Documented Life Project 2016

Excited to be a featured artist for the Documented Life Project 2016. 


This year, DLP is focused on the unPlanner and is all about simplicity. The brief was to create a Pocket Art Card measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches using my favorite number as the theme. You can read more about the project here and see my step-by-step tutorial below.

I started with a playing card...

I added a layer of black gesso to the surface...

Using PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Chalk Acrylics, I covered the surface with a variety of colors...

I adhered pieces of my Spellbinders Drip Drop die cut, and outlined them with a black gel pen to make them pop. I also used the gel pen to add a border to the edge of the card...

Given my love of circles, the number 8 has always been special to me. Using rub-ons, I embellished the card with several 8s...

The back of the card, also painted with black gesso, is now waiting for journaling, listing or plannering.

Lovely! The little line of 8's is great...as are the chalky colors...hmmm. I guess I love it all, true to form. Thank you for joining us again this year!
