Jane Davenport Artomology | Weekly Planning Spread with Cindy Guentert-Baldo

Hi everyone! Cindy here, sharing my second project using the Jane Davenport Artomology Collection. After doing the underwater cover page I was really excited to experiment with a similarly themed weekly layout.

I decided to do a basic vertical weekly layout, using a technique my friend Michelle Baxter (@quirkyheart on Instagram) loves to use – masking off the days and then inking. I lay down masking tape to keep the days clean (ish – working with ink is rarely neat!) and then used the same technique I used yesterday to spread the Squid Ink Hybrid Inkpads all over the page.

When I was done, I used some of the Jane Davenport clear stamps to create bubbles, again using the Squid Ink Hybrid Inkpads. Doing this BEFORE I removed the masking tape helped create the illusion of the bubbles floating behind the daily boxes.

I added detail with the Smooth Markers, a felt tipped pen and a brush pen. I also decided to add some fun with some of the Washi Mermaid images.

Finally, I decided to add some of the silver Squid Ink using a tiny paintbrush as an accent to brighten the whole thing up. This also led to a little sloppiness, but I take that as a reminder that LIFE is sloppy! All that is left is to add in your plans!

Spellbinders Supplies:


Dot Grid Notebook, Tim Holtz Round Blending Tool, Clear Stamp Block, Pigma Micron Pen, Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen, Masking Tape, Scissors, Paintbrush (02 Round)

I hope this reminds you to not worry too much about the details, but to just go for it! I’ll see you tomorrow with my final post in this series.
