Week 4 - Words With Friends...

Week 4 of The Documented Life project 
(more info about TDL project HERE)

Challenge: Writing
 Prompt: Words With Friend

 I took a simple approach to this challenge in an effort to get the page done.  
Falling behind already -- don't over think it!
It wasn't a positive, uplifting reflection on the prompt, but a reminder that 
friendship grows and deepens with communication, understanding and 
acceptance of our imperfections.

Spilling onto the blank page I journaled with permanent marker on unprepared watercolor paper. I added bits of white, heavy bodied paint all Wabi-Sabi style over the page so some of the journaling was exposed. I chose three colors for the background, mixed with glazing medium and rubbed paint over the words and white paint with my fingers. I love how the color became more intense where it absorbed into the paper in the background and lighter over the white glossy paint. I drew some random circles with my stabillo pencil and water. Filled the circles with the red and yellow from the background and a little gesso. Typed and printed the words "Words With Friends Are Not Always Easy," added more red and yellow paint to help them blend into the circles and glued down with glue stick. I outlined the words with stabillo pencil again to help them stand out.
