#DLP {storytelling}

the end of 2015 is quickly coming to a finish and Documented Life is ending their year with the prompt of storytelling this week.

before i had gone to the studio yesterday i had read partway through Orly Avineri's book "In my Bones." this book gives an intimate look into one of her art journals with some dialogue and thought provoking words. one paragraph talked about "primal" painting and not really having a plan before hand, which totally spoke to me yesterday.

as i was creating this journal page, i was not over thinking anything and actually grabbing and using some colors that i may not have always reached for when working and putting colors together.

but, i did take the time to make sure to add my storytelling throughout my page. i had gesso'd and put down some collage papers down first along with some initial color before writing; but, was sure to put my story down onto paper.

along with some pencil doodles. 

i love the texture that my collage papers added to this page.

happy monday. what is your story?


  1. I absolutely love this!!! Just love the colors, texture, everything about it! Thanks for sharing.

  2. Thank you so much! This was wonderful to read and I just love your use of colour. Orly Avineri is my hero.


thanks for your comments- i love hearing from you!!
