The Documented Life Project - Featured Artist

Featured Artist

I'm honored to be this week's featured artist for Art to the 5th's the Documented Life Project 2015.

 

This weeks challenge is using ephemera: old maps, letters, tickets and more and the prompt is Life…with a history and it goes along perfectly with what's happening in my life this week...we're at the Lincoln Family Reunion! For those of you that don't know me in real life, my maiden name is Lincoln and I share an ancestor with Abraham Lincoln.

I created THIS VIDEO of the whole process I used to do these art journal pages:

 

 

 

The main steps I did were...

1. Use spray ink and stencils for the background.

2. Create my own Abraham Lincoln stencil using my ScanNCut & used it on my page.
