Calendar Girl Planner Tutorial!
Hi BoBunny fans, today I going to share with you a different way to use your Misc Me supplies in the form of a photo diary.
I am not much of a planner girl, things quite often just happen off the cuff so to speak. The planner format doesn't really work for me, but I do love to look back at my month and so I thought that a photo diary would work for me.
Using the Planner Contents each month will have an overview of events and occasions, I have recently bought an old electric typewriter for a cheap price and I am using it to journal on my pages, as you can see I have yet to get used to it properly and some of the words are a little askew that doesn't really matter and is much more legible than my handwriting.
I applied one of the Gold Foil Sentiment transfers, boy these are so easy to apply and have the most gorgeous slightly raised sheen to them.
I printed all the photos I was going to use for the month, as I wanted to fit a few events onto each page I printed them off at 1 inch squares. For the printing I used an online photo editor to collage them all onto one page, there are lots of different ones out there I used Pic Monkey to do mine.
I arranged them roughly into groups, so that I knew exactly where I wanted to add my Glitter Paste.
After letting the glitter paste dry I added a tree stencil from the Falling Leaves stencil. I stuck the stencil down and then outlined it using a journaling pen, I then applied Pearlescents using a spatula.
After adhering my alphabet stickers I used the same journaling pen to outline those too.
Here are two more pages for October, I added some stamping and a sticker that came from another recent collection You're Invited. That is one of the good things about these types of projects you can use papers and embellishments from all different Bo Bunny collections.
I used the Pocket Page cards to mat and layer some of my pictures and I even fussy cut the cloud image from one to use as an embellishment.
I cut up one of the Calendar Dailies sheets and used it around my page to fit my needs. I created a journaling card from one piece and used my typewriter to spell out some of the things we did on vacation.
I am really enjoying using the Misc Me supplies this way, as I am working backwards at the moment I will have to work hard to finish the rest of 2015 before 2016 starts.
