Guess who’s getting back to bullet journaling this summer? Me! I was using a bullet journal to plan my entire life last summer and once the semester started that August, I switched to Happy Planner. All of the assignments and projects built up so quickly and I didn’t have time to create spreads every month!! I love my Happy Planner dearly for its functionality and the stickers of course but since I have more time, I decided to switch to bullet journal for the summer again.
For a few weeks, I have been stalking Facebook and Instagram to find spreads that would work for me. I’ve come across so many great artists and bullet journalists that it would be a crime not to share them with you all! Here are my favorites:
Liz from @bonjournal_
Liz is a mastermind with flower doodles and black-ink only spreads! I like her Instagram account in particular because she posts tutorial pictures that are super easy to follow! Most of Liz’s spreads only require a fine-tip pen, too, so it won’t break your budget.
Marie from @journalspiration
What’s cool about Marie is that she uses a book that is smaller than the popular Leuchtturm 1917 for her bullet journal. Even with a small journal, she is able to create beautiful spreads! Her spreads not only look minimal but require minimal effort on my part when I recreate her spreads (which is not a bad thing at all)! I appreciate how clean Marie’s spreads are. They make me feel calm by just looking at them!
Justina from @white.plans
I love Justina’s account for her calligraphy. In the bullet journal world, you see calligraphy everywhere but the sleekness of her designs catch my eye every time. Something about her style is unlike no other! Justina’s Instagram features pages from her personal bullet journal and graphic design posts where she overlays her designs over pictures. If I could only be as artistic as her.
Piper from @portlandjournals
Another calligraphy genius! Piper works with watercolors a lot in her spreads, which I think is becoming a big trend in the bullet journal community. I personally love bullet journal pages that have tons of text. Maybe that’s why I journal so much? Piper features a lot of full-text pages on her Instagram. Also, I adore the pastel color palette she uses in her spreads. A must follow!
M from @badacademics
I have no idea why @badacademics has only 489 followers. This account posts bullet journal spreads and studyblr posts. You can see the in-depth notes M takes with my two favorite tools – Zebra Mildliners and Crayola Supertips! I am also pretty sure all of the spreads are created with the 0.38 Muji pens, which is an AMAZING pen for beginners.
