    The Documented Life: Weeks 38 & 39

    Week 38 – Draw, paint, doodle, sketch a feather onto your page.  Don’t draw, paint, doodle or sketch?  Incorporate a real feather onto your page!

    For this one I decided to do something different.  I decided to actually create a mini dream catcher.  I created the circle part with a soft clay.  It took 3 attempts to finally get it to work because they kept breaking when trying to run the thread through.  I didn’t have a needle that would work so I had to use something else to put the thread through the holes.  With the first two attempts it made the holes much larger and broke the circle.  With the third attempt it went much better though it did slightly break but I was able to fix it.  The dream catcher was created with book binding thread since it was the thickest I had, glass beads, painted with acrylic paint and sealed with matte varnish.  I attached the dream catcher to the planner page but I might remove it and display it somewhere.

    Week 39 – Add splatters and drips.

    After painting the background with latex paint I used india ink to create the splatters and drips.
