MY WORD FOR 2015
I was inspired to choose 'ACTION' as my OneWord365 for 2015. I decided to do an art journal page for it and before I got started on it I found this site called Art to the 5th Academy. They have a challenge called The Documented Life Project. I decided that this would be perfect for my 'ACTION' page. The challenge was to use book pages in your creation. I have a book I had picked up at the thrift store that I have been using for pages in my journal art and it was ironic that as I went to tear out some pages the headings on the chapters jumped out at me as being perfect for my page.
Here is how my page started -
Next I trimmed everything off neatly to the size of the page.
I then colored over the background pages using Distress Stains. I used Distress Inks over each of the individual thoughts I wanted to add and collaged them on top.
I then coated the whole page with a layer of Mod Podge to seal it.
Now to add my 'word'. I went to my collection of letters and chose a nice sized font that would fit on top without covering any of the important parts.
Then, I covered them with black Enamel Accents.
Finally, when I woke up this morning they were dry and I added them to complete the piece!
I hope you have enjoyed the steps of my creation and I hope that I will do well taking 'ACTION' on all of these thoughts this year!
