Photography

Howdy thar!

Well, I believe that’s enough of my southern accent for one post. XD

Hello! I hope you’re all doing well!

Recently my camera has been in full use, almost daily. The weather has provided some lovely shots, from rain, to snow, to heat, to MORE rain, to more heat, and things finally starting to bloom, it’s been fun to experiment!

I’ve enjoyed using Canva to edit and adjust my photos, it’s such a great site!

One thing I’ve been wanting to really work on this year is nighttime photography. I understand my settings, but for some reason night photos were always reeeeaaally dark. I’ve just started to figure it out, so here are some shots from that!

You can juuuussstt make out Orion’s belt there. Don’t you love stars?

Haha, I sneezed while I was taking a picture of this star. XD

IMG_0425

With so much rain, the birds have enjoyed getting out and eating. They, for some reason, love to sit on my window.

It looks as if he’s falling! I love watching the birds outside.

IMG_0251

The animals, especially during the snow we got a week or two ago, really enjoyed being out.

This was me back in June when I still had bangs. XD I just found this.

I have been painting and drawing deer a lot lately, so I decided to put a little fawn on a letter. I really like how this one turned out. Have y’all ever seen baby deer? In the Spring/Summer they cross through the field next to us a lot. They’re so cute!

My Envelopes Have… Hearts On Them? // Valentine’s Envelope Art

The Hearts Are Everywhere!

GGRRREEEETTTIIINNGGGSSS!!

Valentine’s day is near, and while it’s not a heavily celebrated holiday here, I did want to make a few envelopes that resembled the day.

Most of them were quite simple. This one below I did little hearts all over a brown envelope, but I wanted a bit more color. I’ve been really liking the look of torn edges (well, it depends what it’s on. XD) so I tore a bit of pink scrapbook paper and used double-sided tape to apply it to the middle. I ripped a few pieces of washi tape and added it in various areas of the ripped paper, for a bit more color. I addressed it on the scrapbook paper, too.

I’ve been doing this in different colors and shapes, too, it’s really cute and fun!

IMG_0144

I did a similar thing for this envelope. I took a lot of peach/pink colors and went a teensy bit crazy with hearts (heh), and since it was a cream envelope, I tore a piece of sketchbook paper (white) and used double-sided tape to apply. I added some black washi tape for a bit of contrast and also some gold stickers.

IMG_0142

I wanted a bit more of a simple approach, so I just used big letters in silver and then used a lot of different heart stickers I had. I think this turned out cute and I like that some of them are the puffy stickers and you can feel the different shapes.

IMG_0155

This next envelope is mainly lettering, with the addition of some hanging hearts. My favorite part of this is how easy it was. I just continued some of the lines on her name into hearts. I also put the address in between her first and last name, for fun.

IMG_0269

aaaAAAhh.. I went a bit wild. XD

This one I started out with her name and did a bit of a gradient and a drop shadow. I needed to add something to the left so that it would even out everything, so that’s why there’s one massive red heart over there. (:

I thought it would be fun to do “confetti” hearts around the name. What do you think?

IMG_0147

Heh, I also used a clear glitter Gelly Roll pen to add shimemr to the big heart.. because… because…IMG_0148

This was a throwback to last year’s Valentine’s day post, (go check it out!) though, instead of a 3D paper look I used some red felt/foam paper to do the heart balloon. I also added some clouds.

I went with a more elegant lettering style; I quite like the outcome!

IMG_0153

I went very simple with this one, a heart shaped balloon and brush lettering. I like how simple and cute it became.

IMG_0159

I made another “hanging heart” illustration. I made a wreath shape and just went around and around with a black pen and then threw in some hearts. This turned out one of my favorites. (:

IMG_0267

On the back of one of the envelopes I did some more hanging hearts from the seal of the letter down. Simple, but fun!

IMG_0270

I thought crystals might be fun, not necessarily Valentine’s themed, but pink and purple(:

IMG_0271

ALAS! HURRAH! The snow came to GA for a day and a half, so here are a few pictures from that. It snowed four days ago and was gone the next day. Guess what? it’s 64º right now. *flabbergasted*

February? Already? // Bullet Journal Setup

February

Greetings and Salutations!

