One of the things I’ve been incorporating into my bullet journaling lately has been memory keeping, so I thought it would be fun to show you how create a journaling spread using the same colors and collection.
This spread is not water themed, but I did incorporate the same colors as the other two projects. Keeping to an exact theme all month can seem limiting, but there are ways (like using the same colors or a specific element) to keep everything cohesive while mixing it up a little.
I love using pictures in my journaling – I print them from my phone using a portable photo printer with sticker paper. I decided to use the Jane Davenport Die Cutting machine and Cutting Templates to cut some decorative elements out. As my pictures are super colorful, I decided to use chipboard for my die-cuts to keep things from looking too busy.
I’m a little clumsy with stamping – nothing that some shadows (added with the Smooth Markers) can’t handle!
One of the most important parts of a journaling spread is… the journaling. Make sure to leave some defined space while you are decorating so you can go back and let it all out. I emphasized these areas with the Smooth Markers to help them pop off the page.
