Hi there! This week sure flew by for me, how about you? One of things on my to do list is to join along with The Documented Life Project. It's a weekly challenge of sorts that is meant to inspire all to get creative and play in an art journal. I'm feeling a little left behind but not too far that I can't catch up! Week's one theme was to create a page incorporating your front door.To create my page, I dug out Stampin' Up stamps that were from 2007 along with SU watercolor crayons that I am sure are older than that ~ many not even used!
I stamped, watercolored and doodled on a piece of water color paper:
I trimmed my paper to measure 7 1/2" x 7 1/2" then stitched it on an 8" x 8" piece of black cardstock. I stitched on a few pieces of patterned paper for contrast. I die cut a trio of hearts using Die-namics Hearts a Plenty die then stitched those into place as well. I certainly could have layered lots more and embellish my page BUT I am trying to focus on the "artsy" side of it and not get overwhelmed with the process.
Shifting gears 360 degrees, I have a rather clean and simple birthday card that I made featuring a variety of die cut pieces and a sentiment from Celebrate Big. April will be celebrating her 24th birthday at the end of January so this one is getting mailed to San Francisco tomorrow :)
For color inspiration, I joined along with the colourQ Challenge:
and for the card sketch inspiration, I joined along with Freshly Made Sketches:
Thanks so much for stopping by ~ I hope you enjoyed my projects!
Be Sweet ;)
