Today, I want to share with you my bullet journal pages for the month of May. This was 2 weeks in the making and I hope you guys like it!
This month’s theme is succulents. I recently bought stickers and I want to put them to use immediately! Succulents are probably easy to draw, but I really want to get the multi-color effect to be perfect with the least amount of effort! Haha These stickers I used for the cover page have light and pastel like colors, which I really liked. I used big block letters to indicate the month and didn’t color it in because I wanted the colors of the succulent to stand out more. I used Pigma Micron 005 and 01 on all of these pages.
My monthly log is different this month. I decided to make it all in one page and in landscape format. I used trimmed washi tape for the days of the week and decorated the blank spaces with more of the succulent stickers I used in the cover page. I used a date stamper for the dates for a neater look.
The next page contains my habit tracker, which had decreased immensely; My to-do list, bake list and blog list, which was usually on the same page as my monthly log; And a simple mood tracker wheel. I will be using different shades of green Tombow dual brush pens for different moods. I incorporated more succulent stickers on this page and used the same date stamper.
On the adjacent page is my meal planner. I switched it up a bit this month by segregating the columns for breakfast, lunch and dinner. As usual, I have post-its for my grocery and market list on top.
I used a letter stencil for the headers on these pages.
These are my journal pages. As I’ve mentioned last month, I didn’t want it to be so structured anymore. Well… I did that for the first week! The succeeding pages are left blank for more free form journaling.
Week 1: I divided the page in six parts. I used the same set of succulent stickers to indicate the dates and wrote the numbers using a stencil and a Tombow N15. I will be doing the same for the succeeding journal entries.
Week 2: I drew a window with plants, using different sets of stickers because the set I’m using didn’t have bigger pieces.
Week 3 & 4: I bordered the pages with green washi tapes and decorated with hanging succulent plants.
Week 5: I bordered the page with broken lines using a Tombow 133 and added potted succulent plants from the other sets.
