I am a very consistent person. So, naturally, I stuck with my red theme for December this year. However, I decided to go out of my comfort zone and incorporate glitter! Glitter is not the most functional of themes, but I really like how it ended up looking. Continue reading to learn more about my red and gold glitter December 2020 bullet journal spread.

Red & Gold Glitter Theme Breakdown
I really enjoyed the all-black background on my October bullet journal theme. For this reason, I wanted to test that concept again as a possible theme for my 2021 monthly spreads. So, I chose a crimson red December’s theme. Naturally, I chose gold as the accent color.
I am not entirely sure what inspired me, But I decided it would be amazing for a Christmas month theme to include glitter. I do not care much for glitter; however, this is what I wanted. I mixed in red and gold glitter with the red paint. Then after painting the title page, I realized it needed more. So, I lightly sprinkled some white glitter over top of the painted page. After doing this, I realized it seemed similar to snow or frost, which was very fitting for December.
Naturally, I went with gold versus red for my happy new year layout. Gold is far more fitting for such a layout than crimson red is.
December 2020 Layout Explanation
I believe I have found the most efficient monthly spread that works best for me. This includes a simple and aesthetic cover page and weekly logs. First, the cover is either one or two creative pages. This is purely aesthetic and included because I enjoy creating them. For December, the cover is entirely red glitter paint with gold script lettering and a white glitter dusting.
Then, the weekly logs are each one page with 6 gold-outlined boxes to represent the days of the week (the sixth box covers the weekend. The weekly logs follow the same paint structure of the cover pages: red glitter paint, gold script lettering, and a white glitter dusting.
Finally, I added a “happy new years” cover page to the odd weekly page. This is a gold glitter painted page with black script lettering. This serves as another aesthetic and creative page. I like the way it is both separate and complementary to the entirety of my monthly spread.
