I have been busy setting up the new March pages for my bullet journal.
|March cover and gratitude page|
Setting up a new month always takes quite a bit of time, and this month I decided to take a few shortcuts: I spent a happy afternoon painting a leaf wreath with watercolous only. I then scanned that page and use it to decorate all of my March pages. I did it for two reasons, - to save time, but also because I have found it more and more frustrationg that any watercolour or pen work directly in the journal, bleeds through the thin pages of my Leuchtturm journal. This is a well know phenomenon and the bulletjournal communty calls it ghosting.
I did a few original drawings still, but mostly just used my scans.
Here you can see the original scanned painting, which I resized and used on the various following pages.
My weekly spread for the for this week, transitioning from February into March.
My monthly spread. The top here is the only other original drawing I did, I tried to match the clours but used pencils rather than watercolours. (They still ghosted through somewhat).
Monthly habit tracker with a bit of doodling to the side of the wreath.

|And finally keeping track of my house hold spending and tasks.|
If any of you are into planners or journals like these, you are welcome to download this little wreath as a freebie. I'll add it in three different versions below.
Just print it on your printer's best setting (I used glossy paper)
You can resize them to your own needs of course in any photediting programme.
Well, that's it for now and like always thank you so much for taking the time to visit, I really appreciate it.
