Just Getting Started With Your Bullet journal?
If you are new to Bullet Journaling and feeling a little unsure about how to get started, it may be worth taking a look at our Complete Guide to Bullet Journaling, which will take you through everything you need to know for your first Bullet Journal setup.
What is a Bullet journal Theme?
So what are Bullet Journal Themes? A theme is a creative design element that ties your Bullet Journal spreads together. This could be a certain color scheme, emotion or topic, which then runs as a theme through your Bullet Journal pages.
Bullet Journal Themes are used to add a consistent style and design to each month and also offer a clear starting point to each month.
Once you’ve chosen your theme, you can add headers, banners, doodle, color, draw, and do as much as your creativity and time will allow!
It’s worth mentioning that the point of a Bullet Journal is that it’s personal to you. So if you want a single theme for your entire Bullet Journal or want to use different themes for each of your weekly spreads, then that’s entirely up to you.
Getting Started with Your Themes
1. Theme Cover Page
You can use a full blank age to create a Bullet Journal cover page.
Your title page for each Bullet Journal Theme, offers a clean start and ‘divider’ for each new month of your Bullet Journal, clearly defining where your new Bujo themes and monthly spreads start.
Headers are a great way to tie your page ideas together across each month, once you’ve chosen your header theme, you can repeat this throughout the month ahead.
A decent Bullet Journal notebook is essential to avoid those nasty ink-bleeds and seeing your headers coming through the back of your pages, so if you’re still on the hunt, check out our Best Bullet Journal Notebooks.
Doodling is a great idea to get your creative juices flowing and really add that little bit of personality and fun to your Bullet Journal pages.
If you’re new to doodling and what to get started, we’ve added a ‘How To’ video for you near the foot of this post.
