The Documented Life ‘Unplanner’ -A mixed media journey through 2016

DSC03755

“Unplanner”?  You may well ask.  This is my version of a challenge I took up on the artists website http://www.art5academy.com/.  The talented ladies over there have been making planners for several years now. This is my first foray, I was intrigued by the title Unplanner, and when I saw what was intended I just had to join.

I have wanted to extend my ‘Mixed Media’ skills for some time and I thought this might be the way to do so.  It is a challenge, as there are loads of prompts each week to help us “get our inner artist juices flowing” and to do everything in the weekly prompts would mean spending all the spare time you may have, so I pretty much pick and choose what I do in my Unplanner, and when I work on it. I enjoy the facebook group set up for the challenge, what other’s are doing, and getting ideas from their awesome work.

It is very much a work in progress and I have pages that I want to revisit when I get time. It has made me stop and think about what I do each day. To reflect and to appreciate myself instead of putting myself down for wasting my day. We have indeed become ‘human doings’ and I don’t want to continue down that road.

 

 

And so it goes. I am really enjoying putting this together. I look forward to flipping the pages in a few years time.

Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Your creative work is amazing – I was taken in from the very first image and comparing my to read list against yours! This looks like such a labour of love, very much the work of a human ‘being’. Thank you for sharing it.

    1. You are very kind. I love keeping the lists, so easy to forget the things we want to do, but writing things down and journalling about it is a great way to ensure we do at least some of those things.
