My dairy begins

I was lucky to receive a Dylusions  weekly  planner diary as a gift, so,
for this coming year I aim to add my own style on all the pages of this weekly diary journal.
I will be joining the  folk at
Art Journal Journey 

and Erika's theme for January  of  New Year , New Adventures.

As you can see one side of this spread had a starting point [on the left]. It only needed  more ink, stencils and stamps for me to add my my additions to the page. The stencils aslo spread to the clear diary side of the spread.  I suppose it could have been left as it looked, but I'm sure that Dyan wanted us to add our own art to the pages.

Thank you for calling in to see me today, your visit and comments are always appreciated.


  1. Wow - that's a fantastic planner - and I LOVE how you have created the first week! That looks just SUPER!
    Thank you very much for linking it to Art Journal Journey!
    Have a nice evening Yvonne!

  2. I like how that planner is set up. I haven't seen them, so thanks first of all for sharing that. Second of all I love your arty set up. Are you going to put in any writing or just do an art spread? Either way it would work fantastic. Thanks for sharing with us at AJJ. It's perfect for this month's theme. Hugs-Erika

    1. Yes Erika, I will be writing in it, I'm a few days behind with being away.

  3. I love the look of your first week. I was wondering how hers were set up-I like the idea of one half started. Of course, I have enough issues getting my daily stuff in my planner without having to decorate it too! LOL!

  4. What a wonderful gift, and a beautiful first page Yvonne!

  12. I love your planner page. So colorful and fun with all the patterns in your background.

  13. That's a super pretty planner page! I love your colour choices and the stencils!

  14. What a great gift you received. And of course, I simply adore your art, too. Your calendar allows more room for writing than mine, so you are lucky. Thanks for sharing this with us at Art Journal Journey, and of course, I look forward to seeing more of your art in this fantastic diary/calendar.

  15. Wow, your diary looks amazing! I love the sentiment and all the stencils and colour you added. The way you added the artwork so you can still write your daily entries is perfect too 😁. Wishing you a Happy Friday and Weekend! J 😊

  16. Great start to your planner, I have one that I started in June after a course on it with Dyan. Have I kept it up, no. Dyan doesn't write in all of hers and fills up spaces with art work or some of her figures. There's a large version coming out soon. Brilliant idea to use it for AJJ, might pinch that idea.
    Happy New year to all your family.
    Love Wendy

  17. A lovely start to your planner and I love the positive quotes you used. Such a great gift that will last all geat.
