A week or so ago I did a bit more in my DLP! As I have previously stated I am not keeping up with this, and not stressing myself out by doing so. I am purely joining in when I fancy it!
This was a bit of play time and I watched the video one of the DLP people had put up where they did an art journal page in 15 mins. It all looked so easy so I thought why not!
Well this is where I was at when the 15 minute alarm went off!
Not a bad start, but by no means a finished page ready to journal onto!
So I set the alarm for another 15 minutes and carried on!
Now this is starting to get there, with some details and a bit of stamping and outlining and doodling. But I still wasn’t happy that it was finished. Time to reset the timer!
Ten minutes later … So 40 mins in total and I was happy to call an end to the session!
Whilst I loved the idea of the 15 minute journalling, I either don’t work quickly enough or have less stuff around to make this an easy option! Having said that 40 mins isn’t too bad and I did enjoy the play time!
Well about a week after this I added a few more details … Mainly some blue liquid pearl dots! But then left it again!
Now that I had this page … What to do with it?
Well the pages were for my March calendar page as part of the Kate Crane art journalling calendar challenge.
So a few days ago I decided to finish it off! I grabbed some white card and washed it with some ink and water. Then I cut it into shapes and doodled edges and numbers and adhered it over the page.
Then I decided to add some foam letter stickers for the month, and a doodled panel with the bird cut from the inked card and a line from a Maya Angelou poem. This I added to the tip in page that I had wiped off the paint onto!
The addition of the bird makes it suitable too for the latest week for DLP “add a bird”, so a perfect motif for my page!
