How To: Autumn Bucket-List + 46 Ideas to add to it!
Hey ! I’m Aly from @bujo_aly on Instagram.
Autumn is my absolute favorite season, and I think that many of you would agree with that ! There are just endless activities and things that could only be done in this beautiful season.
For this reason, I would like to share this year’s autumn-bucket-list.
In this blog post you'll see my step-by-step tutorial how I made my autumn-bucket list that is easy to transfer in your bullet journal as a addition to your autumn-y spreads.
So, let’s start!
These are the materials that I used for this project:
- Archer and Olive Notebook https://www.archerandolive.com/products/a5-vintage-bee-dot-grid-notebook ( I used the A5 Vintage Bee Dot Grid Notebook)
- Pencil and eraser
- Fineliner ( I like to use the Sakura Pima Micron in 005 and 03)
- Acrylograph Pens https://www.archerandolive.com/collections/pens-markers/products/arcylograph-pens-jewel-selection-7mm-tip (Jewel Collection)
- Tombow ABT Dual Brushpen and Fudenosuke https://www.tomboweurope.com/produkte/produkt/ABT-N15
- White Uniball pen https://www.uni-ball.de/produkt/signo-broad-metallic-um-153/
First things first: a light sketch where you could decide how the layout will look like in the end. There are no limits to the possibilities. I also added a few doodles to some of the tasks and a quote on the lower right side.
I first wrote the header with the dark blue Acrylograph in a faux calligraphy. Just take your time with designing the letters the way you like them.
Now it’s time to color in the doodles. I used different yellow, orange and red tones to stay in that autumn-y color-palette. For the details and the outline, I used the 005 fineliner from Sakura Pigma Micron. The white Uniball pen is for the reflects on the doodles.
Next: Write down the tasks of the bucket-list and the finishing touches with the 03 fineliner. (Down below, I added a list with even more tasks and ideas, what you can do in your autumn-bucket-list)
For the sentences I made first a circle that you can tick off or color in when you’ve finished the task.
I hope you enjoyed this Step-by-Step tutorial of my autumn-bucket-list! If you recreate the spread, make sure to tag me @bujo_aly on Instagram so I can check yours out!
