Documented Life Project - Week #18


Hey Y'all, I've been a busy bee for the last few weeks thats why I havent been around these parts lately. Since I have a couple of art projects literally on the table, all screaming for my attention, I am finding it difficult to keep up with weekly challenges. Hopefully this up coming month will be kinder to me time wise.

For this weeks documented Life Project prompt we are to use an inspirational quote on our page. I like quotes, and every now and then I try to work them into my journal pages. So this one was right up my ally.

I first started with some splashes of pink watercolor paint, then put parts of the paper under running water, then continued adding more paint. In areas I use a purple twinkling H2o paint to give some shimmer but this cannot be seen in the photo.

A few swirls and circles with a white pen and voila..... a finished page. I tried to get a drop shadow effect by adding a light gray underneath the words.
The quote reads:

And forget not
that the earth
delights to feel 
your bare feet
and the winds
long to play 
with your hair

           Kahil Gibran

Thanks for checking in. Have a great week.
