Hello everyone, and welcome to my July Setup of my Bullet Journal. As I did in June, today I’ll show you how I designed this month’s layout.
For July, I chose a bit of a vintage style that reminded me of old children’s books: something very bucolic, drawn in fine lines, that was soothing to the eye. Because in the end, you guys, bullet journaling seems so overwhelming (with all of those AMAZING drawings on Instagram of really talented people) that I needed to step aside from those flowers and tropical trees that everybody is doing right now and to focus on something simple that gave me joy.
That’s why I chose to draw this simple tea party between miss Rabbit and signorina Bird. Even though it seems not very difficult , I took a very long while to make the shape of a bunny – to the point that I had to search on YouTube for a video which could help me.
All of my pages for July have the same simple black and white layout that you see below. The decorations on the top of every page are a reference to the tea party depicted above, with all of the items and foods that were served by miss Rabbit 🐰.
Overall, my style of drawing is very simple and it is not very fancy, but I gotta admit that it gives me such a pleasure to make these sketches that I think I’m going to keep this style for a few more months.
I recently thought that it would be interesting to color these little images… however I’m so happy with the results that I don’t know if this might change the clean style… What do you think? Some pastels colors might be interesting , right?
So, what did you think? I feel like even if I have reduced the space to write my daily chores, I can still fill a lot of stuff there, without feeling overwhelming. It’s clean, cute and made me very happy drawing all of those pages!
I hope you have enjoyed my July’s setup!
Lots of love
