DLP April PACs


I've been having a great time making these PACs (Pocket Art Cards) in The Documented Life Project 2016. This one was for the prompt "Make a pocket and fill it."


Lots of my gelli prints are in this little project. I made the pocket out of a gelli printed paper. Used a piece of gelli printed paper for the background of the card and the flower.  Inspired by Roben-Marie, Sandi Keene and Anna Freisen, I drew the flower on top of a gelli print and doodled on it with a stabilo pencil and paint pens, then cut it out and glued it to the card.



This one is "Fill your card with numbers." Again I started with a gelli printed background, then added layers of paint and scribbled numbers.  I drew a flower on some book paper and collaged it to the card.




Next up is "Use a color you usually avoid."  For me purple is one of those colors that I find I don't use often. I started with a teal gelli print and added the purple with paint and colored pencil as well as markers.  Reminds me of the '90s when teal and purple was sort of a stylish color combo.



This one is "Black and white."  I started this one with graph paper glued to the card then doodled with black markers and paint pens. I love color so much that it's hard for me to leave black and white alone!  ;)



This was a fun one. "Add a face."  Another gelli print for the background, then some fun with paint, pencils, and pens.


Are you participating in DLP 2016? Have you played along in years past? It's a fun project and all the artists are so inspiring!

Hope you have a creative weekend!

  11. Hi Laney, I love your cards and guess which is my favorite!?...the purple and teal with hearts! I also admire all the gelli prints you must have. I only have a few that I did in a class one time, so will have to relearn some of the methods. Thanks for visiting my blog. Have a good week.
