The Documented Life Project Week 2

Hello there.  I am just loving joining in with The Documented Life Project so far.  Here is the link to their blog Art from the 5th if you want to have a look.

The prompt for last week was to take a "selfie" Oh how I hate that word lol and my daughter says I am too old to be using it lol.  Stangely I had just used a selfie I took for my layout for my teams challenge on UKS so I printed it out smaller painted up the background for my tip in page incorporating some pages from the A to Z with where I live and some washi tape,  a border and some doodling, rub-ons and journalling and it was done.

For the other side of the tip in page  I layered up the same paint colours, stencilled through some punchinella and put on an image of some rocks balanced on each other.  I am using this one for the One Little Word I have chosen for this year which is "balance".  After a tumultuous few years I have decided to have some peace in my life I need to achieve some balance so that is my aim for this year.

I have temporarily misplaced my neocolours but when I find them I will be using them to give a wash of colour to the plain cream diary and planner pages which I haven't shown in these pictures

The prompt for Week 3 is to incorporate an envelope from your mail as your tip in- this should be interesting so I will need to have a think about that one


  1. Beautiful pages Suzy. Your photos are lovely.

  2. Love the backgrounds on the pages. The Balance photo is perfect :)

  3. It's beautiful Suzy. I really love the way you have chosen to illustrate your word. Mine is 'organisation' but so far I am just looking at the chaos in my shed in despair :D
