The Documented Life

I was browsing Pinterest the other day when I
stumbled across a link for a 52 week Art Journaling
challenge called
The Documented Life.

In it you are challenged to recycle an old planner (or make a new one), 
and every Sunday a new prompt/challenge is issued.

Challenges are here
and here

I am jumping in a little bit late but will catch up as I can.
I am recycling a 2013 planner with really thin pages which will provide a challenge as I go as the pages are much thinner than I usually work with.
The cover is a work in progress so I will share that at a later date.

For now I have the first challenge done.
Through the artistic medium of your choice, show us a bit of where you live in the symbol of your door, entryway or porch. Think a bit about how you can use your door to express your personality, your life, what you value.

and here is what I came up with...

The page was covered with painted paper towels and some stamping.
For my front door I cut it out a bit, sanded the edges the after adhering it
to my page added some Modeling Paste to incorporate it into the textured background.

Silks acrylic paint was used to color the paste once it was dry.
Stamping was added for more design.
The number stickers were sanded for a bit of distressing.

My journaling is
"How many adventures await through this door?"

I can't wait to see what the rest of the year brings in challenges.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
