August Weekly Spreads in My Bullet Journal

So I’m doing something a little different for today’s installment of (what I guess you could call) my bullet journal series. Normally, when showing photos of my bullet journal and explaining how I use it, I only post my monthly spreads – like this one for August. These posts include all the trackers and other pages I use throughout the month. However, a lot of people seem to like these posts and want more, so strap yourselves in kids, today you’re getting what you wished for – more journal photos! (Probably not you in particular, but some other strange internet-dweller like me who gets their thrills through arty organisation).

August has been the first month in which I’ve really stepped up my weekly spreads – previous months have had the same design for every single day, whereas this month is different each and every week! That’s why I thought it would be nice for this to be the first set of weekly spreads that I share with you all…

Week One

The first five days of August didn’t really get their own spread, and they featured in my August setup post anyway. I thought I’d include that page in here to show just how simple a weekly spread can be.

Week Two

This week of August still felt summery – it was hot and sunny and I’m already starting to forget how that feels! Since then, we haven’t had much blisteringly hot weather, which is a relief for the grass (it was all yellow where I live and has now gone back to green) but I’m hoping there’s still another beach trip or two to be squeezed out of this British summer.

Week Three

I think my mind and body were ready to jump into more autumnal/wintery themes this week; as soon as the rain came my bullet journal lost the yellow colours and a minimal black and blue mountain theme popped up. I like the simplicity of this spread, although my wrist started cramping up drawing in all the little dots.

Week Four

For the next week, I felt the need to inject a little bit more colour into my pages (blue was still very much an underlying theme though…) I really love watercolour paints at the moment, and feel like I’m really learning how to control the colours and blending a bit more. I no longer feel like the watercolours are controlling me! That’s why I went for a planet theme, using different colour combinations to create several celestial objects across the top of the page.

Week Five

And finally, we get to the spread that I think is kind of a combination of week three and week four – a minimal line drawing page with a planet/mountain theme. I couldn’t help myself continuing the blue theme, even if that was only with the presence of washi tape at the top and bottom of the pages.

And that’s it – roll on September (and the start of a completely new bullet journal)!

    oh my goodness I’m in love with your weekly spreads!! I wish I had the motivation to put even half that effort into my own weekly spreads and overall bullet journal but mine never ends up looking that beautiful! x

    You really make me want to try harder with my bullet journal, rather than just scribbling 😂 Although, I know I couldn’t do as good a job as you (my drawing skills are… limited.) I love the mountain layout and the planets are gorgeous! Can’t wait to see more. 😊

    These are such gorgeous & creative spreads Alys! I love your intricate and detailed drawings, they look brilliant! Every time I scrolled down to see a new week, I thought ooh that’s my favourite, then the next one became my favourite. I couldn’t make up my mind which one I liked best, I love them all! I like how each week reflects how you are feeling. Thank you for sharing, your designs make me want to take up bullet journalling again! 💖 xx

    I love your themes! Your little drawings are so wonderfully detailed and almost iconic looking? I’am not sure that’s the right word but I would totally buy stickers with those designs 🤗
