This year my dear friend  Anni  tempted me to take part in a project called 

In short ,-you choose a book or journal to fill with creations and thoughts,
after having been inspired by lots of small FREE videos ,to be seen
after being a member of the group ! It runns for the whole year, 
I`m sure many of you already knows this !!

This is my front page , made from wastes of all kind os papers,
which I added and then coloured ,and stenciled - I also used a little Bister.

I have some for me importent words added, and you can see I
also used some embossed pieces!

This is the first page -my January page ,again with remnants of this 
and that, and a calender for little things to remember.

I has been fun ,starting this ,and I hope to continue ,getting inspired from the four
very clever artists having made this forum, again this year.

I still have a few beautiful and special gifts to show you,next time,
but for now I wanted to show, my paper-works !
Today we had a wonderful sunny day, and my husbond and I enjoied a
beautiful walk !
I hope your sunday is beautiful too, and wishes you a great and creative
nnew week !

Hugs and love

What a beautiful start to the year's journey, Dorthe - both the cover and your January page are just beautiful. Lovely delicate ink and texture effects, and fascinating images and powerful words. I love them. Wishing you lots of joy on your Documented Life project, and a wonderful 2015!

Dorthe, I have heard of this but have never participated. I am glad that your dear friend persuaded you to participate. It is wonderful that you are trying something which is new to you and with fabulous results. You have created with beauty, the textures and the neutral colour palette and also the inclusion of words that have meaning for you.
I cannot wait for when you share your next page with us.
Dorthe, may creativity come to you in abundance this New Year.

I am familiar with Documented Life Project and did not participate last year. Then I felt sad because most of my friends actively did their journals. This year I thought I might join but I haven't begun yet. I LOVE your journal Dorthe Dear. It is so calming and beautiful...just like you my friend. Creative DLP Bliss...

Lululiz said...

This is wonderful, Dorthe! I am always so impressed by your ability to take on new things and make them work beautifully. You are so creative! I have to check this out, it sounds really fascinating.

Tehehehe, reminder - remember what you you were going to do in the new year..... xxx

Terri said...

Hello Dorthe,
Your Documented Life journal page is wonderful! I Love all the layers, and the vintage feel. I have wanted to do this too, maybe next year.
I look forward to seeing more pages!
So glad you had a good sunny day for a nice walk : )

Sylvia/LittleTreasures said...

Oh Dorthe, this is truly lovely. So many fun layers and Your page is a great start. I was thinking...maybe I should do one Month by month and it would be a good finish to use the bits and pieces for my Christmas letter. You always have great inspiration. Enjoy the week.

Jayne said...

What a lovely project to be involved in Dorthe, I look forward to seeing your journal develop. We had a beautiful Sunday here in the north east too, very chilly with thick frost but bright.

Hello Sweet friend,
Oh this new journal looks and sounds so right for you to venture into a new project. I love the soft textural feel of the cover and your first January pages! Isn't it fun to try spreading our wings? The book is totally "you"! I also had not heard about the project but will definitely check it out.
Enjoy your new journey, have fun and may the New Year bring you many new and little blessings as you so deserve them, as well as many more lovely walks in nature with your loved one!
Much love,

Lovely to see the beginning of your beautiful new book project dear Dorthe ♥
I will look forward to seeing it as it blossoms and grows for you this year.
There seem to be quite a few people doing this Documented Life Project.
Warm hugs from cold and snowy Virginia my friend.

Hello Dorthe and Happy New Year to you!! You have already started your year in very creative fashion with becoming a part of the Documented Life Project :) That's a wonderful creative commitment (dare I say resolution?) that you've made for yourself for the year :) With the beginnings of your DLP journal, I'd say you've started off beautifully :) I can't wait to see this journal transform with all of your ideas and thoughts :)

Mom E. said...

So beautiful, Dorthe!
This kind of book would make a wonderful gift, I am thinking about my sister specifically! I feel inspired! I have her name for Christmas in 2015 and this would be a gift she would love and enjoy. Thanks so much for sharing it with us!

Celestina Marie said...

Dear Dorthe, your project is off to a beautiful start. Your cover and first page are amazing. It will be a fun year to work on this and create something so very special.
Thank you for sharing and always inspiring me with your talents.
Have a great week.
