Daily Journaling Week 26

We are officially half way through the year!! I'm following the prompts of the original Documented Life 2014Week 26: add a line from your favourite book
And from the blog for Life Documented 2017 HERE : Monthly Theme : Art marks and doodles
QUOTE : Life is the flower for which LOVE is the honey. 
               Victor Hugo.
PROMPT: print and stencil marks on the background. 
TECHNIQUE: Use doodles to colour in areas.
When I opened to my next page, I already had this lovely stenciled design from cleaning a stencil from a previous project 
I had some old rub-ons so decided to use them to provide a bit of a grungy journaling space for my week
I wanted to follow Louise's fun prompt of print and stencil marks in the background so on the right page I glued down papers which had been printed and over-printed using stencils with my gelli plate. 
I started doodling with a black pen, and added a butterfly which is brightly orange due to using it as a mask in a previous project.
I needed to introduce more colour so added doodles with my moonlight pens = use doodles to colour in areas
Instead of adding a line from your favourite book I thought I'd use the quote from this year's prompt since it's so apt. It's fun to print your quote onto deli or tissue paper by gluing it to a carrier sheet (more detail HERE) - it makes a feature of the words without them being too heavy
And now I have to farewell a fantastic birthday month - June was very good to me ♥
You can see all my posts about this project HERE and my Flickr album HERE.


  1. Awww, your birthday month is over! But since it was such an important milestone, I think you're entitled to own the whole year! Loving your new spread! I would definitely recognise it as yours!

  2. Thanks Zsuzsa - I will let my family know that the celebrating should continue ;-)
