The Documented Life Project

I was invited last year to be a featured guest artist in The Documented Life Project and now it’s finally time for my post!

The month’s theme is Storytelling Within the Written Word.

The art challenge for this week is Hidden Journaling and the prompt is The greatest gift I can give myself...

I was instructed that I could interpret the prompt, challenge, and theme any way I wanted.

The video below doesn’t include any voice over from me as I’ve been dealing with an icky cold. What it does include is my process on this spread. Watch it develop from beginning to end!
