Hello friends, Adrienne from @studio80design here to show you my Moon Phases Monthly Layout for July! My bullet journal has been keeping my mind organized these past few months and I love creating my own layouts that are customized to my planning needs! Let's get started!
Materials I used:
- Archer and Olive A5 Signature Dot Grid Notebook
- Tombow Dual Brush Pen in N15 Black
- Tombow MONO Drawing Pen in 01
- Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen, Black
I used the bullet tip of a black Tombow Dual Brush Pen to draw squares for the days of the month as well as a notes section. In this notebook, each square is 5x5 with a one square border. It fits just right and leaves a small space for notes at the far right. I drew these boxes freehand since the dots act as guides for the lines, and I really like the look of the imperfect lines!
In the empty space in the top left I outlined July with the bullet tip of the Dual Brush Pen. Then I used the MONO Drawing Pen 01 to add a monoline inside the letters.
Next, I used my scissors to cut the edge of the page into a tab! Because this notebook is wider, you have more room to cut tabs into the pages without losing valuable real estate. Each month gets it own tab and I use the Tombow Fudenosuke Hard Tip Brush Pen to write in the tab names. This is so helpful and keeps my months and pages organized!
This is a 'moon phases' layout, so I had to add the month's moon phases to their dates. Rather than include every night's moon, I chose to keep it simple by only adding in no moons, half moons, and full moons throughout the month! I used the Tombow MONO Drawing Pen 01 to draw these into their corresponding dates.
The last step to this moon phases monthly layout is to add a stippled moon design to the top of my pages, with the full moon in the middle and waxing and waning moons going out to the sides. I kept the moons white and used the bullet tip of the black Dual Brush Pen to stipple around each moon.
And that's it for this moon phase monthly layout! I love the black and white layout because I like to color code in my planning. The black and white background helps the planning colors pop more on the page so everything at a glance!
