Documented Life Project
Last year the Art to the 5th Academy had art journal prompts each Saturday. I really enjoyed the prompts. You can view the past challenges here.

Art Challenge: Repeating Elements
Journal Prompt: It’s Worth Repeating
I chose the Journal Prompt: It’s Worth Repeating
Before I started this challenge I was completely stuck. I started about 4 journal pages that I didn’t like. Then I stumbled upon this fabulous blog called DaVida Nature Photgraphy and I was inspired to create the page above. You can also find more wonderful images by DaVida on Facebook here.
I normally reach for darker colors but I tried to capture the softness of the photographs from DaVida’s blog. I used the Bokeh Technique for the orange petals which you can find on the blog Create with Me. The Bokeh Technique helped create the soft look that I wanted. Then I covered the background with blue, purple, pink and white Dina Wakley paint. Finally, I added some repeating stamps and stencils all over the page. Thank you DaVida Nature Photography for helping me get my Mojo back!!
