Art Journal and Pages for the Documented Life Project

Here are pics of my journal and the first pages I made for the Documented Life Project:

Weeks´ 1 challenge was to incorporate a sketch, photo or whatever of your front door:

 The second challenge was "Selfie":

For week 3 we had to add an envelope we received in the mail to our pages:

For week 4 we were challenged to write a secret message and then paint over it leaving one word stand out:

Coffee Time - Journal Spread

This page started out with this background I made earlier. I didn´t really like it, so I covered it with collage and paint;)

Here´s the spread after I added some scrapbook papers, book pages, music sheets and patterned tissue paper. 
 After that I added some acrylic paint and stenciled with texture paste. I also added some "coffee stains" with brown acrylic paint.

I drew some coffee cups on scrapbook paper and cut these out. The "coffee" was added with marker.

A little more stamping and stenciling.....

The finished page with the coffee cups, parts of a paper napkin with coffee beans and a few words. For the edges I used black distress ink. The white dots were added with a correction pen. I often use these for white doodles - cheaper than a white gel or ink pen ;)

I´m back ;)

Happy New Year to all of you!

(it´s still January, so it´s okay to say this still, isn´t it?)

To get me back into arting on a regular basis - and also into blogging - again, I signed up for the 29 Faces Art Challenge for February 2014 (check out the link on the right). And I want to get back into art journaling, so I joined Journal 52 and The Documented Life.

We´ll see where this will lead me :) Check back later for pictures :)
