[Guide] How to Make a Bujo Spread

Hi guys! I know I went over how to make a bujo (bullet journal) spread, but I have never really delved into how I make my spreads. As I have adopted a new way of making my bujo layouts, I think I should share it!!

Supplies Needed:

    Pencil / Good Eraser
    Black Pen
    Color of your choice in at least 2 different shades (preferably marker)
    Your Bullet Journal (preferably dotted)

Guide!:

  1. Because I used a dotted journal, I determined my sketching by the squares that could be formed by the dots. Now, I avoid gridded journals because they don’t allow as much freedom as the dotted journals do! So, lightly doodle boxes with the pencil as a rough sketch: indicate for sure where the corners are!
  2. Assuming you will be coloring your headers, outline and fill the box with the lightest shade of your chosen color.
  3. For additional effects, use the next darkest tint and outline only the box and where the text might be.
  4. Go ahead and erase the pencil indicators on the top.
  5. With your black pen- preferably a fineliner- outline the box all around. Erase as you go, but make sure that the eraser shavings are gone before continuing to outline!
  6. Add a couple doodles here and there, but again, go from a lighter scheme to dark!! šŸ™‚

Below is my result of this process!!
