Adding Pictures

Okay let us see if I can add pictures to my blog...

 This my Fake Modori made with craft foam & things I already had. Inserts are from a 2014 planner that I bought, printed and bound it myself. I also have one insert that is just mixed media paper. and a freebie daily planner page that I printed and bound. Research on YouTube will come up with all sorts of ideas on how to make one. I like the system cause my inserts are held in with elastic and when I am done with it I can just pull it out and stick another one in...
 The Documented Life Project called for tip-ins with washi tape - I made the tissue tapes with double sided tape and painted masking tape. I actually like the painted masking tape the best because the tissue paper on double side tape is hard to crease.
 This is week one so far - it was about your door - got the paper painted and printed some doors I had.
Opening the door reveals the house I live in - I got it from a screen print from Google Earth. It was taken this past summer.  Sorry its been too cold to go outside for picture taking. Not a completed page as of yet, and they are already on week 2 - I am working it though - no tabs anywhere as of yet.

I tried last year using a small 3 ring notebook for a planner and as always takes some working in it to find what you will use and what you wont. I was finding myself using notepaper and making a list - and not using the notebook -so I found a freebie daily page - the calendar planner part is just where I write appointments and trips in - not much of a writing journalist. I like to splatter paint and collage.. but mostly love my doodling. I belong to Lineweaving.com  forum and run swaps and challenges over there. So I figure there will be lots of doodles along the way
