Here I am using my A4 lined notebook from The Works. It’s spiral bound, so it opens flat or folds completely back on itself, and that’s a very helpful thing. It’s also easy to tear out a page if you make a terrible mistake … which is exactly what happened to my first attempt at this monthly. Happy endings though, as I like this spread more than the first one.
I have stamped the title but everything else is my own writing. I planned the spread with a pencil and ruler, then added the pen. After I had waited an extraordinary amount of time for all the ink to dry, I gently erased the pencil marks and hurrah no smudged ink.
I would always recommend a few light pencil marks to begin with as it does reduce the likelihood of making an error.
This series is specifically about journaling on a budget and simple spreads for beginners … BUT … I did get a Leuchtummmmmmm* Journal with dotted pages for Christmas – yay! If you would like to nosy at those pages then I have dedicated a whole new Instagram account to it 🙂
*It’s Leuchtturm really of course!
