Bullet Journal Themes For Summer

Posted by Hayley Remde on

Do the seasons influence your bullet journal themes? They definitely do for me! Here in the Northern Hemisphere it's starting to warm up and summer is fast approaching, so it got me searching for some inspiration for summer themes. I know people in the Southern Hemisphere are getting ready for winter, but if you want to bring some warmth into your days I say go ahead and do a summer theme anyway!! As I always struggle finding themes, I thought it would be brilliant to make a list of some and share them with you. So keep scrolling to get some inspiration!

Recommended Supplies:

  • Journal – As always, it will be no surprise to you that my pick is the Archer and Olive Journal. The lovely and thick pages have no bleeding or ghosting, so you get a clean start for every project spread! Also, it means you can decorate the spread without worrying about it.
  • Pencil – To carefully plan out your ideas so you can make sure your spread has everything you need.
  • Fineliners –My favourites are the Unipin fineliners as they’re waterproof, affordable and have a strong nib.
  • Decorative Touch (optional) – This could be anything from washi to watercolour, or of course, nothing! I usually like to add a personal touch to my spreads so they’re more fun to use and look at.

Using Inspiration

Just before we begin, if you are inspired by any of these artists to make your own spreads and you wish to share it online, always make sure to credit the original artist. Also, make sure to check them out and give them a follow!

Florals

I always associate both spring and summer with flowers! I feel like it's one of the best themes because you can really adapt the design to whatever medium you want to use and to your artistic ability. Here are some lovely summery floral spreads for inspiration:

Beach

What do most people want to do in the summer? Go to the beach of course. Here are some spreads to take you to the beach even if you're not there just now:

 

First of all, here is this stunning beach painting by Elizabeth. It would be the perfect cover page:

The best part of the beach for me is definitely the sea! Hannah captured that in her journal this month:

Sunsets

Maybe it's just me, but I always associate sunsets with summer. I know they happen all year round, but I feel like you appreciate them more on a warm evening. Here's some inspiration to start you off:

 

The colours in this spread I created really makes me think of a summer sunset:

Here's another! I find sunsets really fun and easy to do. Just get a couple or paints that blend well and go for it!

Wheat Fields

End of spring, early summer is when wheat fields are fully grown. I always find them really beautiful, and so easy to draw paint! Here's some inspiration:

 

Hannah created this stunning wheat field in her weekly spread.

Camping

I couldn't find many spreads that fit in this theme, but I had to include it because camping really reminds my of summer! So here's a brilliant spread by Shanise:
