Bright Sunshine & Tie-Dye Inspired June 2020 Bullet Journal

I am back and had a surge of inspiration to utilize watercolor in my yellow June bullet journal. Check out my sunny tie-dye themed June bullet journal!

I have been MIA lately regarding my personal journal. Due to my increased schedule and stress-load, my creativity became a second priority. Not only did my creativity fall to the wayside, but a global pandemic also hit, and my planner did not get used once during the month of May. However, for some unknown reason (probably the sunshine), I had a sudden and very random surge of inspiration! I absolutely love the summer and do a yellow-theme bullet journal each year. Check out my bright and sunny tie-dye themed June bullet journal, which is also my 2020 month of yellow!

Sunny Tie-Dye Theme

I really enjoy yellow themes and try to do something different using yellow each summer. I could not tell you what sparked my inspiration for this month’s theme, but I got inspired out of nowhere and decided to do a sunny tie-dye theme! You can watch how I created the look in the video above. However, I simply blended yellow, pink, and a light orange together. Then, I dabbed the extra paint off with a paper towel. Finally, I decided to stick with gold lettering and lines to be sure the gentle but bold nature of the yellow was not too distracted from.

Layout Concept & Purpose

I made basically no changes to the layout concept that I have been using all year. The left page is a half-hourly schedule Monday through Saturday and the right page is all-day events, to-dos, and due dates. Saturday and Sunday are split diagonally. What I did do differently this time was to keep the main header the same color as the lines. Then, over top of the gold boxes and borders, I wrong the day of the week and date in black paint pen ink.

Burnt Orange November Bullet Journal Plan-with-Me

Autumn is in full swing and I wanted to celebrate with burnt orange, autumn leaf-colored spread. Keep reading to learn about my struggle and disappointment!

Autumn is in full swing and I wanted to celebrate with burnt orange, autumn leaf-colored spread. I also decided to completely change up my spread. Keep reading to learn about my struggle and disappointment!

The Burnt Orange Theme Process

My goal for my November theme was a burnt orange color to represent falling autumn leaves. I figured I would mix my orange paint with the brown and call it a day. So, I did this. And while the paint was wet, it looked perfect! However, as the paint began to dry, it became a generic orange. I was and still am disappointed, but I do not have time to fix it. Instead, I have accepted this flop and decided not to be upset about it!

I originally used copper colored lines; however, this looked bad and so I replaced it with black ink, even though this made the theme appear even more Halloween based than it already did. Again, this was a disappointment, but I had no time to try to figure anything else out.

The Layout Descriptions

There are two layouts that I generally use for my November spread–a title or hello page and a weekly layout. This month, I decided to spread my hello November page over two pages. I painted them orange and then wrote “November” across the two pages in a white minimal script. Then, surrounding the header are 8 little white falling leaves.

My next spread is completely new this month. Because of the recent changes in my schedule, I needed to create something that would work better for me. So, my weekly spread is broken into two parts. The left page is the schedule. On this page, Monday through Saturday are broken into half-hour segments from 7:00 Am until 10:30 PM. I then color in the time frames in which I have an appointment, session, plan, etc. Above this section is the header in a white minimal script and orange covers the background.

The right page of my weekly set-up is similar in that the background is orange and the week number is in white. However, this page is broken up into six boxes with the sixth box broken into two. The first 5 boxes represent Monday through Friday and the sixth is Saturday and Sunday split by a diagonal line. This page will be used for all-day events, due dates, and daily to-dos.
