Hello friends, it’s Smitha here with my journal. One of my favorite things to do is to sit down and empty all my thoughts onto a page. So today, I’ll show you how to create a notes page that is pretty and has an area for all of your journaling!
- MONO Drawing Pen
- Tombow Dual Brush Pens (choose a few colors of your choice)
- Dot grid journal or sketchbook
I start by creating a big focal point. For me, I like to draw a large flower using a few Dual Brush Pens. You can draw anything of your choice. Just make sure to make it bold.
To give this a sketchy feel, I added tones of grey to the leaves and purposely left the petal strokes unblended.
While the flower itself looks pretty, I love how it looks with a nice chunky outline! For thicker outlines, nothing beats MONO Drawing Pen 08.
Using the dot grids, space out even buckets of spaces. Create different shapes if you want or keep them all rectangle. It’s your choice!
The final step is to color in small areas to add pops of color. I love how the reds and pink on the page draw the eye here!
This notes page is now ready to be filled in! Do you dot journal? I love writing and decorating my dot journal because it brings me calmness and a space to relax and recharge.
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Happy crafting!
