Hello beautiful people!
People … I, Jenna the Book Blogger, have ACTUALLY posted my monthly spread BEFORE the next month! Yes … I’m proud of myself.
Also … I’m still really new to photography and photo editing — so if ANYONE has suggestions for me to basically make the image more “natural” and show the colours more, PLEASE let me know!
- Limited Edition Dual Brush Pen Sets, Desert Flora
- Tombow Dual Brush Pen Set, 10-Pack, Portrait Colors
- Tombow 66403 Mono Drawing Pen (3), 3-Pack, 3 Piece
- yaonow Washi Tape Pink Foil Rolls (set B)
- 4 Roll Black Masking Tape (Bronzing) (the white background one)
- Tombow 62106 Adhesives Mono Permanent Adhesive Applicator
- Helix Angle and Circle Maker (36002)
The colours I used specifically for this set up are 158, 772, 800, and 942. For the Tombow Mono Drawing Pens, I used all of them; for the little small details such as the flowers, I found 01 the best. Side Note: The “w” on the weekly spreads are to track my water intake. One dot equals 1 cup of water.
Warning: This washi tape says it’s sticky — it’s not. It’s still very pretty but the point of tape is that it sticks and I don’t have to use adhesive to use it.
Changes & additional notes
After seeing the layouts on journal.it, I wanted to give habit trackers on the weekly spreads a try; I’m hoping this will help me to not forget to fill them out as much ha-ha!
The weekly spreads also have a sleep log tracker, a focus section, and a next week box. I’m a borderline insomniac, so I really want to keep track of my sleeping patterns. In addition, I thought that any BIG items that need to be done throughout the week could go in the focus section. The “next week” boxes are what I’m REALLY excited for — they’re like mini “future logs”!
The blog tracker page has a few changes. Basically, I added a post calendar tracker instead of listing all the random ideas. I forgot that I had an ideas place at the beginning of my journal, and I want to have a way to organize all the posts I have for the month.
On the second page where my habit tracker used to be, I added a new monthly fitness challenge — I used to do them all the time. This month is a love handles one!
Unfortunately, it’s hard to see the ABT 800 and 942 because the colours are SO light. On the weekly spreads, I used ABT 800 to highlight the day of the week and number in each box.

I always leave one blank page, just in case I end up needing it for expenses. If not, it’s a fun doodle page!
