Watercolor May Bullet Journal

Bullet Journaling is a relaxing and fun way to keep all your thoughts in one place and make sure you get your “to dos” done!

We have made it to May! And I think my life might be lighting on fire. But that’s a good thing. With a very busy month about to come my way, I though that a the positivity of my journal was something I really needed.

And what is more positive that a large, in your face, blotch of yellow?!? This is a bit of a shift from the mixture of Aprils orange / yellow. It feels brighter and a lot louder. Although I did multiple different shades of yellow, they all seemed to blend into one giant blob of the yellow color.

The splotch is made through the watercolor transfer technique I have been using. I painted a combination of yellow watercolor onto a plastic surface and then flipped it onto the paper. Once again, I added too much water to this transfer as I got one giant blob instead of the blotchy effect that I normally attempt for.

I wanted to go back to the henna style of drawing that I last did in March. There weren’t many holes to fill so I decided to fill in all the space that was not covered in the yellow color. This took a little longer than I anticipated but I adore how the image turned out. A lot of henna flowers to celebrate spring!

  1. I’ve never used this technique to add watercolour to my bullet journal, although I did give it a go to transfer to some watercolour paper and it’s great fun. I might give it a go next month.
