The Documented Life Project Week Six
Well, week six has ended, and I'm still enjoying working in my Documented Life Project journal/planner. This week, the challenge was to take inspiration from Pinterest. I recently pinned this project, from Anna-Karin from Layers of Ink:
I love the simple color scheme, and the black ink on vintage paper.
I made this tip-in for my journal:
I didn't have the same color of green, and didn't feel like mixing any, so I used a light turquoise acrylic craft paint mixed with lots of water to add a wash to my white cardstock. I stamped the torn vintage book page with black Archival Ink, and Tim Holtz Stamps, and adhered it to my page with gel medium.
I stamped a ruler for the top and bottom border, using Aquamarine Archival. At the top, I applied Tumbled Glass Distress Paint directly to the page, sprayed it with water and allowed it to drip. After partially drying it with my heat gun, I blotted it with a paper towel.
Here is my final piece:
Can you see what I added?
Here's a hint:
I used my Sharpie fine point pen to add some stitching to the stenciled flourishes. Now I'm happy!
I hope you find time to play with your supplies this week!
