2021 Bujo – March daily record

I’ve continued the birches + sunset theme on the month record spread. This is the page where I record day to day things, some in advance as reminders, but mostly afterwards so I can look back and see what I cooked last week or how long it is since I went for a run!

As I mentioned on my title page post last weekend we still have snow around here so this theme is currently appropriate. In the last week however we’ve had several warm days so I am thinking April’s theme might include flowers or leaves! For this spread I used the same method as for the title page where I masked trees and branches with post-it tape, masked a hill at the base then blended memento ink over the masking to create a sunset sky. After removing the post-it tape I outlined the edges of the the trees, added markings and branches in black then shading with a grey marker.

The layout is one week per trimmed page; you can see on the photo below that I cut off a portion of two pages so I would have ample room to write daily notes and still see the birches from each page.

I reduced the amount of habit tracking this month as I already have app on my phone to record water consumption and one for any exercise I do. Tracking things in two places isn’t really worth my time. I mentioned when I first wrote about this bullet journal that I want the practice of bullet journaling to help me stay on top of things rather than just be a pretty notebook. Do you keep track on paper or digitally or maybe a mix of the two like me?

    Wow these pages are just gorgeous! The colors just jump at me! I’m in awe that you drew the trees and did them so well. I have kept track of a few things but nothing like the organized and beautiful way you do it.

    I’m loving these birches and the gorgeous sunsets, Heather! I keep a journal but nothing fancy. I do good to record what I’ve done.

    I love these birches for the monthlly record again in fantastic colours Heather and love the idea of cutting two of the pages down so you can see this wonderful artwork. I am absolutely hopeless at keeping any sort of diary. My husband does and we have a calendar in the kitchen on which we write things we need to remember, appointments and upcoming birthdays etc. x

  4. […] used the same technique for this page that I described in previous birch + sunset posts here and here. One unexpected outcome of reusing the post-it tapes for four different pages was some pretty blue, […]
