If you have seen our “Confessions Of” blog series before then you may notice a slight change to the title.. Emma and I thought it would be a good idea to combine the Confessions Of A Plannerholic and the Brutally Honest Confessions series. We will now be posting ever monday with varying topics. Planners and planner confessions will still play a big part in these posts, we’ll just be adding other topics too.
So the first post in this super exciting “Blog Carnival” is Autumn Bucket Lists. I really wanted to have a bucket list in my Travellers Notebook, that I could tick off as I complete each thing (any excuse to head to starbucks), and I really wanted to try art journalling. So today I decided I’d take a few hours out and have a bit of a play. I do love the way it turned out and I am a little bit impressed with myself. I know it is far from the best out there but for a first, and last minute, attempt I’m pleased.
I started out in a brand new TN insert, the one that actually came with my Websters Pages Travellers Notebook. I had a tin of water colour paints and some aqua brushes which I, artistically, mulched about the page. There was no rhyme or reason to how I created the background, I’ve watched a couple of youtube videos so obviously I am now a pro ha.
Next I found a fall printable on google and transferred it to a cut file for my silhouette to make the stickers. I originally wanted to colour the images myself but time is not my friend at the minute so sticker are the next best thing.
The I added wrote in my bucket list items, I really wish I had neater handwriting and It is something that I am hoping to improve over the next few months, I’m hoping journalling helps to keep me focused on it.
So, on my bucket list I have:
- Try a pumpkin spiced latte
- Plant a fall garden
- Drink hot chocolate with “the works”
- Watch a firework display
- Go running in the rain
- Jump in a leaf pile
- Carve a pumpkin
- Toast marshmallows in the fire pit
- Make soup from scratch
- Bake autumn cookies
- Go trick or treating or to a halloween party
- Pumpkin picking
- Make pinecone bird feeders
- Set up a “Pinterest worthy” autumn planner
