And from the blog for Life Documented 2017 HERE : Prompt: Use at least three marks on your page making them numerous times.
Technique: Adding the same marks over and over for impact and using a palette knife for added texture.My word for 2017 is SHINE - if you haven't visited before you can read how that came to be here, and you can see all my posts about my word of the year by clicking here. I decided that I would start this spread with the SHINE of gold paint. Next I used a palette knife for added texture. The extra shine from the iridescent paint is a bonus! LOVE that scrapey texture
add at least 3 marks numerous times. I think it's awesome to add similar marks in different sizes, and one of my favourite ways is with a stencil. I ♥ this tapa shape which I use often in my art - I've collected a few different sized stencils as well as a cool stamp and made my own freezer paper stencil :

the gratitude prompt to focus on this week.
Although my week started off with a head cold, I will be happier when I look back on these pages to remember that I attended a great jazz concert by Swamp City Big Band (my husband on trombone)
I really LOVE my new tattoo (more about that later)
I've photographed the finished spread so you can see the sheen of lovely gold pen adding even more SHINE to the page. I finished with some additional marks of white paint through dry wall tape, made even cooler because while doing it I picked up a bit of leftover paint which made the effect a bit grungier than just white.
