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 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!
