My February

This year I am participating in the Documented Life Project (DLP) & have decided to combine my Right Brain Planner (RBP) with my DLP journal. I tried participating in the DLP last year, but didn’t quite work it out & dropped it somewhere in March (oh the guilt I had in letting go of an already started project! Lol!). This year…things are working well! I am using Ranger Dylusions Journal (11.375 x 8.25) by Diane Reaveley & I love the “luxurious” size – gives me lots of room to play.

Here, I share my February with you.

I start the month off with my calendar from my subscription to Teresa Robinson’s Right Brain Planner  & then create my weekly spreads throughout the month. I create the spread for the week right after the  DLP challenges are released (every Saturday), then throughout the week I journal as I go. I paint, draw, add elements from my RBP pages & various epherma.

Week 1: DLP theme Under Paper


Right side planner page is done in acrylics & hand painted papers & gelli prints; left side Neo Color IIs

Week 2: DLP theme Layers


Lots of acrylic layers, washi tape, stamps, & photo from the book: “Short Nights of the Shadow Catcher” by Timothy Egan.

Week 3: DLP Theme Covering up Your work (yikes, was this hard!)

I made a stencliled background & then a gelli print on top of it & then…gulp…


…covered it up with this: (& I like it!)


Week 4: DLP theme Repeating Elements

image I chose to do a few repeating elements here with stencils (chevrons & numbers) as well as the red “bricks”. I tried to stretch myself a bit in using colors I don’t use as often, but I found myself still sneaking in a little magenta! This one is a work in progress as it’s for this current week.

So, how have you been filling your art journal these weeks?
