Documented Life Project, Weeks 38 and 39

Week 38:  Add black and white marks over color. I've been watching Rae Missigmam's videos from last year showing 15 minutes of mixed media. It's been so helpful and freeing! All of a sudden, I feel like, "yeah! I can do this!". So, needless, to say, I had a blast doing this card:
A little collage, a little paint and then black and white uni-ball pens. I really love how it turned out!

And then, there is week 39- add stripes. This was also really fun to do. I started with distress inks over an old book page. First, watered down in a wash and then pounced through various stencils. Then I took another book page and tore it into skinny stripes. I added the stripes and some hole reinforcers to the card, then stitched around some of the elements. When I got that far, I thought it looked a little like a city scape. I probably should have left it alone here, but I added a favorite line from an old Doors song (Hello, I Love You). 

I've been taking a little break from messy art work and playing around on Polyvore. It's really fun and I can do it on the couch! They have contests which help to focus my creative efforts.

Happy making, Friends!
