How to Get the Most Out of Color in Your Notes or Bullet Journal

How can we choose a color combination for our bullet journals? Well, Stationery Pal will share some wonderful ideas to help you pick the right color palette to make your bullet journal more stylish.

Although everyone may create a bullet journal and enjoy its efficiency and creativity-boosting features, many beginners struggle with selecting a suitable color combination for the season's theme, monthly designs, and weekly planner. Even some bullet journal enthusiasts may find it hard to choose what color will suit their everyday journal.

In this blog, we will share some of the best tips we've found to help you select the best colors for your bullet journal.

Start with a single basic color

Sticking to the same color palette for your bullet journal is one of the simplest ways to turn a month into a theme and make it look uniform. Another advantage is that you don't have to take around a whole pencil box full of the stuff or look for the exact color pen to fill out a spread.

Explore different color combinations.

Understanding how different hues interact with each other is the key to good color patterns. Warm colors are connected with energy, brightness, and action, while cool colors are frequently associated with calm, peace, and serenity. When you recognize that color has a temperature, you will be able to recognize how to blend the colors for your journal. Don't be afraid to mix and match colors. It's fun to play around with it and make your own color combinations that fit your mood or feelings.

Applying the concept of a mood board

Is there a special image that you adore? like a sunset or a forest scene? You can create a mood board in your journal. Stick in the images and pick up some of the key colors in the pictures, such as a sunset image with beautiful oranges, yellows, and pinks. This will help you stick to a color palette theme and will provide you with a really nice reference to begin with.

How about the monthly bullet journal themes?

Have you tried a bullet journal monthly spread? It is a simple and beautiful way to see your entire month in one glance. A monthly spread is also a great deal of fun. Maybe you want to organize your entire month around a holiday, such as Christmas or Halloween. Another great idea is to get into the seasonal spirit with beautifully themed summer or spring spreads.

Use something you really like!

Have a cool piece of washi tape. You want to use some stickers? Something you want to write in your journal right away. So, why not pick that item, find one or two colors that go well with it, and use that as a theme for your journal. That way, you can make something special for yourself.

Don't restrict yourself.

As always, this is just a guideline for creating a very easy and simple palette, but allow yourself to experiment with colors and be creative. Nothing stops you from matching brown and purple or green and orange on a journal! Always be creative and have fun. Your planner and journal are both productivity tools, but they are also creative outlets that you should enjoy.

If you want to do that kind of journaling, you can find everything you need right here on Stationery Pal. We always encourage everyone to be creative and artistic in order to express themselves and enjoy bullet journaling stress-free.
