Out With The Old Pocket & Tag Planner Art

For 2014 Im going to take part in the documented life project (http://www.robenmarie.com/blog/2013/12/14/the-documented-life-project.html)

For this challenge you need a planner (although you could use a journal or any book you have) and each week there are going to be new themes and challenges released.

To help me get back into the swing of creating again I decided to give it a whirl, and up until today I hadn’t done anything with my planner because the challenge doesn’t officially start till January 1st!

Below is my planner all ready for the new year 🙂

I removed the piece of paper that was on the front of the planner and decided to use it to make a pocket for my book:

First of all I glued random papers all over it and let the glue dry:

Then  I decided to make a background for a tag on a sheet of card using the same method as above:

I glued my tag to the back of the paper, then cut round the shape of the tag so that I would get a random background on my tag:

Next I folded 2 tabs on the back of the pocket so that I could use them to glue the pocket to the book:

Then I trimmed off the front to make it look tidier:

I decided it needed more colour so I sprayed them both with ink:

I used my heat gun to dry the ink, once they were dry I added the finishing touches and then glued the pocket inside the planner with the tag inserted, which you can see below:
