Creative Project Planner
I told you yesterday, that I would share with you what I was working on.
Sorry to disappoint you...it isn't a new mini album like some of you had hoped for :(
But what it is, is a ....... I am not exactly sure what you would call it, lol.
I picked up this really pretty journal from Barnes and Nobel when we were down in the States a few months ago.
Not only was it pretty, it was also on clearance.
It is pretty big, 11.5"x9.5"
I don't want to alter it, as it is so pretty as it is.
Oh you want to know what I am doing with this, teehee.
I am planning on making it a creative project planner...hey thats a good name for it ;)
I am going to post the projects I want to make each month and decorate the pages.
I am thinking of also adding tabs for each month, depending on how many pages I do each month.
So far I have 3 pages back and front. Yes I have high hopes to get lots done this month ;)
I can't show my other pages as some of my projects are for some friends and I don't want them to know about them until they receive them.
Even though the paper is pretty thick, my inking seeped through to the back of the page, so I added pattern paper to the back of them. I like this for the added colour and I can use some of my older papers.
I wanted to try my hand at art journaling with all the gesso and such, but for this book I want to keep the pages flat. So I am just going to use my stamps and adhering some papers. But still keeping it pretty flat.
Onto My Day:
I kind of took it easy today. My knees were killing me today, actually the last couple days, but today was a day to take it easy.
Plus today was another freezing cold day...so a good day to stay indoors.
I worked a bit on organizing in my laundry room, you know since my girls stole my storage cabinet for that room yesterday, lol.
Actually now that I think of it....today was a very uneventful day for me.
My best friend's daughter got engaged today...Congrats Kaitlyn :)
I hope you have all had a creative Sunday :)
