August 2019 Weekly Spreads ๐Ÿ‘ Bullet Journal Setup Pt. 2

This is part 2 of August 2019's bullet journal setup with summery peaches theme! I'll show you 4 different weekly spreads to keep you productive all month long!

I always like to show a mix of different weekly spread layouts because everything works for each person differently. Plus, itโ€™s fun to mix it up and experiment so that I can discover new layouts that I love, while playing with colors and art supplies :)

I just love those orange and blue colors together. Looking at them in my journal makes me so happy!

Make sure to watch the video for a full tutorial of the spreads!

๐Ÿ‘ August Bullet Journal Setup | Plan With Me with Free Printable

So I know that this monthโ€™s theme can be a littleโ€ฆ raunchy given the new meaning the ๐Ÿ‘ emoji now has online ๐Ÿ˜…๐Ÿ˜… But what can I say? I love a little bit of controversy and I definitely LOVE fresh, juicy โ€ฆ PEACHES, ok? Get your head out of the gutter, man!

I went all out with the illustration and coloring this month, covering my pages with different drawings of peaches and shading them in with pastel pencils (you can also use colored pencils for this). I really, really love the effect of a mix of an illustrative and a graphic look.

I turned my cover illustration into a free printable. You can sign up for my free email newsletter here to get the download link.

Other pages I included this month are a gratitude log, a โ€œfavoritesโ€ page for me to fill in at the end of the month, a goals page (one of the four journaling ideas from my last video), and a braindump page.

๐ŸŒปJuly Bullet Journal Setup ๐ŸŒป Pt. 2 | Weekly Spreads, Trackers, Gratitude

This is part 2 of July 2019's bullet journal setup with a sunflower theme! I'll show you 5 different weekly spreads, a gratitude page, and my habit trackers.

There are lots of elements on these pages, because I really wanted to create a collaged, layered look. This includes illustration, stickers, patterned paper, old book pages, washi tape, and inked blackout panels. I also wanted to create some simpler, but still colorful, options as well.

Make sure to watch the video for a full runthrough of the spreads!

๐ŸŒปJuly Bullet Journal Setup Pt. 1 | Sunflowers | Plan With Me ๐ŸŒป

Hey guys, hope youโ€™ve all been enjoying your summer so far! I feel like it was strawberry season just yesterday, but now things like summer sunflowers are popping up everywhere. I thought this would be a perfect theme for a July bullet journal, and to mix things up a bit, I decided to also incorporate lots of other elements to create a fun collage style this month.

For my cover page, I drew a few sunflowers from different points of view: straight on, from the side, and from the back. I like how realistic this makes the arrangement look. I also scattered around some drawings of sunflower seeds. For a detailed tutorial on how to draw and color these sunflowers, check out the video!

Then, I brought in lots of color and texture by finding some fun stickers and washi from my stationery collection. Come on, Iโ€™m sure you guys have some stickers youโ€™ve been hoarding that would be perfect for this! I used some letter stickers for the title, and also ripped out a page from an old book. I love the texture and vintage feel this gives the page, and itโ€™s the perfect addition to the illustrations.

For the next spread, which is the large monthly calendar, I wanted to shake things up even more and created a completely inverted calendar! I started by mapping out the shape of the calendar days, and then went to town with my black marker to completely fill this in. I know, itโ€™s a bit scary. And youโ€™re probably wondering if it bled through to the other sideโ€ฆ surprisingly, not much at all!! I was really pleasantly surprised that I could only see the shadow of the shape, but no bleeding. (I used my black Crayola supertip marker in my Leuchtturm1917 journal. The results might be different if you use a different marker/journal combo, of course!)

Again, I added some sunflower illustrations along with some seeds, and then added my ripped book page and letter stickers. On the other side of the page, I found a piece of patterned paper with a vintage grid background that I thought would be the perfect space for my to-do list. I like that this gives dimension to the page, but it is still completely usable. If you donโ€™t have patterned paper, you could try using grid paper, have some fun staining some stationery with tea, or simply draw a box as you normally would. I finished the page off with some more stickers and washi tape.

I hope you these July spreads gave you some inspiration for your bullet journal, and that you have fun going through your stationery collections to see what you can add to your pages! Be sure to tag me on instagram (@michelleyuen_) if you create something based on my spreads, because Iโ€™d love to see them and cheer you on!
