August 2019 Bullet Journal Setup

August Bullet Journal cloud hot air balloon theme

At the end of every month, my favorite ritual is sitting down in front of my bullet journal with all my art supplies and creating a new spreads for the next month. I played around with all kinds of theme ideas in my head but I ultimately landed on what turned out to be my all-time favorite this year: clouds and hot air balloons! I hope you enjoy the spreads I came up with!



Cover page

As I mentioned earlier, I chose a cloud and hot air balloon theme! It was a combination inspired by two of Amanda Rach Lee’s bullet journal themes that I just fused together. I really love the way the cover page turned out and this theme lends to a lot of different things I can do for spreads through out the month! It’s cute, it’s easy to draw and it’s fun!

I did individual boxes for my calendar this month and I liked how they looked like they were floating with the clouds and the hot air balloons! I think it added a whimsical touch to this spread!



Habit Tracker and Expense Tracker

I went back to doing individual trackers for this month. I kept getting confused with my old way of tracking. It takes longer to draw and and is tedious but I just like seeing my habits tracked this way. The expense tracker stayed the same. I’ve explored a different way to track expenses earlier in the year but it wasn’t helpful to me. I’m going to stick with what works.

Weekly Spread

For my first weekly spread, I drew hot air balloons in black and filled in numbers of the day with a white gel pen. I handlettered the day next to it after I drew a blue line using my Zebra mildliner. I am pretty proud of this layout and I think it looks cute!I can’t wait to create more interesting spreads this month!
