August Bullet Journal Cover

[2020] Unquestionably, it’s official – 2000’s trends are back! With this in mind, my August bullet journal theme is inspired by Ed Hardy’s designs.

Although the looks were, in general, a little bit in poor taste, I loved it. As a matter of fact, it was a great way to wear a kind of tattoo without having them permanently inked on skin.

With this in mind, I drew a simple rose doodle and add a ribbon banner.

[2018] Every time before I start planning layouts for next month, I choose a theme.

Although it isn’t obligatory, it perfectly suits my obsession with cohesion.

For this reason, I decided to go with the Venice Beach theme for my August bullet journal layout.

Indeed, summer is everything you want it to be – chilling out, relaxing, and full of sand, water, and sun.

Along with this, Venice Beach looks like a place to have a great fun.

With this in mind, I sketched pink VW Van with three decorative surfboards inspired by most instagrammable wall murals. Also, I wrote August with block letters and add drop shadows.

Here you can learn how to doodle with many awesome step-by-step tutorials.

August Bullet Journal Monthly Spread

[2020] This year I decided to go for a classic monthly calendar with a place for my monthly goals and a to-do list.

Obviously, I had to add easy flower doodles and a ribbon bullet journal banner.

[2018] For my August monthly log, I created a simple vertical layout. Due to my business and personal life, I need only a minimal glance at the month.

As a content creator, I want to have a space for setting monthly goals and planning out the marketing strategy. I incorporated Venice Beach theme by filling block letters with “mural” patterns from cover page and drawing lifeguard tower doodle.

I get everything from my mind and transfer it onto a bullet journal page. Next, I added a task management page to organize these messy thoughts.


Weekly Planner for August

[2020] Last but not least, it’s time to show you my bujo weekly spread.

Recently I’ve been obsessed with dutch door bujo spreads.

Although my heart is bleeding every single time I have to cut out some of my precious notebook pages, I find this type of bujo weeklies functional.

Also, I leave a space for a weekly review and braindump (again). Undoubtedly, it helps me a lot stay on a track and work towards goals without being distracted.

Moreover, it’s a great opportunity to practice my lettering and doodling.