Let’s just slow down a minute… Where did January go?!

It feels like this month flew past, does it to you?

Anyway, February is right around the corner (currently 11 hours and 40 minutes away), so I got my bullet journal ready for the new month. I hope you enjoy!

This month’s theme is Eucalyptus. I wanted to go for a simpler theme this month using only a few colors, so I used a blue/green and light pink and gold.

My eucalyptus is very simple, just round leafy shapes.

I used my Tombow dual brush pens for all of this. (Heh, y’all probably here me talk about them all the time. They are just the best for bullet journaling! <3)

IMG_0043

My next page includes the rest of the calendar and my goals for the month, also including the eucalyptus.

the other page has the monthly habit trackers in light pink (♥️), 5+ cups water, bible reading, skin care, and music practice.

IMG_0047

My next pages are pretty simple, just to do’s and reminders. I included a few colorful stickers from my beloved Hob Lob (as my Mother and I call it. XD) because I needed some more color.

IMG_0048

This next page I meant  to do in January, but I had already started February when I remembered. It’s the birthdays page. This is really helpful to me throughout the year to reference. I just wrote the month name over a highlighter and then wrote the birthdays underneath with their date.

The other page is my monthly letter tracker. I used the light pink and did eucalyptus in the background.

IMG_0049IMG_0050

This page is my monthly money tracker: Earned, expenses, balance of the two. It’s really  helpful and keeps me organized.

I had to do some kind of valentine’s day related theme, so I wrote proverbs 3:5 among some hearts. ♥️

IMG_0052IMG_0053

The next page is my blog post ideas for the month.

The next is from my last post where I did a banner tutorial. I ended up coloring them in for fun.

IMG_0054

This is my washi tape collection spread. I like to include this in my bullet journals so I can look at the one I want to use before I tear it off the roll.

IMG_0057

This next page is a packing list for when we go to my Aunt’s house later this month. I doodled some suitcases/train cases for fun. (:

The next page is my daily routine. I made this last year and I enjoyed looking at it to motivate me. I did light pink bullet dots and the eucalyptus.

IMG_0059

And that’s it! I hope you all enjoyed! Stay posted near the end of this month for March, I’m really excited for that one.

New posts coming soon!

HOW TO: 6 Simple Banners // The Happy BUJO

6 Simple

Hi! *waves*

Happy Monday to ya!

I love adding little elements to my bullet journal, whether it be stickers, washi tape, designs, I love it to be colorful and fun.

IMG_9626
Banner used as heading.

One of my favorite things to add is banners. I use them a lot as headers, and titles, and there are so many different ways, lengths and styles.

 

I wanted to share some of my favorite ways with you today!

I always start out sketching my banners, so this will be in pencil(:

#1 A Simple Banner

Start out with a simple rectangle, any size.

IMG_9954

Then add two lines on the bottom third of your rectangle.

IMG_9955

Create from those lines two more rectangles.

IMG_9958

From the bottom corners of the main rectangle, draw a diagonal line to the corners of the two rectangles below. This creates the 3d “folded” effect.

IMG_9959

Line it, then add shading to the “folded” part, if you choose. I always just hatch it, giving it a simpler feel, but you can color it or even use black!

IMG_9962

#2 A Bit More Intricate 

This banner is mostly the same, with one small modification that makes it look a bit fancier.

Start with the same as the first, one rectangle, then draw two underneath, add the diagonal lines to create the “fold”, BUT, before you line it…

Start from the top outward corners of the two bottom rectangles, and draw a diagonal line to the middle (below).

IMG_9970

Draw the other one to match, creating a flag look. Erase any unneeded lines.

IMG_9972

It looks a bit more intricate, but is still really simple.

IMG_9973

#3 The Inverted 

(augh!!! The blur! Please excuse(: )

This rectangle you start out with is a bit different, more like a oval rectangle together.

IMG_9975

(Sadly I realized I didn’t get pictures of the process, but I shall explain)

This one is very much the same as the last two, but swapped. Instead of drawing the flags under, they will be on top.

Hint: a simple way to do this is to turn your paper upside down! XD

IMG_9977

IMG_9978

#4 Up And Down

I like doing my banners this way. This is one of my favorite ones, too, I just love how flowey this (and the next one) one is.

