I’ve decided that I’m not going to spend the money on another journal/planner because we all know how easy that would be for me. I’m actually going to utilize the Sacred Journey journal/planer I’m already using.
I’m trying to find the right paper to add to the planner at this point. I don’t have any 90lb watercolor paper currently (only 140lb). So it looks like I’ll be using some sketch book paper, as it’s what I have the most of. (I really don’t need to spend more money on stuff right now.) I need 52 sheets that are 6.5×8 inches. I can get two pages out of my 11×14 sketch pad with 65lb paper. Since I don’t tend to do much watercolors as a norm I think I’ll be okay.
The basic idea is to keep your art journal, planner, and smash book all in one place. I’m down with that. However I have a feeling that my book is going to get a bit excessive. I’ll need to get a folder band to keep it together. Bringing it around with me might be a bit odd. But hay what do I care? People expect nothing less than different from me.
I’ve added a flip out page up to March. I’m on week 8, so it’s another flip out on the current one. I was inspired by Lorraine Bell and her tags. I have yet to add to the page but here it is so far. I made my own tags with extra paper from another page. Although I haven’t thought about what will go under the tags or on them I’ll get to it.
The tabs at the top are the change of seasons; Vernal Equinox, Summer Solstice, Autumnal Equinox, & Winter Solstice. The tabs on the sides is for the monthly layout, quick reference. I have extra pages in my planner/journal to write about affirmations, gratitude, opportunities, & goals for each month. As well as many extra pages for the beginning of the year, end of the year, and reference.
I hope to update once a week regarding this project. Maybe more until I get caught up. Feel free to join in if you’re up for it. I’d be interested to see what you come up with.
