This week the weather has been really beautiful! Again I’m going to show you both my planner week and my journal week. We’ve been out and about a lot, having 2 days off at the beginning of the week so I’ve done a lot more to write about.
It’s funny though, since I started a journal I’ve been doing more with my life because I realised how boring and uneventful it was before. We’ve been out with friends a lot more, that may just be because of the nice weather. Not sure what the reason is, but it’s nice to go out.
My Planner Week
This week I decided to use some leftover scrapbooking paper to decorate my pages. I like using washi tape, but I only have about five or six rolls and have already done them all to death!
I chose a few co-ordinating papers from the same collection and used a patterned dot one for the fake washi at the top of the page. All I did was just cut a strip the right width, stuck double-sided tape on the back, and fake washi was made.
With the other sheet of co-ordinating papers, I cut out some flowers and leaves, and placed them on the page to add a bit more interest.
I’ve also used a green pen which matches with the green in the paper – I write all my very important things to remember in a coloured pen so they’re easier to spot on the page.
You will also see that I’ve changed my pen setup – I was using a black Uniball Fine Eye pen in my pen loop, but for some reason after a lot of use these go very thick and gloopy. I’ve slotted in a black Stabilo pen and a co-ordinating one for my weekly important notes, and they fit nicely in the pen loop together as they are very thin pens.
My Journal Week
Balloons!! I used the same technique with scrapbooking paper as I used on my weekly pages, just with a different collection. I loved this layout so much I’ve done a similar version for next week’s planner pages. Here they are together, my personal at the front and the A5 underneath it:
