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.

Life Documented week 14

Hello my friends! This week is going on a hurry!!! I want to do so much things that I commit with, and the time flows!! I'm at the final of 39 weeks, and the anxiety is starting to take care of me!! But  in the meantime I'm continuing to do my art!! I'm still documenting my weeks on my unplanner. 
This week the prompt came from Rebecca Janousek with a collage of drippy flowers. 
This week I made also the planner divider for April, and it seams that my brain choose the yellow for this month!! :) Yellow remembers me always Easter. I don't know why!! So is that why my pages this week are focused on yellow i think!
I will share tomorrow a little tutorial on how I made this artjournal page and these flowers. So stay tuned.

Life Documenting - Art Journal Vol. 2

My first Art Journal for Life Documented has finished so I made another one, with more pages so i can document during more months.
This is my first art journal. Is totally yammy and fat with happy colors, so many memories!! :)

In this second journal I use one paper bag that I painted last year and was hanging on my wall during a long time.
But now I wanted to use it for another thing. So i thought on use it for the cover of my Journal. I created the cover with card stock from cereal boxes and stitched three signatures of white paper. Loved the result.

Life Documented - week 13

Hi  guys! Today I want to show you how I put all together on my art journal for Life Documented week 13. I like to make an art journal page and another page to document. But this week I had a little more to document because I had a swap with an Instagram friend, so I wanted to put some of the stuff i received. So I made a fold page in which  I documented and put my Tag.
As you know I use lots of color, marks, stitches, tapes that I make and stickers. I really love the result.

Life Documented - week 13 Art Journal page

Hello my friends!!! This is my art journal page for this week Life Documented. This week Kristie thought on salvage words and rainbows, so I created a page full of color, full of rainbows and with words. I created a page with my worlds, I think. :) Color, flowers, lots of doodles, lots of marks. I think is me there in this page!!
In this page I use a background of acrylic paint first. Then I use as focal point a strip of paper from an old dictionary and four stickers that I made. (If you are interested I can make a post latter with my process for these stickers). After that is pure fun, because I gather some marks and oil pastels and make marks, and doodles and scribbled some words. 

I loved the result. Hope you can get some inspiration from my page. 

In the blank page I will do the page for documenting my week. :) 

Want to know more about this project? Take a look here

Have fun creating!!

Life Documented - Week 13 Tag

This week on Life Documented the prompt was suggested by Kristi (aka @soul-positive). She suggested us to create a Tag and use found words.
I did mine with a background of acrylic paint and collage paper from an old dictionary. Then I use the words "amour" and "bébé" from an old French/Portuguese dictionary. I add doodles and marks and stitches on my tag. At the end I stitch a beautiful embellishment that I make. I loved to do it. Now I'm working in the rest of spread for the week on my journal.
