The Decorated Planner - Recollections - Joanna`s Planner

This week I have a bit of a change as I am moving across to a `Recollections` planner.  The layout is bigger than I am used to using.  So, in order to make it fit my A5 Filofax, major surgery was required.


To be honest it would have fit better in to a Carpe Diem planner which is supposed to be A5 but is actually slightly bigger.  However, it just isn`t the same, and although it was a better fit in the CD the Filofax still won out.

You can see here where the pages are bigger but still workable.  The May front sheet being true A5.

Now on to the decoration...I have used Zahra Zaftig for the main image.  She was a `One Day Fae` giveaway on the Faery Ink site always worth a look.  She appealed to me as she is supposed to have a `curvy girl` look   I am not entirely sure I did her justice because she looks pregnant to me, but there...can`t be helped.


She was printed on to sticker paper and coloured with alcohol markers, fussy cut and then applied direct to the planner.  The rest of the stamping however, was done direct to paper and coloured with pencils.


The paper in this planner feels very good to the touch but did not accept inks as well as I had hoped but the shadow through is minimal.  What I found most surprising was how well it sucked up the ink from my fineliner pens.

The functional stamping has been carried out using stamps from Tiny Stamps Big Plans, Lawn Fawn, Mommy Lhey, Sweet Stamp Shop and Studio L2E.


It will be interesting to see how these pages stand up to a week of planning.
Wishing you all a fabulous week
