Gratitude Bullet Journaling | Part 2 | Patricia (UPDATED) November 20, 2019 07:00
Hi Everyone!! I'm excited to be back to show you my progress on my Gratitude Bullet Journaling! You can see my first post here. Below, I have an update to show you the rest of the journaling I added to that first post.
This format of journaling has definitely been the easiest and most enjoyable way to jot down thoughts of thankfulness with a perfect mix of being creative. I used most of the same cut files as I did for that first post, including the Leaf Grid Background.
And Photo Tabs 1
I used the Leaf Grid Background using two shades of ink to blend a background on the left, adhered the Photo Tabs 1 and Leaves 5, then added stamping and journaling. I then went back over the inside of the Leaf Grid Background with a Micron 005 black pen.
Love the added layer and dimension that creates, using the smaller point is just right too.
I stayed with the same color palette I used on my first page, so this keeps this simple but creative enough for me to accomplish for each week. Compared to the first week, all I changed was using softer colors.
For the right side, the third week, I pulled in two new cut files. The Photo Tabs 2.
And the new Grateful Heart, isn't it gorgeous!
I cut the Photo Tabs 2 in the same pattern paper, also repeating the soft color palette, and then stitched them in black thread on sewing machine. The black is repeating the black from my cut files. I love the contrast of the black with the soft colors as well.
I know I will definitely continue adding a leaf from the Leaves 5 cut files. I have that one left for the last week of November. I added my week info at the bottom near the heart.
Before I added the cut file to this page, I used the negative piece from this heart to sponge some ink using a stencil, and also added some stamping within the negative heart piece, then applied my Grateful Heart cut file.
Love the look of the Photo tabs 2 adhered to the left side overlapping (would be great on a layout like this) I added the stamped Nov to the top tab. And then along the top is where I stenciled my journaling lines and bullet acorns. Will have to update this post with the finished four weeks. Really so glad I gave this a try, so doable! Hope you find this inspiring and doable for your bullet journaling or gratitude projects!
Better late than never...I'm updating this post to show the last week of November! I changed the colors just a bit to help tie into my 'this year' page across from it. You can see that here.
