Hello Listers! Today I’d like to share my list book with you, it’s what I’ll be using come September 1st for the 30 Days of Lists challenge. I’ll also share a peek at the area where I’ll be doing my listing.
This is my 4th round of 30 Days of Lists and I’ve used different base styles, including a handcrafted mixed media list book and a couple of different versions of pocket style scrapbook bases. I have a passion for mixed media, so I really enjoy being able to incorporate that into my listing.
This time I’ve decided to list in my Traveler’s Notebook style planner, using a fusion of scrapbook and mixed media elements, it’s the best of both worlds for me!
The sweet leather “Pink Lemonade” planner that will house my list book is by Onica Hanby. I highly recommend her shop if you’re looking for a fauxdori. Good quality leather and her attention to detail makes for some gorgeous planners.
Using a mixed media insert from Yellow Paper House, I decorated the outside of my list book by layering one of my gelli prints, some music sheet paper and a few other painty bits. Journal cards from my stash were added for layering and a couple of other elements that I created with my Silhouette, like the “listing nerd glasses” and a few 30 Lists paper clips finished it off.
I realize that I’m so very fortunate to have a dedicated art room where I can indulge in my passion for making pretty things. After a grueling work day, I enjoy coming in here to unwind, get my fingers nice & painty, make some lists or just play in my planners.
I recently spent some time prettifying & organizing the desk area in my studio, this is where I’ll be doing the majority of my listing. I set it up so that my most used listing and planning supplies are within easy reach.
One of the main things that I enjoy about 30 Days of Lists, aside from it being tons of fun, is that it’s fast. In just a few minutes I can get a creativity fix to either jump-start my day in the right direction, or help me distress after a long one.
For this round of listing I have the pleasure of being not only a participant, but a sponsor and affiliate as well. If want to join in on the fun, but haven’t registered yet, there’s still time! Just click on the image above and it’ll take you to the registration page.
Another aspect that I really enjoy about 30 Days of Lists is reading all of your lists and seeing what you create. I’ll be posting my lists to the private Facebook group as well as Instagram and Pinterest, via my blog. I’d love it if you’d follow along!
See you on September 1st!
