Documented Life Project - Words With Friends...

Hi friends!  Just a quick share for you today.  I'm way behind on the Documented Life Project; but I finished a page for the January 24th prompt.  Here's what the challenge was...

January Theme
The Blank Page and How to Face It!
January 24
Art Challenge:  Writing
Journal Prompt:  Words with Friends

Here's how mine turned out...
I started out by filling both pages with writing about what I feel is necessary in a friendship, what has and hasn't worked in the past, etc.  I didn't think I'd have much to say, but the words flowed freely once I got started.  :)

After that I just started playing with colors and shapes until an idea presented itself.  I've been doing that more and more lately, and finding that it's a good way to stave off fear of the blank page.  Anyhoo, after I figured out I wanted a big heart, I drew it with a stabilo all pencil, and then covered everything else with a light coat of gesso.  The wings were painted on top, and the pink shading is done with my ever-loving Tombow Markers.  Those things are soooooo useful.

The last thing was adding the quote with a permapaque marker.

So much fun!!!

I still have to catch up in my journal too. So glad they are doing this for free again this year. Hoping to be better at keeping up with it.

It looks bright and happy, love that you made a heart. That quote is a good one, haven't heard it before.

thanks for the visit to my blog, happy you could see my PL pages.
