Hello friends, it’s Smitha from the Smiling Colors Blog with a journaling tutorial! I’ll walk you through a weekly journaling spread and how to make it colorful

Weekly Journaling Page Tutorial:

Step 1:

With the MONO Graph Mechanical Pencil, lightly sketch out the blocks for your weekly journaling page. I am making a two-week spread here. I’ve also doodled in some leaves

I like starting with a pencil sketch. This gives me an idea of how much space I need for everything and it’s easily erasable.

Step 2:

Next, trace the block outlines with the MONO Drawing Pen of your choice. I like to use the 01 or 02 tip size for my lines!

If you make a mistake, no worries. Simply cover it up with the MONO Air Correction Tape and continue!




Step 3:

Now, start to add color. I’m loving the 6-pack of Dual Brush Pens for my weekly spreads! All the colors coordinate so beautifully!


Step 4:

Once you have colored in all of your doodles, gently erase the pencil guidelines and we’re done!

    I liked reading your article on weekly journaling. As a student, I know how important is to track the progress of the tasks and organize the task effectively especiall if you are a women. The idea of incorporating this practice into my routine seems like a helpful tool for managing my life. After reading article at https://www.historycentral.com/Women/Womentime.html I understand how powerful women are. I think we need to use all possible resources that makes it easier to manage stress, hard situations etc. We all need to move the emphasis on reflection and goal-setting and ability to stay organized and focused. I’m happy with the ideas and creative aspects of the journaling.
