Orange Watercolor August Bullet Journal Plan-with-Me

For August, ,I made a lot of changes and added a lot of new spreads. You will surely love my orange watercolor August 2020 bullet journal spread.

August is my favorite month of the year. There is really only one reason for this; it’s my birthday month. Regardless, I always try to do a bright, happy, and enjoyable theme for my August spreads. This August is no different as I went with a nice bright orange watercolor theme. In addition to the theme, I made some spectacular changes to my normal layouts and added a lot of new spreads. You will surely want to scroll down and read about my orange watercolor August 2020 bullet journal spread.

Tools Used

Orange Watercolor Theme Breakdown

When I decided to create this month’s theme, my goal was to do something similar but different than my Tie-Dye June theme. However, it ended up being far closer to June than intended. I did a mixture of yellow and orange watercolor paint and tried to blend it around. My goal was for this month to be more orange than yellow and to be more watercolor than tie-dye; however, it was less like intended.

Regardless, I do really enjoy my August theme, even though it is very similar to June.

Orange Watercolor August 2020 Layout Explanation

For August, I decided to make a few important changes to my layout structure. First, I decided to add a border with no paint to the cover page. This is less important than the next change however.

The past few months I have not been utilizing my hourly schedule really at all. So, I decided to get rid of this portion all together and instead, combined two weeks together. This change saved space and ink. I really enjoy this change and am considering making it a more long-term change than I had originally intended it to be.

Additional Layouts Updated & Added

This month I made some organizational changes to how I run ElizabethJournals behind the scenes. I also did some organizing of my thoughts and content for ElizabethPlants. In doing this I created a few content calendars to help inform my daily and weekly to-dos. Additionally, I updated my original content calendar by adding an email content calendar to the right.

Content Calendar & Email Topic Calendar

The first change I made was to my original content calendar. I added a few items to the bottom row which specify when I post on YouTube and on what day of the week I post a new planner kit. Further, I made this change to be more consistent on YouTube and to be better about posting planner kits more often!

Then, to the right of those changes, I created something similar but for email topics. I tend to be very lazy about my emails and I wanted to be more organized and consistent with the types of emails i send. This prompted some technical changes to how my email list is organized as well as adding this lovely schedule to inform my to-do list.

YouTube Content Calendars

The next calendars I created include my calendars for both YouTube accounts I run (ElizabethJournals & ElizabethPlants). There are slight differences between the two calendars. Mainly, the calendar for ElizabethPlants includes a list of ideas and key I created the key for ElizabethPlants because that channel is monetized and frequently sponsored. These details do not apply for ElizabethJournals as much.

Shop & Resource Library Content Calendars

I have lumped these final two calendars together because I created them nearly identically. Essentially they are the same as the video calendar for ElizabethJournals. However, the content for these two calendars is housed on instead of a third party site.

Bright Pink Watercolor July 2020 Plan-with-Me

I am a huge fan of paint in my bullet journal. Let's talk about my bright pink watercolor July 2020 bullet journal layout.

I was inspired for my July spread almost immediately after creating my June tie-dye spread. Naturally, I am a huge fan of paint in my bullet journal and I decided to use it this month as well. This article walks through the creation of this spread, shows the creation, discusses concept and theme, and lists the products that I used. Let’s talk about my bright pink watercolor July 2020 bullet journal layout.

Tools Used

Bright Pink Watercolor Theme Breakdown

The initial plan was to do a sort of tie-dye look like I did in June but with pinks. However, I did not use enough water and when I started blotting the paint it started having a sort of weathered look. Then, when I tried to replicate the weathered or tie-dyed looks in the weekly spreads it was a fail. However, I still love the overall bright pink textured watercolor look.

Bright Pink July 2020 Layout Explanation

The layouts this month are identical to every month in 2020; however, colors and tools used do change monthly. This month, I chose to stick with black and white lines and headers instead of using gold like I have the first six months of this year. I decided to break away from that box. I created the main header on the cover page with both 2mm and 1mm black paint pens. Then, the same is true for the weekly. I outlined the boxes with 2mm and the headers with a 1mm black paint pen. Then, I drew in the subheaders for the weekdays with a very thin white gel paint pen. I love the way this turned out!

10 Black Paper Bullet Journal Layout Ideas

Using black paper in bullet journaling is such a cool and unique style! Here are 10 different bullet journal spreads on black paper to help you get started!

The use of black paper in bullet journaling is not super common but is such a cool and unique paper type! The use of black paper originates with the fun childhood gel pen art notebooks. It has moved its way over to bullet journaling. Because it is less common, it can be difficult to find inspiration for the use of black paper instead of white paper. One way to combat this is to take a white paper inspiration and invert it in editing software to see how it looks. However, there are a number of amazing black paper journalers out there. Here are 10 different bullet journal spreads on black paper to help you get started!

Brown Embroidery on Black Paper

I love the use of both black and brown shades in this spread. The tan-brown shades really pop! Also, it appears as though the floral center is embroidered on which is really neat.

Flowers in Space

What I find so cool about this particular spread is the use of paint and texture. The lines are clean and simple. However, the center is super textured and almost watercolor-y but it is not watercolor. Super unique!

Fridayest Friday

Quote pages are a fan favorite and can be a great way to fill empty space! Here is a super fun Friday-themed black paper quote page!

Black Paper Galaxy

Of course with black paper, it would be natural to create a galaxy themed spread! The background is already dark, now all you would have to do is add the stars and planets! Here is just one great way to use a galaxy theme!

November in Black

Archer and Olive really are a great example of utilizing black backgrounds and pages. They create some really cool floral-themed spreads on both black and white flawlessly! Not only is this layout super inspirational, but their entire Instagram is.

Hello August

One galaxy-themed layout is simply not enough! Check out this outter-space-themed spread! I love the little planet doodles and the quote!
