Put a Bird On It

Have you heard of The Documented Life Project? It was started by these 5 amazing, creative women. Basically, if you have a planner and want to do some art journaling guided by fun weekly challenges, you're in! My hope is to have an amazing year of organization, inspiration and community. And when I say community, we're talking 5,800+ online members! It's never too late to join and it's free. 

Below is my finished Week 11 Challenge: Draw/Photograph/Collage a Bird Onto Your Page.


I started with a wet-into-wet watercolor background with two of my favorite icons/imagery---moon and birds.

I didn't know whether to turn these feathered friends into bluebirds, swallows, or purple martins. In the end, I think the painting embodied all of them!

I thanked Heidi Swapp on Instagram the other day for her Buzz Word Stickers. Love, love, love them in my art journaling.

Thanks for visiting!
