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.

Life Documented week 16

Hi friends!! Has been a wile since my last post here! The reason is that my little baby has born on 10 April, so this past month was almost taking care of this little angel. She is so sweet that my heart is totally melted! I have another son. He has 10 yeas, so being a mum after 10 years has been so beautiful and different. I'm now more calm and confident than I was ten years ago, and i'm fruiting this little girl every moment that I can. I'm loving! Today we celebrate one month with Constança.

But, has I'm in love with this little being and I'm loving taking care of her, I need from the bottom of my soul to do my art. Is so important for me guys. I think you understand me!! So every few minutes that I have, when my baby is sleeping and my oldest is at school, I'm still trying to continue with the challenges that I started this year.

I've been putting my weeks of Life Documented in day.
Today I want to share with you week 16.
This week prompt was add photos to your spread.
I made a spread with a photo of my two lovelies as a focal point and made a pocket to collect more photos and a scrap paper tag.
I put the photos on a pocket made from a little white paper bag that I saved. After sewing the paper bag I get two  little pockets. One for photos and another for the tag. I really loved the result.
About the scrap paper tags I will talk of them later in another post.
