In today's post I'll show you the 3 layouts I’m using for my weekly spreads in my bullet journal for August, and how I've decorated them.
I tend to have 3-4 layouts for my weekly spreads which I rotate during the month. And of course I try to make them more interesting by decorating them according to that month’s theme. For August the theme is 'Boho Feathers'.
This is my first monthly spread of August. You can see exactly how I've set it up in this video.
The second spread is a classic one that I'm using every month. It gives me a lot of space to add all the things I want, plus I can use the space on the left page for doodling (like I did) or to add more sections if I need to.
I kept the colours very simple and pastel, as always. I think it's very important to decide which colour palette you're going to use for your theme from the beginning. It makes things easier, and more consistent.
You can find all the supplies I used at the end of this post.
The third weekly spread is again a vertical layout. I always like to add accent lines in my spreads. I think it adds colour without too much effort and makes things more coherent. I usually choose pastel colours that won't interfere with my writing. And this week I also changed a bit my title banners for them to fit with the theme.
Adding various elements of your theme to your spreads, makes things more interesting and less monotonous. So, when you choose a theme, think of all the elements and doodles you can create - like an inspiration board. For this theme, I had to add various different beads and feathers throughout my spreads.
For the last weekly of the month, I decided to go with one of my favourite weekly layouts. I love that it separates your to-do list in categories, and you have the option to change the categories and also add more, if you wish.
So, these are the 3 weekly layouts for August. I hope you liked this post and that you found some inspiration for your own weekly layouts. If you liked the theme and you'd like to recreate it, please send me some pictures. I'd love to see your pages!! You can always contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
