the prompts of the original Documented Life 2014. Week 19 : Document a random act of kindness from you and Week 20 : Use a rubber stamp in a new way. And from the blog for Life Documented 2017 HERE : Monthly Theme: Bold and Bright
Week 19 : Prompt: Make your own Collage Paper
Technique: use black gesso and tape in an envelope!Week 20 : Prompt: Paint colors, draw shapes and paint around them
Technique: Cut up your piece and make a page for your journal.
I sifted through all of that, and my original intention was to start by collaging using lovely inky under paper = a cheat's way of making your own collage paper ;-) , and then to use rubber stamps to put on shapes that I then painted around. Here's what actually happened. First I went to my journal to look at the page size to decide how I'd do the journaling part with the prompt part - my next spread is clean, but the one after has already had stencil paint cleaned off on it so I decided to use the blank spread for the prompts, and my 2-week's journaling over the already-painted pages.
The blank pages got the under paper treatment as my first collaged layer
Then instead of a stamp I decided to just use a mask and black paint (close enough to the prompt for black gesso I reckon!)
Saturday was our annual Tote & Gloat quilt show -
