Documented Life Project – Week 8

Hi and thanks for popping in. Week 8’s challenge was “Repeating Elements”. I tossed up a few ideas for this page but ended up going with circles for my element.

I started my page using one of my kid’s school work pages again, then brayered some colors over the top. I wiped some of the paint off so you could still see some of the writing below.

I wasn’t liking the colors at this point, I wanted it more vibrant. I added some different circle stencils with some heavy gel gloss. Normally I would use texture paste but I didn’t have any. I wasn’t really sure how the gel would react so it was a bit of an experiment. Once the gel was dry I went over the top with some vibrant colored sprays and added some circle stamps too.

Next I punched out some different sized circles from some scrap paper I had and glued them on using collage pauge.


I used yellow as a contrasting color on the circles and mixed it with a little white paint. I then drew around them with a  watercolor pencil and neo colour crayon to help them pop a bit. Here’s the finished page!
