Happy New Year JustNick Studio Friends!!  I want to share with you new pages I created in my Canva Bullet Journal.  I might have been late in finishing my gratitude journal I did in November, but I finished it, and you can see the last page here.  

For today's post, I used the new cut file 'this year' with watercolors and stamps to created a title page.

To help the pattern paper stand out more against the white page, I added shading with the watercolors around it and also used a pen to outline it.  I did resize the cut file just a bit to fit my page.

The next page was a full 2-page.  I was going to use the new Funky Mandala cut out in the blue pattern paper, but I decided to continue the inky background but instead of using watercolors as I did on the first page, I used ink pads and a brush.

I first started by using the negative from the pattern paper to brush on color to my background, then I used the positive (the actual cut file) with inks to create more layers.  I used two shades of ink in the lavender tones, but then pulled in a touch of orange.  Also used it with my stenciled on speech bubbles.

I used the new Script Alpha 2 to merge my Word for 2020 "Surrender" in a darker shade of blue pattern paper to stretch across the bottom of both pages, trimming it where needed.

I added my journaling on the far left and right, and filled in the speech bubbles with stickers to finish.

There is no limit to how you can create bullet journaling, and having the cut files gives you stencils, masks, and the cut file to add to them!

Thank you for stopping by!!  I Hope this gives you some idea how to get creative in 2020!  I'll be back to share a Traveler's Notebook spread using that same Funky Mandala!


Gratitude Bullet Journaling | Patricia November 4, 2019 07:00

Hello Everyone!  I am posting on the blog today to share an idea for my gratitude journaling for the month of November in my Canvo Notebook.

I used a combination of JustNick Cut Files along with other stencils and stamps to get my journaling started.  I first used the TN Fall 2 negative from the leaf design to create my background.

I added more stenciling, and then stamping to my background to build layers.  For the focus, I used the Thankful Cut File and backed it with pattern paper and vellum for the hearts so there would be a little see-through.

I created a layered, colorful start to my gratitude journal on the left side.  On the right, I will start journaling, but also love to create or extend the theme.  I used the Leaf Grid Background as a stencil in the center of my page, then added Photo Tabs 1 at the top.  I plan on using a Photo Tab and the Leaves 5 on each page.

I won't journal something everyday.  I like the idea of doing it weekly.  That way I don't create this as a mandatory to-do, but to reflect during the week and identify things to be thankful for:  big or small, really anything!

So my journal is off to a good start and I think it is doable, keeping it to a weekly gratitude journal rather than daily.  Using the cut files as is, as masks or stencils really helped create layers to my journal while keeping it relatively flat too.  I will be back later this month to show how I have progressed!
