Documented Life Project: Week Ten


Week Ten Challenge: Make a list of the things that make you YOU

I started building a background by swiping on paint in lime, blue and white using a hotel card and my fingers. My paintbrushes are feeling neglected as I have not been using them lately. I like fast - this method is fast.

I have been making some faux gelli plate prints on deli paper and I loved the colors on this one so I knew I would be using it. I cut the sheet to fit my page and adhered it with gel medium.

I had bought some cheap (Michael's Artist's Loft gloss gel medium) with a coupon to try it out and I was happy that it worked great and gave my piece a shiny appearance.  I am liking where this is headed.

I added a gold paint pen around the edges to give it a shiny look then added sticker letter for ME that I doodled around. I added a deli paper doodled flower and wrote my list on strips of paper that I cut out and adhered to the page with more gel medium. I outlined the strips of paper with scratchy pen marks and walked away. Sometimes the hardest part is calling it finished!

Enjoy this week!
