Life was so busy and chotic the beginning of this year that I just didn’t have time, between travelling and work, to plan out my journal. I missed it far too much! So it was a relief to get back into illustrating and organising once again in July … I was determined to fit time into getting the monthly spreads done so I opted for simple watercolour splashes in just two colours, pink and black.

Flowers? Sort of! I’m calling them odd botanicals … they were pulled out from the depths of my imagination and splashed onto the page! I’m not sure why I chose pink as it’s never been a fave colour of mine but am always willing to try new things … and I quite like the way it ended up looking for the whole month. Here are the To-Do and weekly spreads:

I’m so glad to be back and working on the journal! There’s something so wonderfully satisfying about it and it gives me such pleasure to sit at my desk in the morning filling it in and thinking up ideas for the next month’s colours and themes. I’m thinking of making and offering printables, and of working on an illustrated planner to publish and sell as well … it’s a huge project but just the idea of getting one done is wonderfully exciting and that’s a good sign, isn’t it? Hope you’ve had a magical July wherever you are.
