Documented Life Project - Week 4

The brief for the DLP week 4 is Writing/Words With Friends.

I kept my pages simple this week.

I decided to do a secret letter to all the friends I've had since I can remember.

I started by covering the two pages with my letter and then painting gesso over it. You can see from the photo that the words still show through, some of the words can also be seen through the tissue wrap.

I covered the pages with tissue wrap and added the calendar page and some hand written friendship quotes.
I coloured the pages with Distress inks and sprayed water over them, when they had dried I coloured the butterflies with Inktense pencils and a water brush.
I used my finger to add some black soot distress ink on the edges.
I was going to stamp some butterflies, colour them and cut them out to add to the pages but then decided not to.

Here is a close up showing the water drops.

I'm entering my pages into the Country View Challenges the theme for their challenge this month is Drips and Drops.
