LastMinuteLucie and the search for time

I recently came across a blog called Art to the 5th. and their Documented Life project through this lady’s blog

It chimed nicely with my February Challenge as it involves art journaling – decorating a diary or journal on a regular basis, following prompts on the site.

I am, of course, behind as they started at the beginning of the year, but I have so far done the cover (week one) and the Selfie (week 2)

My diary is from Rymans – I love the colour and it is A5 sized and a page a day as I usually write all my lists in it.

Week one was to photograph, paint, sketch or incorporate your front door.

Week 2 was ‘Selfie’. I really don’t photograph well, so I decided to paint an idealised portrait – this is how I look in my head….

I am not a scrapbooker, which means so far there have been no applied elements, but week three is adding a pocket using an old envelope, so perhaps I will find my inner collage artists for that as well as doing some drawing.

Check out the blog’s Gallery though, there are some amazing examples. I am inspired!
