AALL&Create Guest Designer Project - 2019 Planner

Hi folks, I'm sharing another AALL&Create Guest Designer project and with 2019 only a few weeks away, it was time to make myself a new planner. Having a memory like a sieve, a place to record birthdays, events, appointments and places I need to be, is essential and the gorgeous new AALL&Create Time Flies #143 stamp set from Tracy Evans was perfect for decorating the cover.

I used Eileen Hull's Scoreboards XL Journal die to die-cut the covers from Sizzix Matboard
and spread Ranger Texture Opaque Crackle Texture Paste randomly over the covers using a palette knife
Once the paste was dry, I dragged a Distress Oxide Bundled Sage over the cover to add some colour and scribbled Vintage Photo Distress Crayon over the crackle areas, rubbing it into the texture with a damp finger. At this point I thought I had messed it up and might have to start over but it's only the first layer
So I moved on and stamped the clock image from AALL&Create Time Flies #143 twice on to Distress Collage Paper using Versamark Onyx Black ink.
I used a wet paintbrush to draw around the sections of the stamped images, teased them apart with my finger and fixed to the cover using Distress Collage Medium Matte and a Collage Brush.

I then applied Studio 490 Wendy Vecchi White Embossing Paste through Stencils #6 and #42

and added splatters using a White Posca Pen and scribbled around the edges with a Sakura Fine Point Liner pen
I applied Black Soot Distress Paint through Stencil #21 and around the edges of the cover using a piece of Ranger Cut 'n Dry.
and added copper coloured metal embellishments from my stash and numerals coloured with White Gesso.

I threaded Crinkle Ribbon through Flower Metal Embellishments from my stash and fixed to the cover with Tim Holtz Idea-ology Fluted Fasteners to create the closure.
All I need to do is create the inserts for the planner, string with elastic and I'm all set for 2019
