the documented life - weekly challenge 13

Welcome to Week 12 of The Documented Life Project!

March 22 - Have Someone Draw on Your Page - You Finish It!

I loved this week's challenge. I asked my daughter to draw something for me. She agreed, but wanted to draw on a pretty piece of deli paper. I handed her a large sheet and she went to town. Ten minutes later I had this...a teeny tiny violin. I was so surprised she drew it so small. She said it is easier to draw small things, rather than large things. I never knew, but thinking about it, I think she may just be right.

As luck would have it, my tip in this week happened to be a gelli print I created a while back. I loved all the bright color and so with her teeny tiny gelli print I was able to create a super colorful collage around her adorable image.

I incorported bits and pieces of what she loves and made a note of what it takes to have a hobby like hers.

Lastly, I incorporated pieces of my favorite art journal pages ( I cut these up and ran them through the Xyron to turn them into stickers ), tiny letter stickers and lots of painted deli paper strips which I attached using a glue stick.

I love carrying around just another little piece of my LIFE with me - isn't this project the best thing ever?


This week's challenge supplies: scissors, uhu glue stick, Golden Acrylic in ultramarine blue, Golden Acrylic in green gold, Golden Acrylic in Diarylide Yellow, Apple Barrel Craft Paints in Real Red Gloss and White Gloss, Deli PaperPainters Brand Paint Pens in White and Black.
