The Documented Life Week 34: Numbers

I told you I've been dabbling in the art of Mixed Media, and I just recently made a Art Journal/Planner that posted about the other day.  I'm sure I won't be brave enough to share all of my pages, but this is the first one I did from a Documented Life Project challenge.  We were to fill our page with numbers that related to our week.  I was actually able to go in numerical order with mine.  I didn't go too crazy with the Mixed Media bit obviously, but hey, I'm just starting out here.  I did, however, use my Distress Inks to create this fun background on my watercolor paper.  I used some stickers from my stash and doodled around just a bit.

I'm truly using this planner as a way to keep track of my week, but also as a journal, which has proven to be so fun.  I took it to church and wrote down the sermon notes.  For me, I tend to pay more attention when I'm doodling for whatever reason.  I don't get mad at my kids anymore when I see them doing it, because I know they get it from me.  I'm not the best doodler, because I suppressed it for so long. . .good students don't doodle, they pay attention.  Being a homeschool mom for going on 8 years has taught me that doing things outside of the norm is absolutely okay, especially if it gives you great results.
