The Documented Life Project - The UnPlanner: #Week4

Time flyes!!! Here we are in week 4 of  "The Documented Life Project" and in the end of January!!!! These are my pages for this week!! 

This week I was experimenting new things! colors, techniques and continuing training my sketching skills!! 

I was totally inspired on Alisa Burke announce of her next lesson "paint with your fingers", and this week I tried that!! Painted some backgrounds and then doodled . 
I gathered all that papers, and most favorite photos and played with my UnPlanner!!! :) This is pure fun!!!

My PAC was made with the leftover parts from the other pages! I continuing to explore my skills and experimenting with the materials!!! Liked so much the result!

With my doodled flowers on a finger painted background I made a pocket for a favorite photo! A weird selfie of me and my hubby! !It's weird but I like her!!
Stitched my finger painted mandala!

This week I was still training my sketching skills! So my recipe for this week was to make a sketch from one of my lunches these days!!!
In this page I use a plastic paper protector that I cut and stitch! (another experience and something new to try!! :) )

In the last page I had a beautiful draw that my boy made with oil paint!! I absolutely love this and I had to record that moment!!!

easy and fun masks for carnival

We are nearing the Carnival and it is time to think of disguises and have fun with the children to create carnival masks!
Today I leave you an idea of funny masks that we did last year and I had even been published on my other blog: "Mario and Omelete". But we enjoyed so much this activity and I think that is so current and can be an inspiration for someone else that i dicided to publish again! 
Estamos a chegar ao Carnaval e está na altura de pensar em disfarces e em nos divertirmos com as crianças a criar máscaras de carnaval!

Hoje deixo-vos uma brincadeira que fizemos no ano passado e que eu até já tinha publicado no meu outro blog: "Mário e Omelete", Mas como gostei tanto da atividade e acho que está tão atual e pode servir de inpiração para mais alguém, aqui fica de novo o nosso processo!

Francisco paintings

 Kids can always surprise us!!! My boy is not to much for drawings or paintings. But sometimes, when he watches us (me and my hubby) drawing or painting he want's to do too!!!
These days my husband was painting with oil painting and Francisco asked for a brush and a palette with some oil paint. We made little squares of canvas and he painted some pieces that he find  near him!! Even his Teddy bear friend he drew!!

Wauuuu!!! He made wonderful drawings!! We always get surprised with this kid!!

ART Card - my process!

Today I want to share with you a little bit of my process on the making of a little Art Card from my Planner. This little art cards are, as the name suggests, little bits of art that you can add as embellishments to your art journals, planners or offer as a gift tag for instance. 
As they are little pieces you can make them in few minutes. They are great for you to make art every day even if you don't have much time for that.

 I started with a page where I add some scrap paint from cleaning the brushes from other projects!!

Add some strips of magazines and newspaper.

 Add some stokes of white and doodled a flower! I stamped some flowers in the corner and added some collages with leftover papers! (I collect almost  every bits of paper that left from other projects! They fit great in this little pieces of art don't you think? :))The important is to create texture and beautiful fused layers!!!

You can write some words, or quotes that inspires you.
For the final touches I add some stitches which i love and a little strip of ribbon.

Hope you feel inspired to create. Is a little art card. You can make it in 10 min!! This is an artful therapy!!

Have fun!! Be inspired!!

The Docummented Life Project 2016 - The UnPlanner #Week3

We come to the third week of The Documented Life 2016The UnPlanner 
I wanted this week record some of what inspires me and suggest to all of you to be  inspired. Needless to great things, simple pleasures, small moments, a beautiful nature walk, the ones that we love. After read the prompt and this week work of Rae Missigman I knew that I had to record that on my UnPlanner this week. And that bring me for my word - be inspired (and I'm so grateful for that I have near me what really inspires me) 
This week, my process was, caught on a sheet of paper where I had already some scrap paint and then create my "PAC" and my "List ten". I added strips of magazines and newspapers and joined some of the things that inspires me.

I'm really amazed with this project. I'm surprising myself with creativity. It's been for me like a lab where i can play with all my supplies. 

I read on the facebook group that some girls are feeling lost. Please try again. Dont give up!
My process is: I first read the prompts and the ideas of the creators. I know that i have to create a list, a PAC and document my week. that's all. After that i really do what I want. In my point of view, we have to be ourselves. Take our print in our unplanner. So make just art, document your days, and that's it!!! Have fun!

My Unplanner is getting gorgeous (for me of course). I'm making things that I would not do if i wasn't doing this kind of Planner. So thank you so much for the weekly prompts and the big support on the beautiful facebook group!! :)

Chegamos à semana 3 do projeto - The Documented Life Project 2016- The UnPlanner!. Esta semana queria registar um pouco do que me inspira e sugerir a todos que se sintam inspirados. Não é preciso grandes coisas, o que nos rodeia, simples prazeres, pequenos momentos, um belo passeio pela natureza. 

O meu processo esta semana foi pegar numa folha onde já tinha alguma tinta e a partir daí criar o meu "PAC" e a minha "List ten". Adicionei tiras de revistas e jornais e juntei algumas das coisas que me inspiram.

The Docummented Life Project -The Unplanner is a year long almost free class (what you pay don't pay what you receive from that wonderful people!!) where you are invited to play with your art materials and document your weeks. We receive weekly prompts and challenges with videos and peeks.
