Bullet journalling is a popular system for organising your life, but it’s also a fun way to express your creativity. Bullet journals allow you to get all of your thoughts, ideas and feelings onto paper, and you can even use them to manage stress.
Bullet journal spreads are pages that are designed to help you plan and track your goals, tasks, and habits. They are practical, but that doesn’t mean they can’t look great too. Here are some tips for creating beautiful bullet journal spreads.
Choose a theme
The first step in creating a beautiful bullet personalised journal spread is to choose a theme. The theme can be anything that you like such as nature, travel, or even your favourite TV show or film.
Once you have chosen your theme, you can use it to inspire your layout and design choices. If you need some help, have a look online and see how other people have created their bullet journal spreads.
Plan your layout
Before you start drawing, plan your layout. You can use paper and a ruler to sketch out your design, or a digital planner app to create a mock-up.
Taking time to plan your layout will help you to visualise how your spread will look and make sure that everything fits together nicely.
Adding colour to your bullet journal spread can make it more visually appealing. You can use coloured pencils, markers, or even watercolours to add colour to your pages.
Choose colours that complement your theme, or use a colour scheme that speaks to you.
Add decorative elements
Adding decorative elements to your bullet journal spreads can make them more interesting and attractive. Try using stickers, washi tape, or stamps to decorate to your pages. Just make sure that the decorative elements you choose fit your theme.
Use hand lettering
Hand lettering is a fun way to add a personal touch to your bullet journal spreads. You can use different fonts and styles to create headings, subheadings, and captions. There are many tutorials online that can help you to improve your hand lettering skills.
Experiment with different styles
There are lots of different styles of bullet journal spreads, such as minimalist, floral, or vintage. Experiment with different styles to find something that suits you and works for you. You can also combine different styles to create a unique look.
Don’t be afraid to make mistakes
Remember that your bullet journal is your personal space; there are no rules. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes or try new things. If you don’t like something, you can always cover it up with a sticker or a piece of paper.
By following these tips, you can create beautiful bullet journal spreads that are both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Remember to have fun and be creative when creating your bullet journal.