It starts out with oval/rectangle, and where you would draw two lines (for the two rectangles) on the bottom third, draw one at the top third and one at the bottom third. (shown below)

IMG_9980

From there draw two rectangles. One will be up and one will be down.

IMG_9982

Now you can add the diagonal “folds.” Only, these will be different. For bottom rectangle to the middle rectangle you will draw a diagonal line from the inside (for my case, bottom left) corner to the bottom (bottom right, for me) of the middle rectangle.

For the top, you will draw a line from the top inside corner (top right, for me) to the top of the middle rectangle (mine’s top left)

That way it’s “folding” correctly. (I’ve done it before where you have the two folds on the bottom. Heh, doesn’t quite work! XD)

IMG_9984IMG_9985

#5 My favorite(:

I make this one all the time, I love it!

The rectangle for this one is a bit different, one corner curves up and one down. The top and bottom lines are parallel, they mirror each other.

IMG_9987

You add just normal rectangles, one from the top third up and one from the bottom third down. Drawing the diagonal line as before, it takes shape! I love this one.

IMG_9990

Then you can add the flag corners.

IMG_9991

I just love the fluidity of this one, it’s so cute! I use this one all the time (or did I already say that many times? XD).

IMG_9992

#6 Intricate And Flowy

This one starts the same as the past two, one side up and one down. Draw the diagonal “folds”

IMG_9993

From those rectangles add one to each of those, the top one down, the bottom up (shown). Add the diagonal lines and then the little flag endings if you wish. (:

IMG_9994

This one’s fun if you want it to be a bit fancier. It’s fun!

IMG_9995

I hope you enjoyed all of these! Let me know in the comments which was your favorite!

I hope you’re having a great day!

Recent Letter Art… PART TWO!

Letter Art-3

Hello again!

I recently made a letter art post, though many more pictures have amassed in the good ole’ memory card, so I thought I would empty it until the next time! (which, I almost promise, won’t be a week from this one)

I hope you enjoy!

I love to theme my letters or make everything (inside and out) the same. This letter to my friend Bronwyn I kept the same, using the gold Tombow dual pen 026, and grey one, N89 and the bullet end of a back one to create a shadow effect and I also used the grey one for a border.

IMG_9908

I feel like keeping it cohesive and match-matchy makes letters really pretty and there are so many ways to change it up with the lettering and art and styles, so fun!

IMG_9906

I love creating wild, fun art on the envelopes. Though, if you’re using waterbased pens, be sure to seal it in something or else it will look like watercolor if it goes through rain–and you might not want that. XD

IMG_9646

Hehe. My friend’s name is IrisAnne, so I attempted to make the letters in her name different flowers. Failed attempt? XD

IMG_9647

I love using washi tape as borders, and lately I’ve been loving layering two tapes, or even three, for variety in color and shapes. It’s simple, but still fun!

IMG_9913

I layered this one as well. I love layering pattern on solid or vise versa. (Thanks to one of my pen pals for sending some silver washi tape. I love it!)

IMG_9917

For that letter I used a silver theme, with that same backdrop black shading as the first letter. OH! My brother got me some awesome pen+gear pastel envelopes for Christmas that have a sticky backs so that you don’t have to lick them. *ahhhhhhh* I DIDN’T KNOW THIS MAGIC WAS REAL. If you understand the mucho disgust in licking the envelope, you’ll love these.

IMG_9915

This one I just did a basic black font, but I went with a more script font than I normally use. I want to start adding more loops, but I don’t know, they scare me! (:

IMG_9918

I went very abstract and bright with this one. I wanted to include bunches of shapes. What do you think?

IMG_9663

This one’s pretty simple, another floral theme. This pen pal loves purple, so I tried to include that a good bit(:

IMG_9665

I experimented with a circular/abstract/mandala art in watercolor for this one. I really enjoyed the outcome! It was fun creating the shapes.

IMG_9670

I wanted to use a yellow envelope for this letter, so alongside the “sunny” (know where I’m going?XD) yellow, I drew a rather sketchy sun. I think it turned out pretty cute! I love yellow.

IMG_9657

I wrote my friend Sammi in French, so I addressed it (other than the actual address, I didn’t think the postman would be fluent. XD) in French, alongside a flower. I also use that same technique for a backdrop as before.

