Inside My Bullet Journal


Hey, young bloods!

Over the past few months, I've been getting more and more into bullet journaling and art journaling. What are these, you may ask?

A bullet journal is a journal/planner mixture where people document what they did every day, monthly goals, to-do lists, etc through bullet point lists, colorful pens, and aesthetic stationery.

An art journal is a type of journal where people document their thoughts and feelings through collages, drawings, and other artsy fun stuff.

Most people who do bullet or art journaling, including myself, do a mixture of the two types. Today, I thought I'd share a few favorite pages from my own bullet journal! :)

Well, that's all for today! Do you have a bullet or art journal? How's it coming? What do you fill your pages with? Comment below, and have a lovely day <3

Namarië,
Ellie

  1. I wanted to bullet journal too but I ended up mashing it with a planner. I just write things I have to do and I keep track of random things like money I've spent, chapters I've studied, days of my period etc. It's nowhere near as artsy as this! You should share more pages from your bullet journal :)

  2. This is so beautiful! I've wanted to do something like that as well but I'm afraid my artistic skills are nowhere good enough to make looking through them later pleasurable. :P

    1. Thank you! Honestly, mine required very little artistic skill to do. I mainly used washi tape, stickers, and colorful pens to make it pretty, not actual skill at all. XD

    1. Thank you very much, but I'm sure you could! And like I said to Skylar, you don't have to be artistic for your journal to look nice! Just writing in colorful pens and sticking washi tape at the bottom of pages can go a long way :)

  6. I keep meaning to start a bullet journal, but I want to use one of the ones where the pages don't have lines, but squares. I think they're called graphing notebooks or something? I just think it looks better. More uniform, I guess.

    And I wish I had your handwriting. I'm the only one that can read mine because it's a a weird, mutated cursive.

  7. Your journal is amazing! I love your handwriting too. XD I have an art journal, and another one that's kind of a mix between a bullet journal and one to scratch my thoughts down on, but they're not as neat as yours. :D

  8. The height of my artistic talent is drawing a reasonably good stick man. That is it. When I was younger I used to always keep journals, and though I never heard of it until now it sort of fits the criteria for a bullet journal. Your art looks so good! I especially like the 'I love...' one you did! (Because spiral staircases, am I right?)

  12. To be honest, I am absolute crap at holding a bullet journal. Eventually, I make it something completely different or I find a new journal hahaha! I love your journal though, it's so personal and so sweet! <3

  14. Oh I love it!! I really want to start bullet-journalling, but I just don't know if I'd stick to it. *howls* I do plan to try in 2017 though! It'll be my project for sure. :D And I really want to make mine reading themed, because I read so much so it'd be great to keep track of things like that EEEP. I love your drawings :D
