"Smile" - 12x12 Layout

Hey, I am back again with a 12x12 layout I did as soon as I got up this morning. I just felt a little creative.

I used all products from Amy Tangeraine except the dollie, wood veneers,paper clip, twine and the pink love heart sticker.

I am absolutely loving these super cute Chic Tags wood veneer sequins.

The Documented Life Project (DLP) - Weeks 1 - 9

Good morning everyone on this lovely Sunday morning. This morning I thought I better do a post of all my DLP pages so far this year as I haven't posted any. So here they are. 

TITLE - I used watercolours for the background and stamps and just alpha stickers from my stash.

WEEK 1 - Challenge - Book Paper
I ripped up old book paper and stuck it down and just used water colous for the background.

WEEK 2 - Challenge - Gesso
I really loved this weeks challenge as I really love gesso. I used a different medium for the background and used party streamers. I then just gessoed over the top and added a quotes and a little photo and journaling. (The bubble on the right hand side weren't meant to be there but once I did the next week and heat tooled it the bubble made a extra effect)

WEEK 3 - Challenge - A Colour Wheel
Now each week also has a journal promt as well which is where the shapes came from on the page. So the rainbow is just watercolour as I loved how the colours blended together. I didn't have any plan for how the shapes would go but that is just how they turned out.

WEEK 4 - Challenge - Writing
First of all to get the effect with the watercolours I used gesso but only did it in places quite thick than once the gesso was dry I use watercolours to do the background. I found that my colours had to be really watery as well. Now for the writing part, I just used a Postca white paint pen to write friends in the background and to add little detail. U also used a Gold Postca paint pen for the quote and just traced around it with a sharpie.

WEEK 5 - Challenge - Under Paper
I had this under paper from when I watercoloured and really loved the bright colours so I really didn't want to do much to it so I stuck the paper down and added from plain white sptexture paste and used my Postca paint pen again to add a few details.

WEEK 6 - Challenge - When Not To Stop
This week was a challenge as I didn't really know what do to so I ended up with this but I still don't think it is finished. Not sure, will come back to it later.

WEEK 7 - Challenge - Cover Up Good Stuff
I had some left over coloured doilies from my DT goodie from Deer & Fawn Designs so I decided to use them. The bottom layer is old fabric patters ripped up with just white paint over the top. Then I used a nifty idea from my follow DT buddy at Deer& Fawn Designs Connie who used lids on one of her scrapbook pages. I also used a cork from a wine bottle also to add detail and some texture paste.

WEEK 8 - Challenge - Repeating Elements.
It's pretty obvious what I repeated. Again I used a lid with Staz On ink, stamps and paint.

WEEK 9 - Challenge - Using At Least 5 Layers
Layer 1 - Tea & Coffee died book paper 
Layer 2 - Light cover of gesso
Layer 3 - washi Tape 
Layer 4 - Stamps and doodling 
Layer 5 - Qoute (alpha stickers)

So I hope you enjoyed looking at my DLP pages and I will be back soon to share more.

Have a lovely Sunday .
