How to Create a Notes Page in Your Journal 1


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!

Material list:

Step 1:

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.

Step 2:

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.

Step 3:

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!

Step 4:

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.

    Notes pages are critical when it comes to the literature classes. I am a student, and my life consists of endless notes. For example, recently I got the task to describe the characters of Great Gatsby and I didn’t have time to read it. Thanks to https://edubirdie.com/examples/the-great-gatsby/ I was able to check the examples of writing pieces on this subject and made some notes which required proper organization. Thanks to this article, I can make a better presentation for my task 🙂
