Hey there! Did you have a productive weekend? I feel like we really did. We were finally able to empty the last of the boxes, and my craft studio is pretty much how I want it. It could use some better organization of some of my stash, but at least it's all out of boxes and within arms reach. Now to find what I need when I need it ;)
I also had an opportunity to work on a project that I've been excited about for quite a while. I've been dabbling in Mixed Media for a little bit now; building up my stash, and working with and playing with it. It's a fun thing to do, and a thing that will take lots of time to master. I've watched lots of videos and played quite a bit. Lots of things I've made I hate and a few things I love. This planner goes in the 'things I love' category.
I love reading Patter's blog
, which is where I originally learned about the planner. I took Lorraine Bell's Plan.Journal.Play class
, and am so excited by what I feel I learned. I definitely have a lot to learn, and and certainly used a lot of her techniques, but the more I play, the more I will learn and develop my own style.
I really love how my tabs turned out. I used some canvas paper along with an old labeler. The planner is a Moleskine, and I used an old stamp from one of my past favorite companies (Clear Dollar Stamps).
The back is even pretty cool. More than anything, I had fun making it. So much so, that I want to make more, hehe. The inside is just as cool, and I'll show a page in the next couple of days.
Stamps: John 3:16 (CDS)
Accessories: Moleskine planner, various acrylic paints, brick stencil from TCP, dots stencil from Tim Holtz, gesso, various pens, various ink misters
Thanks for stopping in!
