Like many others, I am so excited to start fresh in 2021. My January bullet journal set up represents a mini- departure from last year’s notebook, in that I am attempting to draw more minimalist spreads that still make me feel like I’ve had a chance to “do some art.”
I created a really fun quote page using line art and a quote from Susan Hill (see above) during my yearly setup, and I loved the style of it so much that I mimicked it for my January setup! I added some florals and a fun color scheme and voila, my January spreads were born.
Interestingly enough, there weren’t very many kinky-coily-curly-haired line art female figures online to use as references, so I had to improvise a bit.
Watch my quick video flip through below!
I love how this month turned out – I say that almost every month, but I really do think this is my favorite of all the spreads I’ve ever created.
Here are a few still shots of some of the pages for this month…
I’m a big, big fan of this Leland Jacob’s poem and was so excited to be able to include it this year!
Do you all see my meal planner spread? It’s new this year, I’m hoping that it will inspire me to cook more, eat out less, and just always have a ‘healthy’ option in hand.
Also, can we talk about how much my hand lettering is improving; like I literally started doing this in December!
Happy New Year y’all! I’ll see you a bit later in the month with some of my weekly setups.
