collaboration


this week, the documented life project challenge was to
ask someone to draw on your journal page, and then finish it.

to be honest, my first thought was "yikes!"…..
because i knew i'd have to hand over some of the control of my page,
and well, that's an entirely different kind of challenge!
so, i asked my little dutch sweetie to join me in the project,
and when i saw what a great page he had drawn,
i thought "double-yikes", because i didn't want to mess it up!





the first thing i added were some washi tapes that my dutch boy and our son
brought back from a recent trip to japan.
 i traced the shapes from the page, and cut them out of the washis.





then i added some color and other details to the page…..





and once i was finished…..and finally got over being a nervous wreck...
i was able to think of those "yikes" as "likes",
because it really was a lot of fun collaborating with
my very talented little dutch sweetie!

A wonderful double-act. You rock!! A fabulous page, you'll have to share some more pages. Calls for a special wv/lv journal, methinks :o)

What a fabulous page! I did not know your husband was equally talented! I love the washi tape stones. That was really creative. So many memories captured in that page. Well done!!

Debs M said...

well done to you both! x

Nicely done - both of you! I'll bet your dutch sweetie had a few 'yikes' moments, himself, when he was faced with a blank page in your journal.

I love this journal page!

Carol Harris said...

I love that you two worked on a piece together! I for some reason assumed your dutch sweetie wasn't artistic, I was wrong!! Thanks for showing how to use the Washi tape as part of the picture not just as a border.

Wow Elvie what a fantastic page - your Dutch Boy certainly has a flair for sketching and paired with your talent for skills with painting and ability to add touches of delightful detail, your collaboration page is gorgeous. What a wonderful souvenir to his trip to Japan Do you think that your Dutch Boy will be wanting to start his own Journal.
Warmest best wishes,
Susanne
