December is finally here! I cannot believe it is the last month of 2019! My cover page for this month was inspired by cute little candy canes. They are always the first sign of the holiday season that pop up in the grocery stores. Peppermint is the flavor of the season, I’m currently craving a peppermint mocha as I write this blog post! The red and white color theme is also giving me some serious Christmas vibes. This month is already off to a great start and I look forward to the magic of the holiday season!
I drew these cute little candy canes free hand and added some cute pops of peppermint swirls! I used a new pen my hubby bought me last Christmas for some of the lettering and for the outlining of the peppermints. This fancy little pen moves effortlessly across the page creating smooth crisp lines! The pen series is called Le Pen and I highly recommend it! For the red I used my trusty micron brush pen. I layered the red hues on some of the candy canes for some dimension! I also added some white gelly roll pen to the candy canes to make them really pop off the page!
I look forward to seeing everyone’s inspiration for December 2019! It’s the last month of this decade, wow! I hope your journaling days are abundant and I wish you a very merry holiday season!
Here is a look at last year’s December 2018 cover page!
Check out my list of bullet journaling Amazon essentials!
- Prisma colored pencils, simply the best.
- Pentel GraphGear 500 .03 mechanical pencil.
- Arteza Real Brush Pens...my new favorites! Soft tip nylon brush pens, when you add water it gives an awesome watercolor effect!

- Micron pens and brush markers are a must-have in your bujo supplies!
- I recommend the prisma hand lettering set of markers for those getting serious about lettering.
- Crayola supertips are also a must-have! I have the 100 ct box that comes with all the colors you need.
