Using Bold Gold Paint with black contrast is such a great element to have together . I loved how three different fonts are used together in balance and harmony. This page is a great example of rhythm.
Using watercolor is the first thing that comes to my mind when kickstarting from blank white page .
I loved this piece of art . The color palette is very cool with little touch of yellow that pops on the page . Use of bold fonts are the best choice here as it brings a lot of attention to dates and month .Another important factor in this piece is play of light and shadow that brings a little touch of realism .
An amazing piece which tells you that brush pens are just enough to add colors to your artworks. A very simple and minimal page that spreads happiness with its mushroom hut. I liked how APRIL is written here .
A very beautiful page full of flowers with bright colors and strong strokes . I really like dhow the black bold colors are being used for text background with dotted lines that shows connections .The overall page has a great layout with light colors as borders.
Black and white
A very classic theme of black and white is always my go to option when i am confused .
Did you just noticed how weight of lines are used here to make the entire page pop ? I loved that !
Giving your page that 3-D look is the best thing to try when bored . You can use stickers or papers for this look .
Love doodling ?
Try out in your bullet journal . Doodling is the most therapeutic activity to practice.
This simple, minimal layout in a pattern is a very consistent way of showing your doodles .
Here’s a tip :
Select few doodles you like according to your theme and put them on repetition to make a pattern.
winx – favorite character
Try drawing your favorite character . Choosing your favorite show or a character is a great theme to opt.

April tracker inspiration
I loved the idea about how to make yourself accountable to challenges by tracking them on paper . This audiobook challenge can be converted to any other challenge like book challenge , daily writing challenge , reading tracker etc .
I really liked the concept of rainbow relating to changing moods .
Tracking mood is something like self care that I practice on daily basis . Sometimes its hard to know how are you feeling and with these busy its very easy to forget to even ask ourselves how are we ? Tracking your mood is not only just pen to paper but the process of you asking yourself about yourself that makes all the difference .
An essential page for my bullet journal . I keep a digital and physical record of all my expenditure and the most fruitful one is in my bullet journal. The pain of writing my expenses daily actually makes me realize how much i am spending and is it the right place to spend my money .
This page is a complete example of how your weekly log should look like . From tracking your habits to writing about day . The mini calendar at the corner is the cherry on top for productivity .
Here’s a tip :Whenever you are confused about a space or don’t know what to fit in the empty space , try to fit a mini calendar . Bullet journal has a beauty of productivity and adding calendars is the best solution to it . You can always look up to calendar anytime you want and on nearly page . You don’t have to flip to the main calendar every time .
