If you have been around for a while, you may have noticed that I love the use of watercolor in my bullet journal layouts. I use both paint and pen as well as brush pens. This unique form of paint can be used in so many different ways to enhance your planning spread. If you have never used watercolor before, I highly recommend you give it a shot. Here are 30 bullet journal layouts that use watercolor fearlessly!
This layout is super fun because of the use of a fun font in addition to the splatter effect of the paint. Also, I just love the way watercolor moves on its own and creates such unique patterns and shapes.
One Word per Day by @bujo.by.anouk
I love “one word per day” layouts because they are really whatever you make them. Further, this one used washi tape to leave white spaces in the paint to write in words. This is such an amazing idea.
The blending in this layout is gorgeous and such a great way to bring in a new month! Also, the lettering is beautiful.
Here is a beautiful art page. Further, I love a good art page added to a bullet journal planner.
This layout just goes to show you that watercolors can be used in any type of page, even lecture notes! Additionally, the doodling and lettering are beautiful.
Hello June Splattered Watercolor by @lacqueredworld
