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.

November Bullet Journal | Gold & Geometry Plan-with-Me

November Bullet Journal Theme | Gold & Geometric Washi Tape

As I mentioned, November’s theme is gold and geometric washi tape. Nearly all of the gold involved comes from Pentouch gold paint marker, the remainder of the gold is found on the washi tape. The washi tape involved is a pink, orange, teal, and black geometric design with a little bit of gold foil. I found this washi tape on an Etsy shop called PlayingWithColor2. The entirety of the month’s layouts are centered around these two products. I also chose to stick with cursive fonts for the most part.

November Layouts

The title page of this month features the washi tape horizontally through the page slightly north of the mid-mark. The tape is laid out so that the gold bit is at the top like a shelf. “November” is written in a fun cursive in gold.

For each of the weekly layouts, I used a black print ink for the main headers and gold cursive for the letters which represent the days of the week. The left and right page edges are lined with the geometric washi tape with the gold bits facing the edge of the pages. The first week is different than the rest of the weeks. For the first week I kept my lines the same way they were last month; however, I changed it up for the remaining weeks. I kept only the corners of the columns and the full horizontal line for the subsequent weeks.
