The front cover for this year’s planner/journal is finished. I’m again using a composition book with grid pages. This year I decided to try a painted collage for the cover.
The first layer looked something like this.
I collected scraps of paper with a variety of pattern and texture, mostly neutrals with a touch of brown and blue. Next a coat of gesso, light in some places, heavier in others.
Stickers and magazine clippings were added first. And then the doodling began with Pitt and gell pens.
And of course, I had to add a reference to yarns. 🙂
This was a new approach for me. I enjoyed trying new techniques and am pretty pleased with the result.
Just a peek inside. Pages are a mix of journaling (blurred in the photo), to-do lists, sketches and doodles, scrapping, whatever.
Do you keep a planner/agenda/journal? I find it keeps me focused and reminds me that each day is special, that simple things can be important and should be remembered.
Enjoy your day!
