If you read all about how I am planning to get more organized using my beautiful Kaisercraft Planner then you will remember that I am still getting used to the idea of dressing up planners with loads of stuff…And so I am rather choosing to dress my planner up in my own unique way.
So today I am sharing how I incorporated my ‘word for 2018’, while adding decorative elements to my planner, and at the same time using up some scraps and some of my favourite things from The Wholesaler – all in 1.
Use whatever cardstock you want for your divider. I always have piles of white smooth cardstock lying around with ink experiments and samples on them. They make perfect backdrops for small projects like this.
I grabbed some of my favourite stencils, masks, paints and products to use on my dividers.
For my focal point, I cut this silhouette image of a woman out of Stencil Vinyl material on my Silhouette machine. Position the image where you want it to be on your background. Pick up a small amount of navy blue paint using your Jumbo Dauber and apply it over the stencil randomly.
Once the paint is almost totally dry carefully peel away the stencil/mask.
Use your same dirty dauber and pick up a small amount of turquoise paint and randomly apply dots all over the background.
TIP: you could have left the mask in place while creating the background to avoid getting paint onto the silhouette.
Pick up gold paint or a Delicata reinker and apply it using your jumbo dauber over the Kaisercraft Floral stencil. Leave the background to dry completely.
TIP: When you apply paint with a Jumbo Dauber in thin layers the paint dries extremely quickly. This makes a project like this a dream to create because you don’t have to wait for layers to dry in between. Things can move fairly quickly to the next step or layer of application.
Use Versafine Onyx Black ink and alphabet stamps to stamp your word, quote or phrase onto your divider.
Add details using a white gel pen, graphite pencils and other art mediums. These little finishing touches can define your images and just adds a little bit of extra detail needed for something special.
All that is left for me to do now is truly find that balance in 2018.
