Documented Life Week 4: Secret Message

Week 4 of the documented life project was a bit deeper. The gist of this week was to write a secret message and paint over all of it except for one word. I thought it would be a great time to practice some layering with my gelli plate.

For the first attempt I chose to leave the word “can” visible. After finishing most of this I decided I would scrap it and start over. (I didn’t end up doing that, as you can see – after ignoring it for 24 hours, it grew on me and it went in the journal with the second attempt on the back side.)

Second time through I left “destiny” as the visible word.  I joined the Documented Life project because I thought it would help me free up my mind. I thought the structured challenges would help me work through my art journal block and practicing being a bit more free with just adding more layers working through “mistakes”.
