Recycling a Planner into an Art Journal

Last year I was given a Journey to Wings - Kelly Rae Roberts Planner.  Now the year is up and it's sitting on the shelf.  I was about to throw it out and thought, maybe I can use this as an art journal.  So using some of the ideas I've garnered over the years and in particular from Caatje's Blog, I decided to have a go.

I've used scraps of paper from my scrap box and tissue to cover the original lines so I can still write on those pages.  When I've finished preparing the pages, then maybe I'll use Gesso or Acrylic Paint to block out some of the images or write and draw.  I am inspired by Caatje's Work to have a go and see what happens.  Later I will post some of my finished pages.
