The Documented Life Project - 6/21 (Week 26)...

The Documented Life Project

June 21, 2014 - Week 26 Challenge - Add a bible verse that inspires you  - or a line from your favorite book.

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

"For he will be like a tree planted by the water, That extends its roots by a stream And will not fear when the heat comes; But its leaves will be green, And it will not be anxious in a year of drought Nor cease to yield fruit." - Jeremiah 17:8

 

 Step One: I adhered a piece of inky "under paper" to the base of my page as the first layer.  Next, I added text/bookpaper and acrylic white paint.  I finished this layer with the Bubbles Stencil and turquoise acrylic paint.

Step Two: I added scribble markes with the Sabilo Marks All Pencil and used the Chevron Stencil with pink fluorescent paint.

Step Three: I brushed on white paint, pencil marks and stamped the triangle in white from AHA Stamps.

Step Four: I stiched on part of an Art Pops™ Card and added my Bible verse and stitched to the page.  I also added some paint marks with raw umber and more triangles with white acrylic paint.

Step Five: I added white circles, more triangles and cross stamps, doodle marks, text paper and covered the pink chevron stencil marks with "Night" acrylic paint.

Journal Bound Workshop is Live...

Showcase your gathered mail art stash within two uniquely styled and bound journals. Get those mailed treasures out of your bins and into an artful display - journal style.

Together we will travel a step by step approach to creating a colorful grungy cover in my signature messy style. Then we will bind our art-filled journals using a simple and creative system that once quickly learned can be used repeatedly to create handmade art journals from here forward.

Don’t have a mail art collection? I will demonstrate an alternative using found papers. Beginners are welcome and encouraged in this workshop as each process is fully demonstrated to accommodate all skill levels. I even include downloads of my designs for your use.

So many possibilities, so much creativity. Pack your bags, we are Journal Bound!

See more details, including photos and the supplies list HERE!

Thanks to the following amazing ladies for the beautiful mail art that I have received and saved for such a time as this!!!  Sandi Keene, Sophie DeCorte, Samantha Kira Harding, Lynn Scott, Renee Plains, Susan Gallitto, Rae Missigman, Kristin Peterson, Jane Bain and Coral Lee.

NOTE: The mail art pieces used in this class are not created in the class. They are part of my stash and used along with other bits and pieces.
