My Documented Life Project

Week 4 

I knew exactly what I wanted to do for this challenge, well as much as the dreamcatcher and quote. I had already gessoed my page so I painted a light rainbow with acrylic paint, I covered up the circle by placing a can over the top and painted another darker layer of rainbow. While I still had the tin there I put down the swirly background stencil and dabbed black paint through it. I used another stencil and black paint for the inside of the dreamcatcher. I painted the feathers with a dry brush of gesso and added the rainbow colours to them and around the circle of the dreamcatcher, then added my quote and I was finished. 
Thanks so much

My Documented Life Project

Week 3
I was unsure what I was going to do for this weeks prompt, the colour wheel. I love colour, rainbows in particular but struggled with doing another quote again. I used gesso and then watercolour crayons for the background and placed a stencil down and wiped with a baby wipe. I used a butterfly stencil and black acrylic paint. I was inspired by Terri Larue as she used paint samples, so I used them for the flowers and letter tiles. The quote says "colour me Rainbow" and my week three challenge page was complete.
