The Documented Life Project-Week 4

January Theme
The Blank Page and How to Face It!

January 24-Art Challenge:
Journal Prompt: 
Words with Friends

I'm still not very comfortable with my own handwriting so 
I decided to incorporate words using some old book paper. I tore up pieces and glued them down with Matte Medium. I also stamped the word Friendship around my page.

I watered down some Gesso and applied a light coat over the 
words to lighten them and make them appear in the background. 
I then used my Micron pen and drew some doodles

I just recently bought some Inktense Pencils by Derwent and couldn't wait to use them. Thought this was a perfect opportunity to try them out. I applied a light amount of color to each petal. Then i used a wet watercolor brush on them to activate the color. As soon as i added the water, intense and vibrant colors appeared. I absolutely love them!  

And here is my finished journal page.  After adding color, i decided to stop there and keep it simple!
