This past week I didn't really do anything with my art journal, BUT, I did grab hold of my Happy Planner and got a little creative.
|My Happy Planner "Follow Your Heart" is a |
July 2016 - December 2017 one.
So needless to say, my planner was looking kind of pitiful.
Late last night I was flipping through my planner and thought, you know what, I'm gonna put something on these pages!
So, me being me I grabbed the nearest magazine (that just happened to be Teen Vogue) and a pair of scissors and my trusty gluestick, and I started flipping through, cutting out, gluing down.
What do any of these pictures have to do with my life in particular? Not a darn thing really, other than I saw them and I liked them, so I put them on a page to stop it from being blank and boring.
It started with Yesterday (Sunday) and the dancing girl and the word "Happy" and then I found a bright colorful ad, and then a couple of other images to fill in the blanks. And my finished pages are colorful and fun.
This prompted me to dig out my old 5x7 Iris box that I once used to store words for my Found Poetry, and start going through it. This box is small and compact, and can hold a couple of pens and a small glue stick as well so could toss it in my bag and travel with it if I wanted.
|Gee, I wonder why this call this|
machine the "X"?
I have plans for doing more in my Happy Planner in the upcoming months. I'm going to be making a Daily Habit Tracker starting in September for one thing. I have a mood tracker that I've not been using and I need to start that again.
I've been looking into bullet journaling, and since the Happy Planner has graph paper I can work my favorite bullet journal ideas into my planner.
There is also a Fitness Planner extension that I'm going to use to make my own fitness planner.
