Documented Life 2015 First Prompt

As I said in my previous post, my word for the year is going to be “completion”. I’ve picked this word because I have many project started and have not completed. So this year is about getting those done and also completing goals I have for my self.

On to the Prompt for this week which was released yesterday Jan 1 2015. They said to use book text, your word, and some goals. So this is what I have come up with (NOTE: Clicking on the individual picture will bring up a full resolution image where you can see more details and zoom in even more)

First I put down some acrylic paint. I chose Ocean green and Parchment as my main colors and added a little Bright aqua green here and there and around the edge.

Since I have about a gazillion letter stickers of every type imaginable I chose to use some of those to show my word for the year. I conveniently had some with book text on them. I laid them out on the page where I thought I would like them but not attaching them yet.

Trying to use more of my stash items I found these frame cut out stickers from who knows where lol and they also had some book text on them. I thought it would look nice to make them into a type of pocket so I could insert the shipping tags. Being they were a frame the tags fell out through the hole so I solved that problem by added a piece of polka-dot velum.

And here is the finished layout. Since the tags and pockets needed a little extra something I added some washi tape to the tag. Additionally I used some glitter number stickers to label the pockets. Tied the strings on the tags like a pair of shoes and Voila! On the back of the tags I wrote some things I need to complete this year. I also went over the edge of the pages with some Tim Holtz black soot Distress ink.

Here you can see the book text on the letters and the frames, along with the bit of shadow around the frames I created using a Big brush Pitt pen and smudging it. A tip I learned from Vicky Papaioannou on Youtube.
