DocumenTed Life ProjecT

The Documented Life Project 2015-The Journal...
Week two was to use the quote by Mary Shelley,
" The Beginning is always today."
Pthalo blue watercolor mixed with white gesso,
collage elements include painted paper 
and Sharpie marker.

The Week 3 challenge of the DLP was to 
use a Georgia O'Keeffe quote.
I chose a longer quote than the one suggested,
and the shapes are inspired by an O'Keeffe flower
painting, using vibrant watercolors.

Joining Elizabeth's T Tuesday link up party
over at Altered Book Lover blog,
and sharing an ornate vintage tea cup that
belonged to my husband's grandmother. The
flowers are in shallow relief around the outside
of the cup. This is a bit of my Fake Journal 
from 2014, which you can see here.

Hope you are enjoying a warm
beverage today, and visit the
T Tuesday party.


  1. I always enjoy your lovely art, and your O'Keeffe flowers are stunning. I was so lucky to visit the O'Keeffe gallery and museum in Santa Fe on the way home from LA one year. Her art is breathtaking and her flowers are LARGE. I adored seeing all her work, which included architecture, trees, and shells. sorry I got so wrapped up in what I was saying.

    That tea cup is SO beautiful. You draw so well. When are you going to turn that into a rubber stamp (grin-hint)?

    Thanks for sharing your DLP pages with us for T this week. They are LOVELY.

  2. That's such an elegant looking tea cup! Beautiful quote and piece inspired by O'Keefe, too. Happy tea day.
