Two weeks have raced by….can't tell you what happened. Life just has a way of getting in the way sometimes.
I finally finished this spread for week 11 of the Documented Life Project. The challenge was to draw, photograph or collage a bird into the spread. I kept waiting for the perfect bird image to use…thought maybe I was actually going to have to draw a bird. That would be a novel idea
. But I did finally find the image in an old Victoria magazine. You know how you have the "Aha" moment? I just knew I wanted to use it. Plus I have the washi tape with the birds on the line that I could also incorporate.
I keep telling myself 15 minutes a day. I should be journaling every day! Notice the "should". I find that I want to make my journal entries little works of art. I'm not happy to sit down and slap some paint and writing on a page. I just have to mull over these page spreads, and it takes me several days or sometimes a couple weeks to finish them.
I'm happy with this one and so on to the next one -- Week 12 which is to "cut up a magazine and add to a spread." I sort of did that here, but I love cutting up magazines, so it will be more fun.
