As we all know in this amazing Bullet Journaling community, there are no rights and wrongs – each person has their own style, whether it be pared down and simplified or colourful and detailed, both are right and both are fine if that’s the look you want to achieve.
I find that sometimes I want to do more of an ‘art’ page for my dailies and sometimes more journaling – the huge benefit of a blank notebook and a few pens is that you can do exactly that – just turn the page and start afresh.
I still like my pages to be practical though, which is why I always include a weekly page, so that I can see at a glance what I have to do and what I have coming up the following week – although I still include a pop of colour because I can’t help myself!
I also love a bit of washi tape to decorate my pages – in fact, it’s a bit of an obsession with me – it’s all so pretty and there’s so much of it – what’s a girl to do 😉
I do try to stick with a colour theme though as this makes each day stand out so you can see at a glance what you need to do.
My weekly is a bit of a ‘moving feast’ as I amend it as I go and tick off the things I have achieved, adding in other things that come up as the week progresses.
There are so many inspiring accounts on Instagram and my art style pages are put together with ideas from other photos on Instagram and Pinterest that I find to inspire me – particularly @sdionbakerdesign (whom I could never emulate if I tried!) and also @digplans , @helen.c.stark and @jose_naranja (stunning work).
I love to use stickers (and yet more washi) and catalogue the day, filing snippets of my life which are interesting (to me). And that’s the point – I journal because it gives me pleasure, because I like to write a few words on the days events and because I would like to look back in the years to come and smile at the good, the bad and the downright ugly!
Why do you journal? Who’s your inspiration? I’d love to know so please leave me a comment – I may well find some new ‘inspirers’ to follow. Have a great weekend.
