The Documented Life Project week 19


This planner page for the Documented Life Project celebrates a random act of kindness. I had been playing around with a fringed watercolor brush in another art journal and thought it made fantastic petals. So I created a flower shape and while the paint was still wet I dropped in a second color - the red at the base. It actually looks quite ugly when you first do it, and you are sure you've ruined it, but when it dries it looks so cool! I made a bunch of cards this week using this idea of adding flowers over a gesso stamped background with watercolor washes, and found myself thinking of a couple friends that I had not thought of in quite awhile so I put cards in the mail to them for no reason at all, other than to say that I was thinking about them.

This brings to mind the beautiful card you gifted to me for my birthday.
Sorry I am unable to visit each and every post but I am struggling at the moment resulting in enforced time away from on-line activities.
Hope all is well with you. I am sure Nora is enjoying the summer days.
Wishes
Lynne
