LD17 week 7

This month’s theme is love and the quote was supplied. I’m using a new A3 journal Tony bought me, so this is big. I used Distress Paints, Golden fluid acrylics, 7 Gypsies papers, Pitt pen, stencils and washi tape.

LD17 week 6

This week’s challenge was to use multiple layers; there was also a great quote but I haven’t used it because I want my pages to document our lives. This is our grandson Rory, who is learning to drag race just like his Dad, Adam (seen filling the tank). I used gesso, Tim Holtz Distress paint, an old painting, gelli prints and fabric trim.

Starting the year by crafting

Today I sat down to finish the Documented Life project for 2016. I enjoyed being part of this, but found this year’s format suited me less than the one in 2015 so ended up doing my own thing a lot of the time. No great surprise there, really… People angst about having the right folder or doing it the right way – it’s art & craft, there is no right way! Just enjoy creating and stop fussing so much.

The creators of DLP have decided to move onto other things so Mixie has started a Life Documented Facebook page and I’ve decided to join in. No doubt I’ll ignore the prompts and do my own thing again, but it’s good to share ideas and encourage others along the way.

Shown are the last page in my DLP16 folder and cover page and monthly divider for 2017, which I am using the same recycled Smashbook for.
