Milk & Cookies December Cover Page

Happy December! Ah, the last month of the year is here and I just can’t even believe how fast 2021 went. Although it flew by, it was filled with lots of great memories, experiences, and creations!

This month’s cover page was inspired by my Christmas mini sessions! If you’ve been following me for a while now, you may know I run a small photography business. This year, I created Christmas morning studio sessions. My clients came dressed in their comfy matching pj’s, enjoyed milk + cookies, and shared fun family moments in a beautiful Christmas scene! Hop on over to my business insta to check out all the fun we had. Here’s a glimpse at what the setup looked like :

This entire design was completely freehanded. I used my Pentel GraphGear 500 mechanical pencil to draw out my little Christmas doodles. There was no method behind this design, I just went for it! I started filling the whole page until it exploded with milk + cookies, candy canes, snowflakes, and all the other winter doodles. When I was finished with the design, I went in with my 005-Micron pen to outline the entire design. This is a very thin and light black marker that’s perfect for outlining, especially when you have small details. When I finished with the design, I picked a light brown marker from my Crayola SuperTips set and started coloring in all of the cookies.

My original plan was to add pops of red in the candy canes, gloves, and cups of cocoa, but after I finished coloring in all the cookies, I really loved the way it came out. I filled in some white on the milk bottles and some other doodles with my white gelly roll pen to make the design really pop. After I finished drawing out my design and adding some color, I photographed it, cleaned it up in photoshop, added the text in the center, and it was finally ready to share!

Recap Tools Used:

Thanks for checking out December’s milk + cookie cover page! I hope you love this design just as much as I do. I’m looking forward to seeing the designs the bujo community is inspired by for the last month of the year! Happy Bujo-ing 🙂 Please keep tagging me in your recreated designs. I love to see them!
