Hello! And it’s me, 3 days older than when you last read my content! 😊
So, I started my bullet journal a little late (12th Jan, to be precise) so I’ve not been able to do everything I’ve wanted to do and I’ve still not managed to set out a spread yet, I’m not very prepared for this month! 🙄 For this post, I’m going to be sharing with you some tips I can share, the pens I’ve used PLUS some exclusive pics that I can’t wait to share with you!
+ page one I wasn’t sure what to do on my first page, I flicked through tons of Pinterest pics, and then I came out with this 😂
+ page two I was kinda stuck for fonts, what do y’all think? I haven’t done an ‘official’ key as I haven’t done a spread yet (kinda bad bad, I know).
+page three this is one of my favourite pages! I’m definitely going to add some pictures to brighten it up, but I just think the firework looks nice against the black.
+page four January title page!! Who knows, maybe I’l add to it?!
+page five Quote page (on the right of the jan cover page), it looks really nice in real life, I’m going to add some colour, I wondered if anybody knew where you could buy those like funky tapes? Just to spice it up.
+page six I got bored and thought I’d do a book log, it’s basically books I’ve read in January, just so I can log it to log it 😜
+page seven as y’all know, I play the violin so this is to tack when I practiced (I kinda took a break on the holidays, I had tonsillitis, a sickness bug and (currently) a cold so violin hasn’t taken much space in my life *nervous laugh*
+page eight Just to track meh daily steps, no harm in that 😊
Well, what did y’all think?
Some things I learnt the hard way…
- Make your journal unique to you! Don’t copy other people’s, take inspiration and make your own design!
- Add as much colour as you want! There’s no limits!
- You can make it as complicated as you want, or as simple as you want!
- Try pre-prep your bullet journal, it helps, ALOT.
- You don’t need any expensive brush pens to make it great, just some fine liners or colouring pencils!
- Pencil before pen! Always draw in pencil, then over in pen!
Here are the pens I used…
Can anybody recommend any pens? I spotted the brush pens (pic below) but I wasn’t sure if they were good, any fellow bujo owners care to share their ways?
Well, thanks for reading guys? Have you started a bullet journal? Are you having trouble knowing which pens to buy?! Care to share, tell me in the comments! 💛
