2014 The Documented Life Project

I'm excited to share my weekly planner for the new year... I started out with a Moleskine Weekly Planner, I then went through my stash of paper/art journals and found some mixed media paper... I then cut down the pieces of paper to fit inside the planner... I packed a bag full of washi tape, the papers, and my planner for Christmas vacation... Whenever I had a bit of free time on vacation, I taped in the papers... I just ran a strip of washi on the outside and inside seams and folded them in... My dear friend Jamie came up with an idea to decorate the inside of the album with more washi tape, so I did that too. When I got home, I printed out a sheet of pretty paper by Studio Tangie, I added a sheet of clear contact paper on top and then sent it through my Silhouette Portrait to cut the tabs out. I stamped the months with Stazon ink and sent them through my Xyron to adhere them to the top... As most of you know, I like to alter my album covers... so after a coat of gesso, I went to town, using thin layers of cheap acrylic paints I had on hand...some stamps, some stencils, and some Thickers later... I added a good amount of Mod Podge to hold it all together... I'm seriously in LOVE with how this turned out and am excited to share...
