Woodland's Paradise Scene Sticker Kit PWM Tutorial
Need help creating your Woodland's Paradise planner scene sticker kit? Check out my mini tutorial below! Remember, these scene kits are meant to be flexible so that you can create a scene that fits your planner type best. So get creative and have some fun!
Adhere the Days of the Week Stickers
One of my favourite parts about the Woodland's Paradise scene kit is the headers because they're not a traditional box header but rather have a kiss cut around the umbrella shape. I think that this adds a little bit of movement to the planner spread so that it's not so boxy.
Paste the Floral Headers Onto the First Three Rows of Your Spread
If you noticed, the first row in the new 2020 ECLP headers have rounded corners, so I always recommend whiting out those rows to ensure you don't have any colours bleeding through under the rectangle headers.
Remember Those Trackers!
I always like to have two trackers on my spreads to ensure I'm accountable for workouts (self-isolation and time away from the gym makes it more challenging to exercise. Anyone with me?) as well as one other goal I have for that week. This week, I'm tracking screen time and trying to ensure I'm not on my phone after 7:30 p.m. I find that my migraines are triggered by too much screen time, and in this new world of COVID-19, I'm either always on my work laptop or my shop laptop and phone. So, I'm really hoping I'll stay on top of reducing my screen time.
Laying The Right and Left Washi
To get that fun layered look in your planner, you need to layer the washi strips on top of one another. To do so, I recommend placing the top sticker washi on the footer of your planner and measuring where the lowest point on the sticker is. In this case, it's the little crevices between the trees. What you'll want to do is mark your planner with a pencil (I used my tweesers) and then place the bottom washi down first (the mountains) so that when you layer the top washi on top, you don't see any white space underneath.
I use the same approach for the left washi: mark the lowest spot on the tree washi, which is on the far right-hand side by the lavender path because that's where you'll want to place the base of the mountains. Once the mountains are in the right spot, you can add the tree and path washi over top.
If you accidentally placed the bottom washi too far up, don't worry as you can usually peel the sticker off (assuming you haven't put a ton of pressure on it) and then re-adhere it to the page. In the event that you can't peel off the washi, just place the top washi in position so that you don't see any white space and then you can add your favourite thin washi strip at the very base of your planner so that it looks like it was placed this way deliberately because can you ever have too much washi on your spread, right?!
Get Out Your White Out Roller!
To get that true scene look, you're going to need your white out roller. I usually use it after I've placed down my washi strips so that everything above the strips is white. This means that you should get rid of those vertical lines so that when you place the art deco, the lines don't interfere with your spread.
Have Fun with the Art Deco!
My favourite part of building a planner scene spread is adding the art deco because this is where you can truly get creative with how you layer on your art deco. In this video, I've layered them on based on the planner spread shown in the product listing, but I encourage you to do your thing as what works for one planner style may not always work for another.
The last art deco stickers I added were the clouds because I find it's easier to place them once I'm happy with my planner scene. I also added some additional art deco characters in my boxes to finish the look.
Complete Your Spread with Full Boxes & Functionals
You will all have your own process for how you want to plan, so don't worry if your process doesn't align with mine. Ultimately, planner spreads are meant to be creative and to show off your own personal spread so it really doesn't matter how you get to the end as long as you're happy with the final look.
I tend to be fairly consistent with how I apply my functionals, so I like to add in my to do's first because those are the most important part of my week. On days when I know I need to make a special note or add more details than a little bullet, I'll add in the half and quarter boxes and then make them pretty with a bow! Where ever I have an empty space, I add in some full boxes for some additional colour and design. And voila! That's it! Now my spread is complete.
