Flower Bouquet Mood Tracker 1

Hi, friends, I’m Amy from Amy Latta Creations, and one of my favorite types of journal pages to create is a monthly mood tracker. I love to doodle, and mood trackers let me combine my drawings with a way to reflect on how I’m feeling each day.

What is a Mood Tracker Journaling Page?

The basic idea of a mood tracker is that you create any drawing you like, then number the parts in a way that corresponds with the number of days in the month. Each day, you color in part of the picture using the color in the key that matches your mood. Today, we’re going to create a Flower Bouquet Mood Tracker that you can use in your own journal. Just grab the supplies listed below, and let’s get started!

Before we draw a flower bouquet, we need to take a quick look at how to draw the flowers themselves. Here are two simple flower doodles that anyone can create; all you have to do is follow the three steps. Don’t worry about perfection or comparing your flowers with mine. Practice makes progress, and every flower you draw will be unique, just like every real flower in nature!

Drawing a Daisy

Start by sketching an upside-down “u” shape, and close it off at the bottom with a slightly curved line. This will be the center of the flower. Next, add five or six petals. I use teardrop shapes for the petals on the ends, and long, thin “u” shapes for the ones in the middle. Finally, add a wavy line for the stem and fill in part of the center shape with dots.

Drawing a Poppy

Start with a “u” shape that’s connected at the top with a wavy line. This will be the center petal. Draw two more petals, one on each side, by making a curving line that connects back to the center petal. Finally, add a long line for the stem, as well as short detail lines inside the petals. Each petal and flower will look unique.

Now that you can draw these two types of flowers, let’s combine them to create our bouquet.

Creating a Flower Bouquet Mood Tracker

Sketch an assortment of daisies and poppies inside a mason jar using your drawing pencil.

To draw the jar, sketch an oval where you want the mouth to be, then extend a short vertical line down from each side to form the neck. Then, sketch the sides and bottom of the jar, all of which are slightly curving lines. Add a few detail lines around the neck, and your jar is complete!

Trace your sketch with a MONO Drawing Pen.

I used a 05, but you can use whatever thickness you prefer. Then, once the ink is dry, use the MONO Sand Eraser that came in your colored pencil set to erase any visible pencil lines.

Use your MONO Drawing Pen to add detail.

Add the dots to the centers of the daisies, as well as detail lines on the flower petals. (Make sure to leave enough room to label each petal with a number in the next step.) Draw a flattened oval inside the jar to fill it with water.

Label your flower petals with numbers that correspond to the days of the month.

Since my tracker is for March, I needed 31 spaces to color. My original sketch only had 27 petals (oops!), so I added an extra poppy to the bouquet. A smart idea would be to plan out the petal count in your original sketch so you know you’ll have enough.

Create a heading for your page.

I labeled my page “March Mood Tracker,” but you can customize yours for any month or choose a different title. First, I used a Dual Brush Pen to write the word “March” in brush script. Then, I outlined it with the MONO Drawing Pen 005. To make the letters look even more interesting, I used a light blue Irotijen colored pencil to shade the lower half of each letter slightly darker than the original brush pen. Finally, I added shadows with a dark blue Irotijen colored pencil. I sketched a simple banner below the word and wrote “mood tracker” inside, then colored it yellow.

Add a mood key.

For the mood tracker to work, each mood has to have an assigned color. Draw a series of boxes along the side of the page and label them with various emotions you might feel. Then, color each box with one of the Irojiten Vivid colors.

Color in any areas of the picture that aren’t numbered.

For this drawing, that includes the centers of the daisies and the water in the jar.

Now your flower bouquet mood tracker page is ready to use throughout the month! I love using Irojiten Colored Pencils for this kind of project because they give such pigmented, vibrant color. They’re great for layering and blending, and they won’t bleed through the paper, so I can use both sides of every page in my journal.
