Day Designer Planner for Work!

Hey Everybody! I am sure you have probably noticed that I have been absent from my blog for the past four months or so. It is for a GOOD REASON. If you follow me on Instagram and/or Facebook, you probably already know that I have been invited to serve as the Director of the children's program at church, FULL-TIME! YAY GOD! I am humbled that God has given me such an awesome opportunity to build into the lives of the next generation of kids who want to live RADICALLY for Christ.

With that being said, I am using the Day Designer (Bluesky Planner version by Target) to keep me focused & fruitful in my new role. Today, I thought I would share some of the layouts that I have posted on other social media platforms. When planning, I typically use journal cards, DIY planner stickers, super colorful Post It notes & of course, my favorite Studio L2E planner stamps. It all looks SUPER YUMMY on my CRAZY, graffiti style backdrops! Anyways, I hope you like!














Love ya much!

Documented Life Project August 29 (Week #35)!

Here is this week's DLP art challenge & journal prompt: 

August Theme
Faces, the Human Form & Characters
August 29
Art Challenge: Self Portrait
Journal Prompt: Mirror, Mirror


Hey guys! This month's "faces" theme....SERIOUSLY....I have "no words". I can truly say that I have gained MUCH practice when it comes to drawing human faces. However, I don't even think I scratched the surface on mastering the art of capturing the details of the most visible part of our body. 

For the final "faces" test for the month of August, we were challenged with drawing a "self portrait". EEEEKKKKKK!!!! I TOTALLY had to switch things up a bit based upon the "mirror, mirror" journal prompt. It is my heart's desire to reflect my Lord & Savior in all that I say & do because He alone has truly given me 'beauty for ashes' in my life. So, for my mixed media art journal layout, I decided to reflect half of a face that represents me and the other half that expresses the desire of my heart.

Here is what my final layout looks like:
DLP August 29 (Week #35)

My Art Journaling Process 

1. First, I created mixed media stickers on Avery shipping labels using Golden & Dylusions acrylic paint.


2. I sketched a face with an artist-grade pencil & painted it with Dylusions Spray Ink.

3. Next, I cut bits of my mixed media stickers to embellish my background.



4. Finally, I added my "May I Reflect You" sentiment in graffiti lettering & week number using alpha stickers by October Afternoon. 



(NOTE: The week # should be 35 instead of 34. SORRY!! ;D)

 And, the final layout:




Let me know if you have any questions. Hope this was helpful!

Much love & enjoy the rest of your week,

Documented Life Project August 22 (Week #34)!

Here is this week's DLP art challenge & journal prompt: 

August Theme
Faces, the Human Form & Characters
August 22

Art Challenge: Layers (Using Multiple Mediums)
Journal Prompt: Speak to your younger self- 
what advice would you offer?


I am super excited that I am getting caught up on all of my DLP challenges. WHOO-HOO! This week's "layers/mediums" challenges was super fun. I was able to incorporate the following mediums in my layout:
Spray inks
Gesso
Tombow Markers
Acrylic Paint
Archival Ink

To tone down all of the color in my background, I decided to simply outline my face with black acrylic paint and filled in slightly with white paint & flesh tone Tombow markers. My "FEAR NOT" sentiment speaks to all the precious time & energy I wasted in the past worrying about people & things that were out of my control. I choose FAITH today!
