Hola bullet journalers & subscribers! March’s cover page is playful and fun with these cute little panda faces! Pandas are one of my favorite animals so this design was a joy to create. March is also my birthday month! I’m super excited to celebrate another year of life doing all the creative things I love, cheers to 31!
I went back to my dotted fabriano journal for this cover page. I needed some guides to plan out where the pandas were going to be placed. I included the bamboo leaves for a pop of green to celebrate the arrival of Spring & St. Patty’s day. I am from the midwest & we love to celebrate this jolly green holiday! I have received a lot of requests on my instagram page to start a YouTube channel or make tutorials on how I create my designs. This month I tried recording as I created this cover page. Check out the process in the short video clip below. I promise to work on my video editing skills!
I started this cover by using a mechanical pencil to outline my pandas and leaves. I used stencils to help me create perfect circles and and a consistent leaf pattern. For the outlining of the pandas and the leaves I used my 005 micron pen, I used the 01 micron to color in the pandas faces and ears. The green hue is from my crayola supertip 100 pack.
