ Stickers, acrylic paint, pencil marks and a photo to finish off my page.

Friday Fill-Ins...

Here we go!

1. Spring is in the air and I love having the windows open so I can feel the fresh breezes as they blow through the house.

2. I bought some tulips this week and I hope they bloom for me soon.

3. Broiled Rock Shrimp is delicious!

4. I have a weakness for luxury soap.  I found a new brand at Home Goods this week called You Smell Soap and it smells pretty amazing!!

5. Polka dot washi tape, bath soap and a little bird statue are three items that are on my desk at this very moment!

6. And as for the weekend, tonight I'm looking forward to studio time while the house is quiet, tomorrow my plans include picking my sister and her husband up from the airport and Sunday, I want to enjoy fellowship time after church!

Snap & Share Workshop Now Open for Registration...

Snap & Share Workshop

From Phone or Camera to Project - this video-based class gets those lovely photos off your camera roll and onto FOUR artsy mixed media photo projects perfect for display or gifting.  I will share with you the process I use to prepare my photos to send off to my local printer or print at home and/or my favorite online sources.

Step-by-step video tutorials take you through the process of creating these four artful projects. Follow along in my style or in your own - your choice. These projects are especially designed for any skill level. Beginners will be comfortable while advanced students can take off and make these as detailed as they desire. This class is for everyone, yes, YOU!

As we all love a good sale, for a limited time, this workshop will be offered at a special price of $24 (regular price $27)!  Sale ends Sunday, March 23 at 8:00AM EST.


For details on how to register for my workshops see details HERE!

 

 

Q: Will you show me how to use my camera, give me recommendations for the perfect camera or teach HOW to take photos?

A: No, this workshop does not cover a review of cameras or how to shoot your photos. 

This workshop is about getting those photos off of your camera or cell phone and into a format that can be used to create artsy projects.  I show you how "I" do it and then we create the projects using the photos.  Lots of techniques thrown in and ideas that can be used with or without photos.

 

Q: Will you show me how to use photo editing software other than Photoshop?

A: No, I am going to show how I prepare my photos for printing using Photoshop on a Mac.  Once you see the basics, they can be adapted to any photo editing software.  I am sorry I can't offer assistance with other software or computers.

The Documented Life Project

March 15 - Challenge (Week Twelve) -  Cut up a magazine - add!

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

I decided to use an Anthropologie catalog for my take on the challenge.

I cut out circles from the catalog and glued them randomly on the page. I finished my page with acrylic paint, colored pencils and crayons, black pen and lead pencil.
