I have really loved getting back into bullet journalling this year, experimenting with simplistic layouts as well as more doodle based spreads. Both set up designs have pros and cons to using them in my monthly spreads. As we are in December and I am reflecting on all things in 2019. I have compiled a list of 5 pages that were my favourite to design in my bullet journal this year.
1. September Front Cover
I enjoyed designing this page although it is simplistic, I like the quote I added to the bottom of the page. I was able to experiment with my lettering and I think it was a great addition to the design. I enjoy using quotes in my bullet journal and notebooks. I had an autumnal theme, with the leaves and used autumnal colours to bring the design together.
2. October Mood Tracker
I have been enjoying using mood trackers in my monthly spreads. I loved designing my October set up. I wanted to use a Halloween theme. I loved designing these cute ghosts, I mean look how cute they are! This was my favourite mood tracker design. This was one of the favourites for my readers on October’s monthly set up too.
3. November Front Cover
I struggled to work out what I would design for November’s front cover. I wanted to have the colours for Autumn. So I thought I would design leaves, with a range of colours to mimic the leaves on the ground. I used different lettering with a drop shadow, I enjoyed this design and so did a lot of my readers of this set up on my blog post.
4. December Front Cover
This was my favourite front cover I have designed in 2019. I just think it is so cute and so Christmassy. I saw the original design on Pinterest by WellElla. It looked beautiful and I wanted to try and recreate the design for my bullet journal, I don’t think I did too badly! I knew I wanted my December monthly set up to be Christmassy. I started using washi tape during December’s set up. I have seen overlapping washi tapes before, so I wanted to try it out. I think it compliments the design well.
5. December Weekly Spread
Like the December front cover being my favourite design, this weekly spread was my favourite weekly spread to design also. I integrated a Christmas tree branch with baubles. It has such a Christmassy feel with lots of colour, which I love. I also used the same overlapping washi tapes throughout December’s set up, it adds texture to each page.
I enjoyed looking back at my bullet journal set ups and designs for 2019. I definitely see a progression in my designs and what I wanted for my bullet journal spreads. I am looking forward to starting new set ups for 2020!
