Bullet List

The latest prompt this week on Joggles Art Journal Adventures was to do something with a Bullet List. This follows in the wake of a bullet journaling (BuJo for short) movement everywhere I look, such as Facebook, Instagram and YouTube. I seem to have been in the vanguard of this phenomenon, as I have done it as long as I have kept diaries, and that's many more years than I care to remember. 

Still, I'm interested in how it is done now and avidly read all about it but I'm not going to indulge in buying special BuJo journals, nor will I change the way I work. All my lists as well as my appointments diary and my written journaling about the day come together in my planner. This year I'm using The Quilter's Planner 2017 which I love because there is lots of room for every day. My only grumble is that the week starts on Sunday in this planner, whereas I like to finish my week there. No doubt I will eventually get used to it but we're already half way through the year, and it continues to be a bug bear. 
I followed the brief and made a bullet list of things I love. By request I left one item of the list (guess??!!) but you can see the rest of the list above and it is in no particular order. I knew however that Flora had to be next to the red heart. The hearts are all from a sticker sheet and the text was done on a Dymo writer.
The background was made with a wide selection of paints. I had fun using the brightest,  most summery colours I could find. They were combined with stencilling using stencils L541 Mandala Floral and M103 Bittersweet Mini stencils, both from Stencilgirl Products. I also collaged with vintage texts.
I was working on the pages for the #artmarks30daychallenge  (see yesterday's post) at the same time as this spread and that definitely influenced the way I worked here. The pages reflect my love list.

Love this Frieda but I hear you - there always seems to be a new "fad" designed to make us part unnecessarily with our money!
