Documented Life Project 2016: January Week 3

I filmed my second video in my Documented Life Project for week 3 of January.  Even though I’m running a little bit behind with the weekly prompts, I’m keeping the “unplanner” part up to date.  I’m not using the book as a planner but rather as a place to journal little bits about what’s happening on specific days.  Some days stay empty and I try to fill those with magazine images to take up the white space.

This page uses a few collage elements such as book pages, a magazine image, die cut flowers and a “quote”.  I enjoy watching other collage artists on YouTube and I wanted to practice putting together a page using pictures from magazines.  Sometimes it takes the pressure off to combine other people’s images than to create them yourself.

Supplies are listed below as well as some photos of the finished page.  Thanks for watching and please subscribe to my channel if you haven’t already done so!

  1. I love love your pages! I am the exact same way. Not always keeping up with everything but using the calendar and writing a little about each day. Also playing with the white space. Are you on Instagram? There are a lot of art styles on there and there are some people doing gluebook party which is collage. I also love the marks stamps you used and have never seen them!
