A Clean Slate

June page
A clean slate
May page
This is what my journal/planner looks like before I fill in each day.
I sit down every two weeks and collage/draw/paint on it
making sure I leave some space for writing each day.
I'll show you what it will look like after filling it all up.
Hope you have a great week!
Thanks Sofia for the beautiful bits from New Zealand
that are now part of my journal :)

Now that you are so well established, I am surprised you haven't published a year planner that resembles your journal pages yet. I can imagine many of your fans would love one. : )

Your work is amazing. I was just wondering, I don't know if you can change this, but I think all of your files on the blog are very large becuase whenever I go on it takes a very long time to load all of the photos!
Thanks! Keep the great work up!

To write on such beautiful work would make me nervous, but perhaps if I just new I was going to write all over it , I wouldn't fret so much over what to paint in there in the first place. Got to give it a try.

Greeting from Czech! Did you know tjat the green stamp with trees is apparently Czech? So if you ever wondered what DUBEN MĚSÍC LESŮ means, it is April, the month of forest. Next time, you can use it for April! :)
Your journal pages are always inspiring.

I would love to see the planner when it is all finished, I love those books with all the written and drawed on papers :)
How do you attach the papers in the planner?
