Bulletjournaling has become more important in my life and I want to share it with you guys! I already started a series where I write down all the information I have gathered over the past few months, but from now on I will also showcase pictures (that I also post on my Instagram) and talk more about what keeps me busy.
I talked about collections in my second post about Bulletjournaling and I always love doing this. I like to pick 2 colours and stick with them throughout the entire month. For September I went with purple and green. Flowers are my favorite type of decoration, so I drew a half flower wreath.
I suck at completely TBR piles, but I still like to make one every month and see how far I can come. Most of the times I include the review copies I HAVE to read at some point. I also like to create a list with possible movies/TV shows for that month.
I ended up reading V.E Schwab - The Savage Song and L. Frank Baum - The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. If you try really hard you can see that I planned to watch Reign and Stranger Things: did both things and decided to DNF Stranger Things.
Like with Bookstagram, where you have tons of challenges on Instagram, there are challenges for Bulletjournaling as well. It is a good way to practice new set-ups, collections or to simply practice with your handwriting and different fonts. Another thing I would recommend if you want to practice your writing is to look for Lettering challenges, because they can help to give you inspiration.
Sometimes I want to practice, but drills can get boring, and these challenges give me ideas to use. I like to participate in #Rockyourhandwriting and #Planwithme. This month I tried a new lay-out for Rock your handwriting (inspired by Alexandra_plans) and it worked great. I'm going to keep it. I'm not strict with Plan with me, but I like to join some of the prompts and it is a great way to find new Bulletjournalists.
Here are two examples of how I filled some of the prompts. I did learn a lesson, as you can see with day 8 where I had to write my name several times; I need bigger squares. I could fit 6 days on one page by making 5x8 squares. I think 8x8 will be better for some prompts.
Setting up October.
I love the the last days of the month, so I can start to set up for the new month. For October I messed up the initial 'October', so I added an adorable Zootopia sticker I ordered from Redbubble and created a new header around it. I also added black/white flowers at the bottom and this is my new obsession at the moment.
I love making doodles. It is fun and relaxing! And what I love most about it is that you can make mistakes, because in the overall pictures, you will hardly notice them. I highly recommend picking up a pen and just go with the flow. Don't overthink it. Perhaps start with a few scribbles and see how you can make shapes with them.
The first two pictures are drawings I made in my Bulletjournal. I kept continued the black/white flower theme and I thought it was time to add another motivational quote, so I went with 'be gentle to your precious, little soul.' It's important to remind myself not to be too harsh on myself. Then I made a page where I practiced different headers and I've used it a few times so far. It's easy to refer to when I don't know what to use. The next one I'm going to make is a page with divider ideas.
The last two doodles are made in my sketch book. I decided to draw the same flower over and over again and then I used 5 different shades of blue. The next doodle I did included different elements and I decided to stick with a white border.
That's it for this Bulletjournal recap. Did you like this post and would you like to see more of them?
