I used to receive beautiful Illuminated Manuscript Book of Days books as gifts for Christmas. I loved them. Last year I started The Documented Life Project challenge but didn't finish it. This year, their rules and requirements are too complicated for me to want to participate, so I'm doing my own thing. My only rules are Keep It Simple (KIS) and Have Fun.
The challenge involves using a weekly planner. I purchased a 2015 Sugar Paper Los Angeles 5" x 8" weekly/monthly planner, and will continue to use the Bic and Crayola markers that I bought last year.
I used GIMP version 2.8.14 to create 2" x 1.5" tabs that I then printed on card stock paper, cut out, and Elmer's glue sticked into the planner.
I created a page template in GIMP, which is 4.5" x 8" with 0.125" radius corners on the right side.
The weekly challenge themes are listed below, and I will add links to my entries as I create them. This blog entry will serve as my master index to them.
