The challenge for week 21 in the Documented Life Project was to add embroidery or embroidery floss... or thread.
THE DOCUMENTED LIFE - WEEK 21Actually this page ended up in Week 20 of my Moleskine Planner. The mood hit me just right and I thought it was perfect for Week 21's challenge. I have lots of weeks to catch up on, and I'm totally ok with switching the weeks around a little. I'm working on them as the mood inspires me and I totally think that's how art journaling should be anyways, right?
THE PROCESSThis one came together rather quickly and I must say that I think it's my all time favorite right now. I picked colors that were similar to Moriah's ballet costume and using my fingers I spread out the paint.
I then thought it needed some metallic paint to really make it pop. I grabbed some gold paint and used my fingers again.
To complete the challenge and add embroidery floss or thread, I was a little stumped at first. I remembered that I had bought some metallic thread and the turquoise was perfect.
I added some purple fiber paper I found in my stash and the metallic thread. I had some chipboard hearts that I thought would be perfect for my phrase theme. I added some gesso and some of the gold paint and dried it with my heat gun. I kinda love how it bubbled up. It gives it some cool texture.
I still didn't think it was perfect yet and was missing something. To go along with the heart theme, I grabbed this adorable stencil I received from Simon Says Stamp! I also grabbed my gold modeling cream and a palette knife and spread it over the stencil in the corners. That's it. I think it's perfect now!
