PLAN WITH ME – August 2017 Bullet Journal Setup


As you may already know, I started Bullet Journaling a few months ago. I got inspired by a lot of bloggers and vloggers. They inspired me so much that I decided to purchase my Bullet Journal. And every they tell you about Bullet Journaling is so true:

You can keep track of your business. Think about income, expenses, time management, batch days, etc.

Bullet Journaling is also a great way to keep track of your personal life: Habit Tracker, Mood Tracker, Meal Plans, planning, etc.

And Bullet Journaling also helps you to unleash your creativity since you can design it in every way you want. Want to work with watercolors? Add some washi tape? Add Polaroid photos? No problem at all.

That is why I like a Bullet Journal so much. It can be anything you want. That means you really can unleash your creativity with it.

In today’s blog post I will show you how I set up my Bullet Journal for the month August. I decided to go for my favorite theme: The Ocean. And I also gave myself a little challenge: I challenged myself only to use two different kinds of materials. For this setup, I only used watercolors and fine liners. That means I drew everything with fine liner without sketching.

I had a lot of fun doing this challenge since I was able to let go of perfection and just have fun. I encourage you to create a challenge like this too since it will help you free your mind and relax.
