August Summer Beach Hats

Bullet Journal |

This month’s bullet journal cover page is inspired by summer days at the beach. I can’t believe it is August already! Just when it’s starting to feel like summer in the midwest, it’s practically over. Much of my summer has been spent by the beach, whether I’ve been photographing, walking my dog, or just relaxing, it’s been a beach-filled summer!

I was looking in my closet one day & seeing all the summer hats I collected prompted me to use them as the theme for August’s cover page! I free handed the design using my Pentel GraphGear 500 pencil to outline the hats. The hats were very tricky! It was difficult to make them all look the same, so once I drew one that I really liked, I cut it out and used it as a stencil, making some smaller & some bigger.

I added a colorful touch my switching up the color of the bows on the hats. I used my prismacolor colored pencil set for the color hues throughout the design. They are my absolute favorite colored pencils. They are very buildable & blend very well too! After I was done creating the design, I photographed it outdoors in the early morning when the light was even. I always upload my final designs for cleaning up & refining.

Thanks so much for checking out this my August cover page in my bullet journal. I hope you are all enjoying your summer & are welcoming a new month full of excitement. Leave me a comment below to let me know what you think! Here is a look back at past August cover pages.
