Life Documented Week 19

Hello my friends!! It's been a wonderful time with my sweet little baby but time flies and I haven't as much time as I desired to post and photograph what I have been doing. I still do art almost everyday even if it is a small art card, but adding shuts and posting has been more difficult to me lately. So sorry for that.
Well today I want to share my week 20 for Life Documented. I'm still in the first weeks of May d at this time I received my mail from Amy Webster for our swap of found words. She send me  so inspiring words that I created some art with them, and I'm still doing. I think I get addicted to put words on my work now!!
In this week I decided to make a pocket with four containers to gather all the mail that Amy send to me and to put the cards that I made with the words and a beautiful tag that she offer me from the talented Kristi from Soul Positive.

If you follow my work you might know that I love to use brown paper bags to do at. So I used one to make this pocket. In the other side of the pocket I made some art and add another word from Amy.

This is the pocket in my art journal and the page for documented my week. I use things on the envelope of Amy to decorate my page and made some collage paper for the stickers days using the prompt from Rebecca.

Have a beautiful day!

Coffee filter flowers

Hello creatives!! Few days before my baby born I posted this page of my life documented journal and I said that I would post next day the tutorial for this flowers. But then my baby born and I had no longer the time to do that. So today I want to share with you finally how I do this beautiful coffee filter flowers.

I like to use kids markers and watercolors to add color to the coffee filters.
Paint on the coffe filters with the markers. Then spray water to de paint and the paint starts to spread and blend and that makes beautiful combinations and efects.

You can do the same with watercolors.

After it drys I draw flowers and cut them. Vary the shapes and form of them.
You can do a bunch of them and them have prepared when you need to embellish some pages

Found Words

In Life Documented we make swaps with in the group. It was called "found words". It was an idea from the talented and inspiring Kristi from Soul_positive, and was supposed to swap words or phrases from books or magazines and then make art with that words. I receive a wonderful envelope from Amy full of inspiring words which I'm using on mi ATC's and Life documented journal.
I send to Amy a package with Portuguese words for her to make art with.
Here are what I've been doing with my words.

Scrap paper tags

Today I want to give you an idea of different tags. Happy colors scrap paper tags. We all have an amount of scrap papers. And  if you are like me you save even the smallest scrap that is on your table. So i gather some of that papers, the most colored ones and made tags with them.

Collage or staple to a tag scraps of paper, with different sizes, and shapes. You can add some words to that papers. You can add embellishments like feathers or butterflies.
You can scribble or add some marks to the tag.
Be creative. Add what you have on your scraps. be colorful and not predictable
 with the combinations. I like that. 

you can add some stitches to give more texture.

I like to do this from time to time, so i have a collection of tags waiting for some journaling. When I'm doing my journals I can use them.
