Bringing Color To My To-Do List

2017-07-29 10.58.26DT
If you follow me on social media you know that I'm all about Living Life In Color. So any time that I can combine my passion for mixed media with my love of planning, I'm a happy girl. Today I used the new Essential Planner Pack, some Gelatos, the Modern Lettering Set, and a Stencil to add some color into travelers notebook.

Let me start by saying that I am no lettering artist. Sometimes I let that insecurity get the best of me and I shy away from lettering things. Well guess what... Not Today! Today I decided that I wasn't going to let that stop. And I gotta tell you, after adding some color and design elements to my page, my lettering isn't bothering me. Sometimes you just have to get out of your own way and Have Fun!

I started by adding some color with Gelatos through a hexangonal stencil with a wedge sponge.

I defined the shapes by tracing with one of the pens from the Modern Lettering Kit. As you can see, I was intentionally un-precise about it.

Next came the lettering. I combined a Pitt Artist Pen S with the assortment of pens in the Lettering kit and gave my project a title.

I used the stencils that come included in the Essential Planner Pack to add boxes that I could check off as I completed my various tasks. I love checking things off a to-do list!

Also included in the Planner Pack are 3 triangular highlighter pencils, perfect for calling attention to those extra important items or tasks still in progress.

I really like that the shape of the pencils makes them comfortable to use and stops them from rolling off your desk.

I had some stickers in my stash so I added those to my page as well.

I traced a few more symbols onto my page to add a bit more visual interest and called it done. Gelatos, Stencils, Pitt Pens and the Essential Planner Pack brought it all together, wonky lettering and all, to give me a colorful, vibrant page that helps make tacking my to do list all the more enjoyable.
