Repeating Elements: DLP Week 8

Week 8 of the Documented Life Project
February Theme Layers You Will Love!
February 21: week 8 Announced
Art Challenge:  Repeating Elements
Journal Prompt:  It's Worth Repeating

yes, I do love repeating images/colors in my work but I did not realize how much, until I did this exercise. And, I kind of had to force myself to start as it has been very busy, we've been sick with a virus and I am behind a bit on doing these challenges. . . . but when I did start, one thing led to another and I found myself just clicking along thinking about different ways to repeat what I was doing. I really enjoyed myself. 

I started with this leftover scrap of paper. After I had used this stencil in another project and it was covered with wet spray ink, I pressed it against the scrap paper instead of wasting the ink and then saved it. This was how I started my journal spread. 

Then look what happened! I used the stencil in different ways directly on my journal as well as covering the background area by spraying dyes or doing direct ink to paper. 

Then I started choosing individual parts of the stencil to add, in different areas. I used a gold or a white marker to add flowers one at a time. 

 It's Worth Repeating!!
