Week 3 - Documented Life Project

❤ Here's my take on week 3 of the DLP art journaling challenge.

January Theme -The Blank Page and How to Face It! -January 17: Art Challenge: The Color Wheel. Journal Prompt: "I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way . . . “ Georgia O’Keeffe

I made my own crazy color wheel, sprinkled it with salt when the paint was quite wet. It made for some interesting patterns.

I started by writing about this week's challenge with  oil pastels as I knew they would resist any paint I added later. I am borrowing materials from the abstract art class I am taking . . . getting to know the materials better.

Below: after the salt was removed and the paint was spread to the other side of the page.

I wanted to be quite literal with the quote/prompt! I added shapes.

I struggled more this week as I was busier and not as excited about the prompt, but once I made myself jump in and start, I got some creative ideas that pleased me.

The fact that I was doing the prompt at all and sticking with my commitment made me feel a whole lot better. I can't wait to see what's in store for week 4 with The Original Documented Life Project.
