Hello and Happy Friday Eveyone!!!!!
Today I will be sharing my planner layout for this week with you all. But before we get started, I want to first share with you all my monthly planner layout for February.
I decided for my monthly spread I would keep it pretty basic and plan around theme of love for Valentine’s Day. Nice, simple, short and sweet…simply put together with stickers and a little Washi Tape.
Now let’s get to this weeks planner layout!
I guess with all the playing I have been doing in my art journal lately, I decided to go with a slight art journal approach for my planner layout for the week.
As I looked at the blank pages in my planner I first decided to go with the smushed/paint splatter effect. So I grabbed my Tim Holt’s Distress Inks in Spun Sugar and Salty Ocean, some plastic packaging and my water spray bottle.
I inked up the acetate with the ink and sprayed it with water. I placed it down in my art journal first (so it wouldn’t be so wet when I placed it on my planner pages – this will also give me a background to work with later in my art journal) and then on my planner page and spread the ink out.
And this is how it all came together on my planner pages.
Next, I grabbed my Jane Davenport Matte Medium and Collage Papers. The collage papers are like napkins. I cut the images I wanted to use out. Since the collage sheets are 2-ply, I carefully pulled the backing off, and then placed the images where I felt they would look best on my layout, and then applied the matte medium on top.
The matte medium acts as a glue and dries clear.
I used the extra pieces of the collage sheet in my art journal for a spread to work on at a later date.
This should be something fun and interesting for later. LOL
Anyway, here is my full completed layout, before the pen. I used a regular ball point pen to write over the matte medium. Even though it’s not summer yet, this layout really makes me look forward to the warmer days ahead as well as the beautiful colors at sunset during that time of year.
Well, I hope you all enjoyed this planner layout! And until next time,
