I have been trying different layouts for my month memories. I wanted them to be colorful, simple, and girly. If you are new to bullet journaling, my best advice is to just try it! Draw anything that comes to your mind, don’t be afraid to make any mistakes. 🙂
If you are a perfectionist or hate the way whiteout look on paper, I suggest you use erasable pens, color pencils, and markers. For the drawings on this page, I used Pilot FriXion Pens, Pilot Frixion Erasable Colored Pencil, and Pilot B2P – Bottle to Pen.
While I was listening to my teacher’s online lecture about the history of genetics, I drew these monthly memories layouts.
Bullet Journal | Three Monthly August Memories Layout
This is how the front page of my monthly layout looks like. I like to put the memories title on the top, the month in the middle, and the year below the month.
Through the month, I like to draw or doodle great things that happen to me during the month.
After I drew the second layout, I decided to add some color to the purple leaves. If I had to re-draw this, I would write the word August smaller to have more room to doodle.
This is my favorite layout! I still put the title on the top of the page, the month’s word in the middle (this time thinner and smaller than the previous drawing), and the year below the month.
I wanted the black color to stand out, I added a gray shadow to the word. I also added beautiful and delicate pink butterflies.
After I took the previous picture, I wanted to see if I could make the butterflies stand out along with the word August. I also added a couple of pink flowers in the background to give the drawing a cute touch.
Layout # 3:
The idea for this layout was to keep it simple. I added a gray shadow to the August word.
I might have added a thin frame to the page, but I didn’t want to ruin it or over do it, so I kept the way I originally drew it.
Let your imagination fly and draw whatever comes to your mind. That’s the secret to creating beautiful bullet journal pages. <3
