April unPlanner My Way


So I am jumping into DLP 2016. I have not participated yet this year because I don't really use a planner like this. I prefer a wall calendar.  I enjoyed DLP last year because the focus was mostly art journaling. But after seeing the recent video from Rae and Sandi I was encouraged to make it my own and do what works for me. It is referred to as the "un-planner" after all! So I decided to jump in with April. Instead of making a divider for the planner, I determined that what works for me is a folder that I can stash goals, to do lists, and inspiring things into.

I used a file folder cut down to size and folded up on the inside to create pockets.


I painted and collaged the folder.  Then I stitched gelli printed papers over the edges to reinforce it. I doodled the word "April" and collaged it onto some gelli printed paper and added that to the cover.
Doodles and some embellishments finished it off.


So let me encourage you to join DLP 2016 and make it your own way. Just head over to the Art to then 5th website to check it out and find out how to join.  It's an inspiring and fun group.
