No rules, just play!

Hi everyone,

This week over at Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge, there are no rules, just play! Everything is possible, let your imagination run free. Have fun and show us your project(s)!



I'm moving and I wanted to make a planner ​​where I can keep track what I have to do, inspiration, requested tenders etc. The important papers go into a large binder, but I wanted something handy, something I easily can take everywhere.
I started with the covers. These are canvas boards that I painted black with Charcoal Black. I really love the combination of black with neon pink and white. A touch of kraft makes it even more interesting. As base to go onto the cover I used Neenah Solor White Cardstock.



With the Distress Marker Spritzer and Simon Says Stamp Blocked Circles stencil I made the first layer. Every time I'm amazed how awesome this effect is. Especially if there is enough ink coming out of the markers .... Then it was time for some washi tapes. After some stamping I applied some black colored Embossing Paste with the Jumbled Letters for a bit of texture.



Since the background was already quite dark, I painted the letters Neon Pink and stamped on top of them with a Crackle stamp. To ensure that the planner stays in shape and everthing stays in place, I applied a layer of Multi Medium Matte on the covers.



I've created tabs with different themes in the same style as the cover, only slightly simpler and lighter.





A calendar is always useful and so is a checklist for everything I need to do. And that's a lot...

  2. This is so cool-looking! Moving is horribly labor-intensive, but I love how you incorporated your creativity into the process to make it more pleasant. I also really like how you even decorated the inside with those fabulous color splatters. Good luck with the move and no matter what happens, at least you have an awesome notebook to keep organized with!
