The Documented Life Project - Week 31

Welcome to week 31 of The Documented Life Project !

July 26 - Create a Pocket - Fill it with Treasure from Your Week.

I liked this challenge because I am hooked on pockets of any kind!  I love tucking things away. I used a shipping tag for my pocket and opted to skip a tip in for the week, adhering my pocket directly to the page instead. I created a two page layout similar to an art journal page, giving myself a bright and colorful background to work with.

I used the Gelli Plate and a stencil to create a base on my shipping tag. Next I just added color with some paint, a stamp and some free motion stitching. I did not stitch my tag right to the page, as the paper in the Moleskine is so lightweight. Instead I added stitching first to the tag, then adhered the tag to the page using a heavy duty two sided tape. I will add notes to a card like this one and a few little tidbits from my week as I collect them. Hand Dyed Ribbon adds a great pop of color to both the tag pocket and the note card!
