My Stenciled Planner by Karenliz

I love to write about my day but I ended up with tons of journals trying to find the perfect one. I finally found the perfect journal but its a planner. I do use it for keeping track of birthdays and project deadlines but I use each day in planner as a journal. I can carry it with me or leave it at home. The biggest problem is the cover was green and over time its was getting a little grungy. The best way to fix it…..STENCILS!

The stencils I used for this project are TCW242 Damask and TCW807 Script Dots. I also used TCW9007 Clear Gesso, white paint pen and acrylic paint. The planner is a fabric cover but I didn’t care whether I used fabric paint or not. If it wears off I can always paint it over.

I started by added the Damask stencil to the journal. The paint was bleeding through the fabric so I added TCW9007 Clear Gesso on top because I continued adding the stencil design.

Add clear gesso to the planner cover so the paint doesn't bleed through it.

When the gesso dried I continued adding TCW242 Damask stencil to the cover in shades of green and blue acrylic paint.

To add more of the Damask stencil I used a white acrylic paint pen to different areas of the cover.

To finish the cover it needed a pop of color. I love florescent pink so I added that to the cover using TCW807 Script Dots.

I even added the designs to the pen holder. I love the way it came out. Do you have many journals or did you find the perfect one?
