#26: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

The Documented Life Project™ Week 26

June Theme: Travel Journaling

June 27 Art Challenge: Photos and Words

Journal Prompt: A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words

I'd say this picture is definitely worth a Thousand words!  Boca Grande, FL

I started with the idea of picking out a few favorite photos from our trip to Boca Grande for our 10th Wedding Anniversary. A number of small photos with some words -which was our Art Challenge for week 26, June 27th DLP. As I was printing out photos, I thought -why not use a large photo printed on brochure paper as a background?  I chose a photo of a sunset we saw on the beach after dinner one night. I added it to my journal and then wanted to add color to the white space. I chose soft pastels and smudged the colors I loosely drew, to blend them into the photo and fixed it with a matte sealer. 

Click on any photo for more detail . . . I liked the arrangement of the photos I had chosen but I wanted to add a border of some sort. I chose Brown Dye-Na-flow paint and applied it loosely with a Zen Brush. Then I used a small alphabet stamp set to add words to my pictures . . .
