The Documented Life Project: Week 18 & 19

The prompt for week 18 was to add an inspiring quote.

I intended on using a nice font for my quote but spaced or something and did nothing different.  I created the circles with india ink using a thin brush.  The background is latex paint.  The magazines last year used to have a coupon for free paint at Lowe’s.  I picked up a few.  When I use them I usually don’t gesso because the latex prevents anything from bleeding through.  However it doesn’t make the pages thicker like gesso.  For the quote page I did use gesso as I wanted to write the word fear in it.  I probably should have made the gesso a little thicker so that the word would stand out a bit more.

Week 18
Fear written in the gesso.


The prompt for week 19 was to write about a random act of kindness.

For this week I didn’t have anything to write about so I just used the two pages for the prompt.  The background was created with 3 different latex paint colors.  The branches were created with india ink using a dropper. The flowers were created with acrylic paint.  I wrote about my random act of kindness on cardstock that I had painted and then glued it to the page.
