Haha, I hope y’all are well.
Today is very exciting because I’m posting about a bullet journal setup I am very excited about. And, can you believe there are only 2 days (?!) until February? I am at a bit of a loss for words. On month down already, whoosh! That was fast, it seems!
I have been very intrigued by the Dark and Light Academia aesthetics of late, and because I have a bullet journal, I though I’d try my hand at the aesthetic inside of it. I really enjoyed making this and laying it out, I hope you like it!
The main thing I notice about the Academia aesthetics is that they have a lot of tones of neutrals, so I went with that. For the most part, the only pens I used were the Tombow fudenosuke brush pen (hard tip) and a Pilot ink pen and a white gel pen for accents here and there.
I picked out some kraft paper for some different tones and I printed off some small photos and art to glue down (HERE is a link to my Pinterest board where you can find these additions to my bullet journal!) and to add some texture and depth and different elements to the spread. I used a very typewriter like font throughout, which is something i don’t do often, but really enjoyed.
I did a simple, two page calendar layout for this month (And I was very excited because there is a even number of days, 28, and this month starts on Monday! Eee!) and included the neutral colors and kraft paper at the bottom, as well as the same font and print outs.
On this next page I have Goals, To Do, Reminders and Ideas in one “scroll.” I love doodling things like this, so I figured I’d sling on in here somewhere. XD
On the other side I have a vertical layout (you can click here where I show you my BUJO add ons, and there I mention different layouts) for my habit trackers, featuring the same colors, fonts and prints. My habits to continue to build are daily bible reading, skin care at night, read daily, and keep a tidy room. What habits will you be building?
These two ( and a 1/2, I suppose) pages have the first two weekly logs of the month. I did a dutch door page in between where I doodled some books and letters and tea.
I think the next two pages might just be my favorite; perhaps, the dark colors, layout, I’m not sure! But, on the left we have the mail tracker (which is who I got a letter from, when, and did I reply) with various clips of photos and quotes.
On the next page I sketched a quote that says, “Those who have not more, must be satisfied with what they have.” By Jane Austen. It seemed to go with a bit of the “simple” theme. What are some of your favorite quotes?
This next page I have the money tracker for the month. It’s just the usual grid setup I do (see here for reference) with the addition of a budget space, and some beautiful pictures of libraries. ❤ Ahhh
On the right side I have a very simple weekly log. I felt like something simple might be fun beside such a busy money tracker. What do you think?
The next page is a planning page for somethings I’m hosting and teaching in February, they are just divided by a thin line.
On the right, I have another weekly log that is the same as the previous one, but with the addition of a slab of books. (:
Y’all. What is this?! Why is it touching my bullet journal?! Haha, Maisy wanted to show you her lovely hand curls.
The last page is a quote with some lovely, dreamy photos. The quote says, “Life is not a problem to be solved, but a reality to experience.” Seems like a nice one to add in the mix! (:
On the right, I have a “scroll” with a “Month Recap” inside that I will fill out at the end of the month saying a few of the things I had done in it. (:
What did y’all think? Do y’all like the academia aesthetics?
I hope you are doing well and happy February!
