Filofax Metropol: Week 1 of 2016

Here’s a look at how I did my week one of January 2016. As you noticed I don’t know how to use clear stamps properly yet (embarrassed). I don’t know why but I find it difficult (I hope just now) to align it on the way I want it to be, so I improvised. I try to make it look “polished” as much as possible.

I wanted each week to be colored coordinated but lack in materials hindered me. I still don’t have the clear stamps that I wanted because they are expensive here in the Philippines. They cost around Php 850.00 ($17.99) shipping fee still not included.

To add burden to that, I am in the process of buying good quality inks. I find Versamagic gorgeous and cost me only Php 130.00 ($ 2.75) a piece therefore I had them pre-ordered and will probably arrive next month.

Anyway here’s how I did my week one layout. I used the following:

  • Patterned Papers or Cardstocks – got it from Landmark Makati
  • Gold washi tape – bought it in Divisoria (total score!)
  • Banner Alphabet – Studio L2e
  • Hexagon Builder – Studio L2e
  • Brushpens – All from Zig. I used Kuratake, Fudebiyori Metallic and Wink of Stella.
  • A few stickers that I have
  • Doodle by yours truly

I was gunning for a gold theme but I turned out a messy beautiful randomness. Nevertheless I like the outcome and think that I still pulled it off. Oh! By-the-way let me share my January 1 – 3 layout since we’re all here šŸ™‚

filofax_happy_new_year_2016_ferrywritesI love to doodle whenever I lack in stickers, washi or whatever. It makes me feel I am so creative lol!

Now I am off to decorating my week two and you know the drill. I will keep you posted and hopefully I will slowly enhance my decorating skills haha! Ciao for now šŸ™‚
