DLP Progress

Hey there, thought I would show you my progress in my Planner/Art Journal.

So here is week 2: Selfie

I am writing an affirmation at the beginning of each week, and then including a quote with each weekly challenge.

Week 3: Add an envelope

One of my Xmas gifts came in this envelope, and I had to include it because of the great doodled sun on it!

Week 4: Secret Message

There is a secret message in a small envelope slid inside this page.

This is a hoot! I am having more fun. I challenged myself to doodle something everyday. As you can see, I am doodling it! That bunch of circles on the right hand page is really cool drywall/joint tape. The only place you can find it, is at Lowes. My new AJ Buddy Aaron used  it on one of his videos recently and of course I had to go get a roll. 6 Bux! Woot! It is paper, tears so easily and holds spray inks perfectly.

So I am loving this project. Please check it out if you are not arting on a weekly or daily basis. Roben-Marie Smith and 4 other ladies are our hosts on this wild, fun adventure! Go check it out! And the best thing is, it is free!

Gotta go! Hmmm wonder what to doodle today?

Till the next chapter!

I Have Found My Sanity

Hey folks!

I have had a very interesting and extremely fun week. Beginning last Sunday, I bought a 50% off Weekly 2014 Moleskine Planner and began a journey.

5 ladies including Roben Marie Smith, started this.

It is called The Documented Life Project, (DLP), and all it is, is one part planner, one part journal, which consists of tip in's for each week of the year added in with Washi tape. Like this which makes it very fluffy:

12 monthly tabs placed on top, and a weekly challenge given to us each Sunday. The first challenge was a door. So that was easy for me since I want to keep negativity away from my door this year. So I took a pic of my front door and placed it on the front of the tip in and added a Negativity quote on it. Cool! The tip in's are for working on the weekly challenges, like drawing or taking photos, etc.


To create this as my own, I gessoed the covers, and then sprayed inks and inked through an quote stencil on the back here:

The front cover, I am still adding doodles, etc to:

And the weekly planner part:

This is the most excited I have been about Art Journaling in a while. I have devoted a whole entire week to building this. I will carry this with me when I travel so I can add stuff to it.

I have a daily writing journal that I write about my day in each night before I go to sleep. It holds a lot of negative stuff that I encounter on my job, etc. That is where I write the negative away each night. But this DLP is only to be used for the positive!

I am also doing a 26 week Money Challenge. Google it. Since I get paid bi monthly, I will deposit a certain amount each payday or twice a month and at the end of this year I will have saved almost 1400 bux! YAY!

If you are interested in the DLP, go here:

You will not be sorry! This is way better than most New Year stuff out there!

Happy New Year!
