I was on a roll when I was making my July pages so I kept going and thought I would take advantage of the momentum.  So far my layouts have been different for each week and that is because I am trying to find a layout I am comfortable with.  I will probably settle on a basic layout and stick with that for a bit. Until then I am having fun creating new spreads and trying new looks.

Here is my layout without all the fancy stuff added.  You can see that the ink from the other side comes through quite a bit.  I was thinking of trying smoky slate and see if that helps.  I will keep you posted about that experiment.

I used my Zig markers to do a lot of the coloring, they seem to work well as long as I don’t over do it.  

Magnolia Layout

This week I chose to use the Good Morning Magnolia stamp set and matching washi tape.  What I learned with this spread is that the Black ink bleeds a bit. I used some Prismacolor markers for all the outlines.  If the ghosting on the other side really bothers you, you can skip pages in between. Since this is just an experiment, I will just keep going without skipping pages in between. In the upper right corner I decided to add a scripture. I like to collect quotes and note scriptures in my journals.  I am thinking I will probably add one here or there that I would like to remember.  The daily routine trackers are smaller and I think I like them small like that. Across the top is a strip of washi tape. I like the look of the border across the top. This may be something I do a lot more, especially since I have several rolls of washi that need to be put to good use.  This spread was fun to make and didn’t take all that long to finish. 

Also, If I do stick to this bullet journal method of planning I think I will try and find a notebook that won’t allow the ink to bleed so much. 

Thank you for stopping by today.  I hope you have a great day!

This week we had the challenge to create a project that was monochromatic.  Meaning it could only use shades of one color. Michele created a very lovely card using the Garden Lane DSP.  This pack has beautiful designs all incorporating shades of green. Thanks Michele for sharing with us.
