Journal/Planner Re-design Inside pages Part 1
I really wanted to do something which was "realistic" for me given my time and interest so decided to turn this planner into a journaling/sketching book which can be carried with me at all times. This gives me the chance to sketch when I have time and the opportunity. Because this planner is so small, approximately 5"X7.5", I can carry it in my purse and it packs really well when I am gone for the day or even longer periods of time.
I cut down to size 90# watercolor paper, Bristol paper, and sketch paper, punched the holes in them and added them to the planner. For my dividers I decided to use some of my Gelli Prints, Washi tape and laminated them. In the photos above you can see that I used a variety of materials for the borders and included some scrap pieces of projects completed by some of my students. I decided that if the student didn't want the scrap material they would look great around my dividers and remind me of my students as long as I use these dividers. What a great way to re-purpose something which was going to be thrown away.
So far I am loving this planner. What do you think?
