Where do you find inspiration for your bujo spreads? Also, where do you find the pictures you use and what do you search to find them?
as you can notice, every month, i choose a colour for the spreads. and i just think of the thing i associate with that certain colours in general. so every picture, every quote, every single thing i’ve written down or put on the spreads are what i normally feel or think of that colour. also, i don’t really find inspirations outside things i experience in my daily life. i personally think it’s better to use things you usually see in your daily life in bujo. when you look back on these spreads, you’ll see your interests at the time and have some time to reflect upon your old/new self.
i always use google chrome. but i reckon other search engines should give similar or probably the same results?
for example, i chose grey for last november’s spreads. what i associate myself with the colour grey are wolves, winter times, cathedrals, etc. then i search for these stuff on the internet. and that’s it.
bonus: here are some tips on searching
i’m not sure if you know about this or not.
i bet you do but the keywords you use when searching are absolutely important.
try googling these three
- ocean tumblr
- ocean pinterest
(this is the reason why i don’t actually use tumblr and pinterest when searching.)
you’ll see that google gives you different types of result.
- ocean : it’ll literally give you pictures of the ocean. like, literally. ocean.
- ocean tumblr : now this will give you more aesthetic pictures that seem like they had already been edited and changed the filters to look tumblr-ish or tumblr-like. and personally, i love adding ‘tumblr’ at the end of everything before i google.
- ocean pinterest : this will give you more pastel and somewhat pink-ish pictures. although i’d say they don’t differ much from the tumblr one, you can actually see some differences between them.
or you can add some more keywords or just some words like
