Documented Life Project - Week 3


Here is my take on week 3 of the Documented Life Project, here is this weeks prompt - more info HERE:

The Blank Page and How to Face It!

January 17

Art Challenge: The Color Wheel

Journal Prompt: "I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way . . . " - Georgia O’Keeffe

I started by covering my page with two Fresco paint colours - Vintage Lace and Moonlight. I then used the script stamp from Paperartsy's Sara Naumann plate all over the background in Snowflake paint.

I drew my umbrella on card and coloured the colour wheel onto it using distress markers. Then stamped the Dylusions woman onto both the page and some card. I used distress markers to colour her coat and cut it out and added her to the page before also adding the umbrella using a small brad.

I inked around the page edged with black soot distress ink and around the main images using a smudged charcoal pencil.

I stamped and cut out my quote for this week and added it to the page along with some more scribbly black fineliner pen.

Thanks for stopping by today,

  1. Love your colour wheel brolly, such a great contrast to you neutral background and figure, really pops x

  2. This is stunning Claire, what a great idea to make the umbrella with the colour wheel. I have always loved that Dyan lady stamp, but have never inked mine up - I may just have a go now thanks to your wonderful inspiration! Anne xx

  3. WOW Claire, love how you have used Dyan's couture lady she looks amazing on your delicate background. What a fantastic idea to use an umbrella as a colour wheel, afraid i can't read the sentiment but loving your whole page :-) xxx

  4. Fabulous grey shading on the coat, and what a rainbow of colour for the umbrella - great page!
