Sometimes I have empty pages in my bullet journal and there is no such thing as a wasted page in a bullet journal. Have you got empty pages and no ideas on how you can fill them? If so, this post is for you. I am going to share 5 creative ways you can fill your empty bullet journal pages.
Practising doodles is a great way to fill empty pages in your bullet journal. I am by no means an artist, but I love to doodle. So using an empty page I have in my bullet journal to practise is a fun creative activity and it definitely makes my bullet journal a lot more artsy. I like using doodles to decorate my weekly spreads throughout my journal, so using the blank spaces means I can experiment with designs and colours.
2. Washi Tape Swatches
Not only is this a good way to fill empty pages in your bullet journal but a great way to use some washi tapes. I like to swatch my washi tapes, so I can refer back to them when designing my weekly spreads. It is so much easier than routing through all my washi tapes.
3. Title Designs
When designing weekly spreads and trackers I like to experiment with different ways to title the page. Using an empty page to trial different writing styles with different pens and colours. Finding fun ways to title pages, can make your bullet journal look colourful and creative.
4. Brush Lettering Practise
I have recently started practising my calligraphy and brush lettering. I love how beautiful the lettering looks in journals and how pretty and elegant it can make the layouts. I have recently brought a Tomboy Dual Brush Pen and a Tombow Fudenosuke Pen. Practise makes perfect as they say! I have a variety of different brush pens in different colours, so I can design a variety of styles. You can see some of my lettering in my posts I shared here and here.
5. Gratitude List
Using a page to write down a list of what I am grateful for, is a great way to fill an empty page. It allows me to reflect on the positives and how lucky I am. This idea works so well especially if I am having a bad day or my anxiety is bad, I can read my list and reflect on positivity and focus my mind. You could also use this idea to list things that make you happy or activities that make you feel happy.
What ways do you like to fill empty pages in your journal? Have you used any of my 5 examples? I’d love to hear in the comments.
