the moleskine project

4

I finished my yearly, monthly, and half of my weekly log for my new bullet journal.

Tomorrow, I need to find something to fill up the other half of my weekly log. Then, I’ll start working on my daily log.

My most clever finished project would have to be my desk, which I made myself. It is my favorite place to write, read and create. My walls are more of an ongoing project. Day 19 of the April challenge by @journaling-junkie. ( I also have some close ups of my desk here.)

Hi everyone! I started a journal again this summer, and I thought I would share some tips and recommendations that I found useful:

Basic supplies:

  • Notebook // rec: moleskine (comes in many sizes and colours, but the acid-free paper tends to be thin and is not archival)
  • Pen // rec: muji black ink pen 0.38mm, staedtler permanent lumocolor

Supplies for more fun

  • Brush + Watercolours // rec: staedtler watercolor pencils (highly portable and a variety of colours)
  • Coloured pencils // rec: staedtler triangular coloured pencils 
  • Fineliners // rec: staedtler triplus fineliner, hema fineliners/fijnschrijvers
  • Glue stick or tape for putting in photos, tickets, etc, into your journal
  • Camera // rec: fujifilm instax (the instant film makes it really convenient, but you can also use your phone and print out the photos)

Tips:

  • Have your journal with you as much as possible - you never know when you’ll want to write, draw, or put something into your journal
  • Don’t worry if the pages aren’t ‘perfect’
  • Journals are perfect for collecting and drying plants 
  • Have fun!! - by @arthausgirl

Yesterday my moleskine came in so I can start my French bullet journal! I’m gonna track my progress over the summer!

Hopefully I can get more comfortable doodling and improve my French at the same time! 🇫🇷📖✨

Legend of Zelda Daily Doodles

Hi everyone! So I’ve been doing a daily doodle project which really gives me a little daily outlet in my life because it’s so busy and hectic. These are a few of the doodles. :) I’ve been super obsessed with Legend of Zelda lately! And the games have been keeping me busy too. OTL

These were done with watercolor, micron/copic pens, and white ink. (You can see some of the materials I work with in the 3rd picture. :D )

Enjoy!

EDIT: I edited the post to just put the daily doodles not in the order I actually did them by date, but by the order that the games actually came out - Ocarina of Time, Majora’s Mask, Minish Cap, then Hyrule Warriors.
