April Wildflowers Cover Page

Bullet Journal |

I’m all about the wildflowers this spring! My April cover page is inspired by my photography business and the wildflower spring mini’s I will be hosting this year. Spring has not sprung where I’m from just yet, but you can tell it’s trying to peek through the end of winter’s dreary. The weather is getting warmer & pretty soon all the trees will start to bud & people will be getting their gardens ready! I just love wildflowers in the spring; fields full of purple flocks & the smell of lilacs are some of my favorite things!

I used quite a variety of tools to achieve the look of this wildflower bouquet design. I started off using my new Graphgear 500 0.3 pencil by Pentel. This mechanical pencil is heavier in weight & I enjoyed how precise I was able to draw with it. I created the larger flowers first and then built smaller flowers & greenery around them. I’m inspired by all the moody shades of blue this season so I had to incorporate them into April’s cover page. The color hues were created with Prismacolor & fine touch colored pencils.

This design was quite tedious! I did a lot of blending and building up the shades of blue. I really wanted to achieve a three dimensional look with my bouquet of wildflowers. A simple shading tool is all that you need to push color around by shading. It adds depth & dimension making your drawings really pop. As always, all of my designs are created in Fabriano journals. These journals are the perfect size & come in a variety of colors. The paper is really what makes these journals so special. It is very forgiving if you make a lot of mistakes. If you tend to erase a lot I highly recommend using a gum or soap eraser to help preserve the quality of the paper.

Thanks for checkout April’s cover page in my bullet journal. Here is a look back at previous years cover pages for April in my bullet journal! Please keep tagging me in your recreated designs, I love to see the inspiration.

  1. Crayola tips are good/ I also use the tempera paint premium. Crayola has good art supplies and it’s my childhood. The colors are beautiful. A lot of learning also happens as you observe your own work.
