Art Journal Page - The Documented Life - Wk 3

Hello all, 

This last week over at The Documented Life, the Art Journal challenge was:
The Colour Wheel

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

My interpretation:

I used a Jane Daveport stencil for the face on some scrapbook ledger paper.  The flowers and colour wheel come from Rebecca McMeen's digital kits, Bentley and Painterly, which I collaged together in PSE before printing (bit of guess work required for the size etc, but glad it worked out okay). 

It started life like this:

I had gessoed all over the page, added some texture paste through some stencils and waited for it to dry. Then using a mixture of sprays and acrylic paints, added my colours.

Stamping over the paint once dry.

I drew a few circles before painting over the whole page in blue acrylic paint (Jo Sonya - Prussion Blue Hue, one of my favourite colours), and adding my collage and details. A close-up photo:

And that's it! The next challenge is up. Go HERE for more details about this challenge, or HERE for more details about The Documented Life.

Thank you for coming by. Hoping your weekend is a productive and happy one!


  1. Wow! It's so beautiful. Like all the texture and colors!

  2. This is stunning! The back ground looks amazing and your girl is so beautiful and vibrant!!

  3. OK. I am officially depressed. You are soooo good at this!!!! I think you need to start teaching us mere mortals. Even with the sort of 'steps' photos.....I just don't think I could ever do anything half so awesome!!!


Thankyou so much for taking the time to leave a comment. I read every one of them and it always warms my heart. Have a great day!
