So far, I’ve shown you a lot of school assignments in these Workspace Wednesday updates, but today it’s time for something different! As I mentioned in my Winter Bucket List post, I’m currently working on my 2016 agenda!
I wanted to make my agenda even more flexible this year. After thinking about it for a while, I decided upon a Midori Traveler’s Notebook styled agenda. This will give me a lot of flexibility. I can add months when I need them or take out the one I no longer need. I can also add extra folders for taking notes or sketching or add pockets for all sorts of knick-knacks.
The design for the pages is almost ready (it’s been like this for ages). I still need to multiply them so I can fill a whole year, but before I do this, I would appreciate any feedback you guys want to give me! I’ll make this agenda downloadable + I’ll add a tutorial, so if you feel like something could be added or changed, please leave it in the comments below!
I tried to keep the design quite simple and light. No heavy elements and no coloured details. I also refrained from using elements that go off page, this way anybody can print the agenda at home and there will be no tedious cutting pages to the right size. (As I still need to update my blog to a version with wider photos, you’ll have to click on the images for a better view)
At the beginning of each month there will be a title page. Because I also wanted to add some colour in my agenda (and to add some creativity/stress-relieving) I decided to turn the title pages into colouring pages. I’m currently drawing and inking these themed title pages and when I have all twelve, it wont take long for my agenda to be finished!
I bought my piece of leather yesterday (and managed to pick the priciest piece in the shop) and I’m getting really excited to finish this project, so I can put it up on the blog! The only piece I’m missing is some round elastic cord. I don’t know where you can buy this by the meter? It would be awesome if I could find it, somewhere in Belgium, in some nice bright colour, not the standard black and dull red you can find at Veritas.
So, what do you think of this project so far? Interested in this agenda?
