The Documented Life Project.

Finally I've got the latest art journal page ready to show you. Hopefully I won't be so late with the next one.

March Theme
Making Your Mark (Doodles & Mark Making)
March 14
Art Challenge:  Borders
Journal Prompt:  "Borderline feels like I'm going to lose my mind."

So originally because of the journal prompt I was thinking crazy, coo-coo and it made me think of a funky looking bird so I doodled one and then for the border I wrote out the entire journal prompt around the page with swirls and very loose letters.


I hated it and it sat while I did some more thinking. I had absolutely no ideas whatsoever so I covered it lightly with gesso and went from there. The quirky bird was totally hidden when I was done and I had background and border I could live with but still had no clues.


I finally went in search of a quote  and found one that I liked. Then I called it done.

Now I need to get started on the next challenge page.

Yet the bird is still under that creation. That was my thought anyway. I love this and the colors are awesome.

Have a fabulous day. My best to Gibbs. ♥♥♥

Love that quote! Far too often I've had enough! :) You're making me want to journal as soon as tax season is over!

Well, I sure like that quote. I've had to "give up" on a few things in my life, and it doesn't feel good, but to NEVER quit may not always make sense.
