Planner Pages Decorative Stamping - Jo Whight - In The Garden

`In The Garden` is the theme for this weeks planner spread...I can confidently tell you i have accomplished my mission and actually decorated before the week has started.  Please check out my Confessions of a Plannerholic #3,4 post to find out more about what is happening in my life at the moment.

So, I am hoping you guys can see a difference?  I have moved out of my comfort zone and focused primarily on background stamping.  The whole piece is inked.  It was pointed out that I had not left much room for planning but actually I planned to stamp and write all over the base design.

A base layer of inks was sponged on to the background.  I used Stampin` up inks this week in `so saffron` `soft sky` and `wild wasabi`...over these I stamped the images, most of which are by an English company called Lavinia Stamps...I absolutely adore their images and use them frequently in conjunction with the Gelli plate.  However, I haven`t yet used the Gelli plate in the planner, as not all stamping skills work on planner pages.
  The base of the design at the bottom of the page was created with a free stamp from Indigo Blu

As the decoration is so loose I have chosen to be more formal with my planner stamping and have utilised some boxes from Studio L2E to give more form and structure to my pages. I have also used their hydrate tracker as it is so hot here right now, I need to make sure I drink my eight glasses as well as my decaf coffee before I expire with heat exhaustion.  

Finally, everybody has got to love a Sloth  #SlothSunday from Tiny Stamps Big Plans
