Art Journal - Week 9

The prompt for week 9 in the Documented Life Project was High 5 Layers. At least 5 layers. So I layered:

  • safety envelopes glued in
  • gelli printing in white, turquoise, and yellow ocher
  • underpaper cut outs in orangy-red
  • grunged with black stabilo pencil and walnut distress stain
  • added book pages and a library card
  • black gesso through a stencil
  • journaling
Okay, so that was seven layers, but I always think more is better. ;)

Here is my process....

This is what I cut the circles and rectangle pieces from. It is the underpaper that I've been using under my projects that I've been doing. I always save them and use them in other projects. 


  1. I wasn't sure how all those separate pieces would blend, but they form a very, pleasing cohesive unit

    1. Well, you are being kind, CJ, because it really isn't all that great. Sometimes it just doesn't work like you want it to. :)


Thanks for stopping by my blog!
