January- June 2018
Here are a few spreads from my 2018 bullet journal. I just used a random notebook that I had lying around which just happened to be one I picked up on my last trip to France. I designed the cover myself using some lightweight yarn I got on my Mini-moon to Edinburgh. I used a basic fineliner and a Tombow Duel-brush pen in black and grey (N15 and N75) for these spreads. I love minimalist designs and adding quote pages to my journal.
July- December 2018
When I ran out of space in my first notebook, I got a cheap dotted softcover notebook from Amazon. The size is between A5 and A4 and the pages are of good quality. Because it is a softcover notebook, it is easily customisable. I use my bullet journal to plan out my crafts and hobby time for the month.
I pressed some flowers from my garden in a large hardback book for a few weeks to add more texture to my journal. I have also used gold and silver gel pens in these spreads as well as soft pastels and washi tape.
Pro tip– fix your pastel drawings with hairspray to prevent smudging.
