My Documented Life - week 27

The new theme for July is ephemera and this week the challenge was to use old letters, tickets etc. I have included my flight memorabilia from our holiday to Italy this time last year.

Still practising faces

Well, you've heard of green men? Here's a green lady! Having laid down the background, I painted the face with acrylic paint and then added some definition with a pen.

My Documented Life - week 26

So, the prompt for this week was 'photos and words'. Here is my page. Click on the picture to get a better view of the details.

Opinions needed!

Up until now, I have always shown the whole of a journal page, so you can see that it is in my journal. Like this:

I have noticed, however, that others, particularly ones who are, let's say, more professional, often don't show the page as a whole. Like this:

I thought it would be interesting to know which you think is better.

The background of this tag is acrylic paint, with hand-drawn circles stuck on it. I then added some more paint through a stencil and stuck on the silhouette, which outlined and wrote on.

My Documented Life - week 25

I am not finding this month's prompts particularly easy. This week it was 'hometown inspiration'. I did, however, really like the page the guest artist, Paivi Eerola, created. So I tried to emulate it. I may not like the prompts, but I am creating pages quite outside my comfort zone, so that has to be good.

I really like grey, not grey days, but grey paint on a page or a wall. I wouldn't normally put it together with blue and pink, though. So, this page was a little out of my comfort zone but, as so often is the case when trying something different, I like the end result. What do you think?

The answers lie within

Hopeful hearts

I created the background of this page with lots of acrylic paint and stencils and then painted the sunflower on top.

My Documented Life - week 24

Okay, I'll be honest, this months theme of 'travel journalling' at DLP is not doing it for me. On the otherhand, it is making me think out of the box. This week, the prompt was recording memories and I thought of climbing fells in the Lake District. So, I started with a watercolour and stuck on some abstract tress. Not realistic, but a representation of happy days.

My Documented Life - week 23

I really can't believe that today we start week 24 of this year! Here is my DLP journal spread for last week. This month the theme is about travel journalling. This didn't give me much inspiration, but in September we plan to go to New York, so this was the basis for my page.

A page made from scraps ...

... even the paint used for the background was left over from other pages!
