Keep It Together // September 2020

Hello All! It's time for Keep It Together! :) Woohoo!

I am excited to post today with Lauren at Shooting Stars Mag and Rebecca Jo from Knit by God's Hand for our Keep It Together linkup!

If you're new here, this is our linkup for all things planners, memory keeping, and journalling. Please feel free to join us on the third Thursday of the month with any posts that fall into those categories! :)


I am not up to much planning-wise. We'll see how it's going next month.

Water Color Technique:

Today I am sharing a water color technique called the packaging technique. All you need is paper, water color, and some plastic packaging.

1) Start by painting water color(s) onto a piece of plastic packaging.

2) Flip the packaging over onto the piece of paper and smush around with your finger. Yes, smush is the technical term. :P

3) Remove the packaging and you've got a pretty water color background! You can add more colors on top of it, or play around with how much water vs. paint you use.

Finished Result - inner title page for garden journal


I'm still not sure how I want to document this year, or catch up on last year... if I want to at all... but I do know that I want to continue to document our garden. I started my garden journal when we planned out our space, and since then I have drawn, painted, journalled, listed, and decorated it.

Added a few lists from my planner to the journal. 
Going to add some photos to the blank sides of my garden bed drawings.
Added lists and vision to pollinator garden drawing from months ago.
Printed some photos on my instax printer to test out how it will look. Can't wait to decorate it.
A list of ideas as I go forward.

I am still working, but I like what I have so far! :) 

Up Next:

I am hoping to make some cards for my pen pal group, and to get back into documenting more. I am hankering to work on it! Which is the exact time to make it happen. :) 

What are you guys up to?
