Plan with Me APRIL 2018 // My Monthly Bullet Journal Setup // Veronica Marie


Hey everyone welcome back to my channel it’s Veronica in today’s video I’m gonna be planning out my bullet journal for the month of April, so I’m gonna start out with my cover page And I really wanted this whole thing to be kind of spring themed a lot with the greens and pinks and blues So I’m gonna be painting some tulips in a mason jar So I started out by sketching this with a pencil just so that I kind of laid everything out to how I wanted it to look and then I Usually will take an eraser and kind of erase most of it just to the point where I can still see it a little bit, and then I will paint over it I Do really like planning everything out with pencil ahead of time because then you know exactly how it’s gonna look Some of you guys have been deeming me some of your pictures From the Bullitt journals that you’ve recreated of mine, which is really awesome so I’m excited to see what you guys are going to do with this one if you guys do recreate this make sure to Tag me in it either on Instagram or Twitter or whatever because I absolutely love seeing what you guys come up with So now like I said I’m just going to be filling this in I’m going to be taking my watercolor pen with some light colors And I’m just gonna start filling in the greens And then the pinks I always like to start off with a light shade of whatever color I’m using and then I’ll go in with a little bit of a darker shade of let’s say green and filling in some of the shadows of the Leafs or the petals of the flowers with like a darker pink the way This is lit. It’s kind of hard to see how much color I actually put into this It is a little washed out in the video, but it’s a lot more colorful in Reality, so as I finished painting. I then took my gel pen and I Colored in happy April that I had traced out already, and then I also went over the whole painting once It was dry of course this just helps it to pop out a little bit Sometimes watercolor is faded a little bit And this makes it seem a lot more bright and colorful So then that’s it for my cover page, I really really love how this turned out normally my paintings don’t turn out exactly how I envisioned them But this did this is exactly how I wanted it to look so I was really happy about that so Then moving on to my next page. This is where I’m going to have my monthly habit tracker I Didn’t end up doing a full calendar for the month of April just because I didn’t think I was going to use it Will see if I miss it then I’ll add it in in the next month’s video, so just to keep it simple though I just did a habit tracker so starting out. I just traced again with my pencil I traced out habit tracker, and then I’m also going to add some little leaf accents on the side I was really excited when I did this whole setup because it was a lot easier To plan since it is a dotted page you guys know with my old journals. I used to have to make all the little checkbox squares for each day of the month for each task So since the boxes are all made up in this journal I didn’t have to do any of that all I really had to do was write numbers at the top of each little column of boxes a number for each day of the month and Then I pretty much just had to write each habit by the other column You’ll see what I mean And then I took a ruler and I actually sectioned off the box between the numbers and where I was going to fill everything in then besides each row of Squares I just wrote the habits. I want to try and start doing more of this month I Really have missed the habit tracker part of bullet journaling I think I used this the most when I used to do this it really keeps you Focused and it’s really nice to see your progress after doing something for so long so Then once I finished with the large portion of the habit tracker I actually made the whole bottom of this page just for working out So sometimes I’ll go for runs sometimes They’ll do more of like a cardio or dance workout and then sometimes also lift weights, so I usually only have one spot for workout, but it doesn’t actually keep track of all the individual things I’ll do So I wanted to get a little bit more in depth with this and so that’s why I added a spot for running a spot for Yoga dance like I said And then also if I lifted weights at all and then that wraps up my habit tracker for the month I do have that extra page on the other side of the habit tracker, and I honestly think I’m just going to fill that with Pictures that I take during the month of April and then moving on to the next page I’m going to be planning out the first week in April. I know that’s probably already past by the time I’ve gotten this video up But you guys can get the general idea for a weekly set up so for the weekly setup I started out by making five boxes across the whole page And they’re probably going to be the biggest parts of the weekly planning I used to have a lot of other sections But now I’ve really just narrowed it down to having a spot for each day and what I want to do throughout the whole week so After I made the five squares, I then made two smaller squares down on the bottom And those are going to be first Sunday and Saturday. I don’t usually try and accomplish as much on the weekends I’m usually just kind of finishing up my stuff from the week on the weekends things that I don’t get done So those don’t need to be as big then on the opposite side in the other corner I sectioned off a little square where I put a Small little calendar of the entire month of April so I can kind of see where I am at in the month Then the whole rest of the bottom is just going to be for weekly goals So now keeping with that a leafy almost floral sort of theme I’m going to be doing a ton of leaves up on the top and Really, just throughout the whole page as well, then bringing in that blue. I’m actually going to be drawing out my numbers for the day of the week in a blue watercolor paint and Then I’m just going to fill in some more leaves with my pen and then once I’m finished with that I’m going to go over the numbers With the day of the week Then I’ll add some last-minute touches And then this is really finished. I didn’t do too much with it This time kept it simple And I will fill it out as the week goes on Honestly even though this whole set up is probably the simplest one. I’ve ever done. I do like it the best I like keeping things simple sometimes and even though there’s not as much included as with my old setup I feel like this is going to be more functional for me So that is it for my weekly setup and my habit tracker And then my page for the month of April so that is it for this video I hope you guys liked it like I said if you guys recreate any of this I’d love to see pictures so you can tag me and um send them to me whatever I Would love to see what you guys come up with I hope you guys have a wonderful day And I will see you guys in my next video. Bye 🙂
