Festive Journaling Time


Festive Journal Pages
Festive Journal Pages

It's that time of year where I love to make my journal pages look bright, cheerful and full of festive excitement. In this blog post, I am sharing how I created these journal pages, in the hope that it gives you some ideas for your own.


Step 1: I tore a piece of festive printed paper and glued it to the bottom of my left-hand journal page. This printed paper is available either as part of the printables bundle on my Patreon page or in my shop.

Step 2: Next, I used my book as a reference, to decide what decorations I wanted to add to my page.

Step 3: I used watercolour paint to create the outlines for my festive decorations.


Step 4: I used a Sakura Pigma Micron pen to add black details to my watercolour painting.

Step 5: Next, I used an Edding 2185 pen in silver to add some highlights and extra details.

Step 6: I used a sticker from my printables bundle and added it to the top left-hand corner.


Step 7: I used a glass dip pen with green TWSBI ink to add a quote.

Step 8: Next I used a stamp from London Gifties with a red ink pad, to add some extra festive coloured decoration.

Step 9: I then added some washi tape from London Gifties along the bottom of my page.


Step 10: I finished off the decoration by adding some splashes of Ranger Distress Spray in Tarnished Brass.

Step 10: I then added my journal writing, using a black Muji Gel Pen.
