My Documented Life: Week 18

The prompt for Week 18 was to use a quote that would inspire you for the week. I struggled with this one, and didn't feel like my lettering worked out right on the quote. I used some gelatos for the background and couldn't find a pen to write over it. So I got a paint brush with some black India ink and just wrote...in my own handwriting. Nothing fancy. It certainly doesn't look like I had wanted it to.

I think the thing I love about this project is that I can experiment with different tools and mediums and learn from whatever happens on the page. It's part of the fun.

Sometimes I look at a page later and decide to add more like I did with this quote page. I found a black border sticker and added it to the empty space at the top of the page. I think it looks a bit better now.

Here are my planner pages and inside spread. I rather like the busyness of them.



Yes, I digitally scribbled over part of my journaling for privacy purposes. :)

Happy Monday! Have a great week!

    1. Well, Stephanie, I must confess that it is more of a diary than a planner! I'm just documenting my life in a fun way. The thought of my grandkids finding them after I am gone from this world makes me smile. :)
