    Hello and welcome back! If you've been following me over on @whimsical.doodles, you'll have noticed I absolutely LOVE using kraft/brown paper in my bullet journal! Being super thin, it works great to create a "collage" type spread without bulky additions to your journal. Kraft paper can be used in a variety of spreads - daily/weekly layouts, trackers, cover pages, and more!

    For my August cover page, I decided to stick to a more "simple" spread. It's been a very busy few weeks and I figured I'd do a simple and easy to follow theme. Enter kraft paper! Combine that with some quick and easy floral doodles, and we have an easy cover page!

    If you'd like to recreate this yourself, here's what I used to create this cover page -

    I used gouache to illustrate these florals. I absolutely love using paint in my journals but you could use your favorite way to add in colors! To help you draw the flowers, download my FREE practice printable over on my last blog post here! For a closer look at how I illustrate my drawings, check out this post here!

    Once I had the florals drawn in, I cut out a small piece of Kraft paper for the month title! I find that adding the Kraft paper elevates the entire theme!

    There are an endless number of ways to use kraft paper in your bullet journal and while we may not be able to cover them all let's take a look at more creative ways to use kraft paper in your journal -

    1.  A classic combination of Black, white, and brown! I absolutely love using this color palette - easy but super pretty! Here are a couple of great examples:

    2.  Using Kraft paper to create weekly spreads. This is a pretty fun and easy way to add in Kraft paper to your theme. Use a white pen to write on the Kraft paper!

    4.  Another great way to use Kraft paper is to create "hidden compartments"! How cute does this spread look! I absolutely love the idea of the mini envelope.
