Hello everyone, hope you’re all doing well. How was your weekend?
I recently signed up for the Papergang subscription box and enjoyed the style of the items in it so I decided to take some inspiration from it for my August bujo spreads. I opted to use a dusty pink Tombow brush pen for the pink and for my darker colour I used the payne’s grey watercolour brush pen from Winsor and Newton (instead of the somewhat more neon pink used in the calendar print from the box).
I enjoyed doing this spread, starting with the pink leaves and flowers and then offsetting the dark blue/grey layer.
I kept a similar look for the calendar part of my spread and used the payne’s grey for title boxes, writing the titles then white gel pen so they’re visible. For my lists, I mixed up drawing the boxes in payne’s grey and dusty pink, trying not to favour one colour over the other too much.
I do have one extra page in my monthly spread this time, inspired by some list pages I’ve been doing for the past few months where I track books and games I’ve been getting as well as what I’ve actually finished reading/playing. Also there’s the first few days of August on the opposite page – I figured why not split that week up seeing as I hadn’t done much of anything for the first few days of that week. It was a simple spread but it did the job.
But yeah, those are my August pages. Again, I’ve gone a bit more decorative than I have in the past and it took my a little bit of time to work this one out but having done that, it wouldn’t take too long to do again in the future and I imagine it would look good in a number of different colours so it could work for a lot of themes. I’m quite happy with how it came out – let me know what you think of it!
