Art to the 5th blog has been hosting a year-long
challenge called The Documented Life Project.
Each week there is a different prompt to create
a mixed media page in your art journal/planner.
Above, a two-page spread from the challenge
Week 39: Drips and Splatters.
Watercolor, Sharpie pen, and adhesive numbers.
Above, the challenge was to use 3 colors
that you never use together. I chose
purple, green and orange.
Polka dots are fun, in all shapes & sizes!
Mixed media collage: Watercolor, scrapbook paper,
painted papers, Sharpie pen, & Washi tape.
Each week there is a tip-in (that's why there's tape or
fabric on the side of the page) that flips open to reveal
a two-page spread. Above, mixed media collage~
Stars: mine are 'Medieval.'
This text page that I used for the tip-in
already had stars on it! (right side
illustration-shields) How did that
happen when I prepared this
11 months ago!? Delightful...
from a book about knights.
"Draw what you see."
The king lurking in the background was
on the vintage page that I had removed
from an old library book and used as
my tip-in page. I drew the apples in
Sharpie marker and added watercolor.
What challenges have you been doing?
