I was on a trip while making Documented life Project #11 which brought a few challenges. The main one being I didn't have unlimited supplies and ephemera to work with. Here is the theme the gals came up with this week.
The next page in my journal had some texture beads already on it. I had brought dylusions paints with me, using the dabber sponge applicator made it easy to apply paint while sitting in the passenger seat.
For the borders I added the black through a Tim Holtz stencil and once dry a few dots with a sharpie paint pen. The title was also with a TH stencil but this time I used archival black ink. Again I added some dots with my sharpie. I had this tag with me that was just paint & stencil with colors that looked good on the page so on it went. I seem to be in a -main feature smack dab in the middle mode- which is odd for me but I am going with it. TIP: When I travel with limited supplies I usually bring pre-stamped card stock so I am not hauling stamp sets. Dina Wakley's cute owl, hearts & saying did the trick. For these I used distress stains to paint the owl and hearts.
As I was in Dina mode I decided to do my journaling in rough pen. It is the first time I have done this but I kinda like it as I got a lot of writing in but it doesn't detract from the page. I wrote about what was going on at the time of the prompt when life was busy, and crazy. I did feel like I had to make a determined effort not to lost my mind so this prompt was perfect. That is the beauty of art journal, I didn't have to journal about the now, just whatever writing fit the prompt. If you like this page please leave me a comment! Art on!
