The Documented Life Project 2016 remains: Unravelling the Past - embracing new beginnings. Our art challenge was to doodle a flower or ten.
Somehow this spread never came to life fully for me. I started making the background using the large stencil from the March 2016 Stencilgirl Club. To that I added flowers from the Deconstructed Double Zinnia stencil as well as the Nonsensical Bloom one.
I added the leaves by stamping using an Art Foamie that came as a gift with my rather large Art Foamie order. Really like these for stamping using acrylic paints.
At this stage I added the quotation: "Every end is a new beginning".
More was needed and I grabbed the "And so the Adventure begins" rubber stamp as well as the circular rings one (both from EEA01 stamp set designed by Everything-Art for PaperArtsy.
After that I started outlining (doodling) everything. The spread then hang around the studio for some days but whatever I thought of adding, it didn't seem right. Finally I cut some circles out of my flower photographs, added those to the centre of the large blooms, and outlined those and the leaves with water soluble oil pastels. I am still not totally convinced by these pages and more might be added but at the moment I'm calling it done.
