Greetings from my side.Hope you are having a brilliant day. Thanks for hearting previous article and reading this one. You guys know how to cheer me up. Now it's my turn to do the same. Well my 'Art journal collection' is the one responsible for most notifications up here, therefore I have decided to do this article which I know you will like a lot. Without any further ado, lets get started.

I'm dividing this article into two parts for your convenience -

Just an idea for your cover page.


Have one color theme for particular month, if you wish you can make it really artistic or just simple aesthetic page after all it has to show dates and days only. You can add important events which are you going to attend in the respective month.

TIP :- Make sure to enter a beautiful quote that will set your vibe for the whole month.


This one is really upto you if you need more organisation in your life I would suggest a daily planner or in my case weekly planner does a good job too. As I save the space to write my experiences or learning for the day because more than schedule I need motivation and good thoughts on a daily basis but if this is your journal cum planner please add a daily planner.
