Documented Life Project - the unPlanner - Week 13

Here we are at the very end of March - ok, it's actually April but this is the last week of March, so yeah.

It's been a fairly uneventful week other than my youngest being sick with a really bad ear infection which has taken all of my time.  I added lots of doodles and some Dylusions stamps to help fill in the gaps.

Because we're at the end of the month, I get to add my "What I Accomplished this Month" page!  It's been a pretty eventful month and I couldn't be happier with what I managed to get done.

I really haven't collected anything this month to go in my Monthly Pocket Picks so I opted to change that particular element to something a little different.

This "Noteworthy" pocket is from the pocket set I've been using all month.  I don't know who it's by, I only know I found it at Hobby Lobby - probably on clearance.  I added three of the DLP lists I printed on manila card stock to my pocket, punched a hole in the corner, added a painted reinforcer and a pretty ribbon.

The lists are "Loving This" - current favorite art supplies, "This Stuff" - my current top priority wish list, and a blank list I titled "Challenges" - current favorite artsy Challenges that I am participating in this year.

It's a pocket - they're picks.  I think it works!

This week's PAC challenge was "Celebrating White Space".  If you're familiar at all with my art work you will know that I am completely unable to leave white space at all.  I truly struggle with it!

I started with a sheet of bristol and stamped my small gelli plate randomly.  I then added some white back into my very colorful page.  I added dots of fluorescent pink using a foam texture plate.  I am loving using that texture plate!  It's one of a set a friend gave me and it is perfect!  After everything dried, I added scrapped a little black here and there and stamped the large ledger stamp here and there.  Once all of that was dry, I used White Linen Dylusions paint to stencil through my favorite Zinnia stencil.  I let that dry and did it a second time for more a more opaque white.

I found a jar of Glass Bead Glitter Gel on clearance at Michaels and had never used it before.  I figured it was white on a white base and would add some interesting texture.  I let that dry for several hours and then cut up that big beautiful sheet of yummy artsy goodness!  I'm getting so brave!  It was a struggle I admit.  I started to leave it as it was and use it for a divider but I was good and stuck with the plan!

I picked out four of my favorites and added a few word stickers.  Some are Tim Holtz Small Talk and the others are Tiny Text by Cosmo Cricket.

I took one of the Bo Bunny Page Protectors (the one with four ATC sized slots) and slipped in two pacs per pocket back to pack.  There was a little space left over so I decided to edge my page protector and fill in the remaining space around the PACs with strips of art paper by Crowabout Studio B.  I used my Photo Fuse tool to seal in all my bits.

I know it's kind of hard to see my PACs in the page protector so I've included a picture I unbelievably remembered to take before permanently putting them in their new home!  I think these are my favorite bits of art I've created all year!  And the awesome thing is I still have several more atc/pac sized pieces to use in something else.  Yay!

That was my March!  I hope you had a good one and I'll see you back here next week for April!

Until then,
