My Documented Life Project 2015 - week 5

Week 4 has turned out to be my favorite so far!!! I LOVE under paper. "What's under paper?" you ask. Well, if you're messy like me when painting, you put down some type of paper to catch your blobs, sprays, drips, scrapes, and general run off so you don't get paint all over your great grandmother's desk. 

I participated in Lifebook in 2013 and 2014 and acquired several sheets of colorful under paper (that were often prettier than the piece I created). And now the lovely ladies of the DLP gave me the perfect opportunity to to put it to good use. 

So here's my week 4...

DLP week 5

I'm keeping it as simple in 2015 (which is proving difficult for the week 6 and 7 challenges). And I love how this turned out.

I simply took a sheet of my most colorful under paper and cut out a circle, a stem, 14 flower petals, and 2 leaves. I glued everything down with Liquitex Matte Medium (because it's the most matte adhesive I have) and put a coat on top for good measure. I did get some wrinkling, but it didn't bother me on this piece.

some of my favorite pens

I did a few doodles with a Pigma Micron 05 and my second favorite white pen, the Sakura gelly roll. (My absolute favorite is the Uni-ball Signo UM-153.)

And then I called it a day! See? Simple!

Thanks for looking! Have a sunny day!
