I am so excited to share with you how I am approaching 2016! Last year I created a Take Me Deeper Art Journal, a Logos365 journal and a variety of other books. I realized that I wasn't really journaling, but just creating art and felt disjointed. I didn't keep up with my Logos365 journal and wanted to ensure that I can do all that I want but not feel overwhelmed or pressured or the worst and just quit!!!
This year I wanted to figure out a way to have my Take Me Deeper DNA devotions and keep track of my Logos365 and bible study as well as my time ( planner). How to get all of that into one book? I spent a lot of time on the internet looking at existing planners, art journals and 3 ring binder options. I knew what I wanted to be able to do, but just couldn't find it in a book I could buy. Why not just make what I wanted? This past weekend, I did just that and I am so excited to share with you. I started to use it and am loving it! Good news, I created a PDF of my planner sheets and inserts for you to print and create your own!
I created a planner page, with a weekly calendar, spots for prayers, special events, God Hugs, DNA theme for the month and some blank space to doodle. On the back I created space for Logos365 and a large space for bible study/devotionals. How to bind it all together and be able to add pages and remove was the big obstacle. I settled on the ARC system ( Staples http://tinyurl.com/kpm78qx Created blank covers ( gessoed some chipboard/cardboard) and purchased a few items from Staples to add- plastic folders to hold papers. I printed 53 double sided planner pages on 65lb cardstock. I already owned the ARC large punch. I found a free yearly calendar page to download and printed it and added.
In the FREE PDF download you will receive the title page, 2 versions of the planner pages and the back of the planner page. Sized for 81/2 x 11 paper to print. I printed a few books, some on colored cardstock for my friends and white for myself so that I could stamp and add doodles on the white paper.
The free digital download is located in our Shoppe. Click on this link.
I have #10 tags ( #8 would work also) and punched the straight end and can insert them for the "I am" TMD DNA statements for 2016. I will add art pages ( mixed media pages) as I do my faithart. I am using the plastic folders to hold the printed DNA devotions so that all the devotions and art are together!!!
Take Me Deeper DNA tabs are coming, made them this weekend and then my HD crashed, working on getting the files onto my new computer.
I haven't decorated my covers yet, but here are some pictures. Pearl Brown is here with me this week and she already decorated her covers, so am showing you her pictures too. I so hope that you will join us in the journey in 2016 of uncovering our Identity in Christ! If you don't already have your art journal or planner, consider using this PDF download. If you want any boxes added for yourself, let me know, maybe others will want it to.
I love the ARC system, it is so easy to use and being able to add and subtract pages, art, notes etc is going to be wonderful!
