Red & Gold Mosaic December Bullet Journal Plan-with-Me

This month I decided to use red and gold as my main theme. Keep on reading to learn more about my bullet journal and how I created it!

Each month I create a new theme for my bullet journal. This month I decided to use red as my main theme. I added gold and decided to use mosaic stamps. Keep on reading to learn more about my bullet journal and how I created it!

The Red and Gold Mosaic Theme Process

I have always done red and gold as a theme for December because of the holidays. Further, I prefer not to do red and green, its just not my favorite combination of colors. This year, because I have already done a gold theme in February, I stuck with red as the main color. Then, because in the past few months I have done more solid painting, I chose to use the mosaic stamps. Lastly, as usual, I chose gold for my metallic and for all of the lines and headers. The gold is difficult to see over the mosaic, but that does not bother me and I did not want to use black.

The Layout Descriptions

This month is very similar to that of my November bullet journal set-up. For the title page, I mimicked that of my April spread. Red mosaic stamps cover the majority of the page. Then, in the upper third of the page, I have used the ink pad to create a more solid red area. In this area of solid red, I wrote the header in a gold minimal script font. Then, on the top and bottom of the solid red area, I bordered in gold as well.

Following the hello December page is my weekly spread. This spread is split into two distinct parts. The first part, or left page, includes a half-hourly tracker from 7:00 AM until 10:30 PM. This page includes Monday through Saturday. The second, or right page, includes 6 rectangles. Each of these boxes represents a day of the week, and I split the sixth into two for Saturday and Sunday. The left page is meant to track my schedule by the half-hour; whereas, the right page is for my all-day events, holidays, due dates, and daily to-do’s.

The final part of my December bullet journal set-up is the Christmas gift tracker. This year, I spent very little time on this layout and did not intend for it to be very beautiful. First, I coated the background in red watercolor paint. Next, I roughly outlined the circles in gold and drew the header on in a minimal gold script. Finally, I connected the circles, which are meant to be Christmas bulbs, to the top of the page with red. The gold and red are both difficult to see; however, the layouts is functional. Next, I titled each circle in red script lettering. The purpose of this page is to list Christmas gift ideas according to each person I have to shop for.
