I’ve posted before about my Documented Life Planner. Here’s a look at it a little more than halfway through the year: it’s getting pretty fat! The binding of my Moleskine 12-month planner seems to be holding up fine so far.
Each week the folks at Art to the 5th post a new challenge for the planner. I don’t always follow their lead, but I often do. The challenge for week 28 was to add an Instagram or other little picture. That was the week I did the insomnia doodle on the inside of my tip-in page, but I did a more positive page with a photo for the outside flap.
The following week was a challenge that just didn’t inspire me, so I did my own thing. This tip-in flap was patterned scrapbook paper, and the colors set the theme for my page.
Week 30, last week, was a full week for me and a good week to “Add receipts, labels, business cards–smash book style.” I covered the inside spread with receipts from my day in New York City–I had receipts from the train, the class, a Starbucks, the place where I bought my lunch–and the Google map page I printed before I left. I added photos from my day there.
On the outside flap I used my parking receipt from my Friday at the beach, painted over it with blue acrylic paint, and added photos, stickers, and washi tape to complete the page. You can also see a peek of another photo on the calendar page at the bottom left.
Here’s another look at the whole planner, this time showing the top tabs that mark the months. Pretty fun!