IMG_9902

I painted this pen pal’s name, but then I thought, “hmm… this needs some color.” VUA LA!   (is there an actual way to spell that?) Hehe. I just randomly placed oblong shapes in different colors everywhere.

IMG_9676

For the entering greeting in a letter like “Dear …” or “Hello, …” I like doing lettering and I usually close with lettering as well.

IMG_9675

This one I basically used my Tombow pen as a highlighter and lettered on top and added some random greenery. I did this to a lot of letters because I liked it, but I’l only show this one. It’s fun to do this in different colors. (:

IMG_9651

I love using bold washi tapes on the back with matching lettering. Ah, don’t you love washi tapes? ♥

IMG_9911

IMG_9914

(I use that washi tape combo a lot. XD)

IMG_9674

IMG_9650

Well, that’s all for now. I hope you enjoyed part two! I hope you’re all having a great day!

The Camera Shall Not Be Forgotten! // Recent Photography

Letter Art-2.png

Hello There!

Boy, I can’t remember the last time I did a photography post. I felt it was long overdue! I have pictures from November and December here. They’ve been piling up! I hope you enjoy.

Ah, back when there was color in the trees! I miss it, though I look forward to when everything buds and blooms, it’s just as beautiful!

IMG_8751.JPG

IMG_8750.JPG

DON’T DO THIS IF YOU DON’T LIVE ON A SLOW COUNTRY ROAD! xD Not the safest… but I liked the yellow with the red. (:

IMG_8754.JPGIMG_8753.JPG

This was one of those weird November days where you’re not sure if it’s cold or warm, it’s cloudy, no wind, etc. A perfect time for a tree photoshoot! XD

IMG_8757.JPG

IMG_8762.JPGIMG_8774.JPGIMG_8778.JPG

See what I have to put up with? Haha, Maisy was enjoying it as much (if not more, it seems) as I was.

IMG_8780
♥️

IMG_8781IMG_8796.JPG

This was a separate day. Isn’t this stretch just gorgeous? IMG_8901.JPG

One of my friends I was with is a gymnast, so she hopped in the picture and did some fancy thingI don’t know the nam of. So cool!

IMG_8904.JPGIMG_8908.JPGIMG_8882.JPG

The moon was something shining in my room one night, so i thought I’d take a photo of it. Isn’t the moon amazing?

IMG_8918.JPGIMG_8915

Lastly, I did a photoshoot with my piano teacher’s baby. Hehe.

IMG_8922.JPGIMG_8945.JPGIMG_8952.JPGIMG_8949.JPG

I was there for piano lessons, so my teacher let her sit with me. *melts*IMG_8958.JPGIMG_9141.JPG

Well, I hope you enjoyed! Let me know if you like these types of posts, and what you’d like me to post more of this year!

My Envelopes Have Art On Them! // Recent Letter Art

Letter Art.png

Hi there, friends!

I have written a lot of letters of late, and a few of them I have photographed, and I figured you all might enjoy!

I generally have done similar types of art, mostly lettering and some very Christmassy.

I had the phone sitting up playing music as I was doing this letter, so I thought, “Hey, that’s not a bad idea!” Hehe. It turned out pretty good, and I did it a few more times on other letters.

IMG_9108.JPG

This one was just simple, but I liked how clean and simple the lettering was. (And you just have to love Santa over in the corner!)

IMG_9131.JPG

I started doing lots of holly during December with this gold lettering. AH! I just lovemaking Christmas envelopes.

IMG_9168.JPG

I love to layer washi tapes on the back, and over them a wax seal or sticker. I love the affect. (The plaid washi tape is from Hobby Lobby and the yellow is from the Peach and Poppy Co. snail mail kit here)

IMG_9172.JPG

I made a collage on a envelope last year using wrapping paper, so I hath done it again. Funny, my penpal’s name is Joy, so it worked out perfectly! (:

IMG_9516.JPG

He’s just so jolly! XD

IMG_9174.JPG

I wrote a lot of letters one morning, so I did a little letter photoshoot. (:

IMG_9531.JPG

IMG_9535.JPG

I sealed them all similarly. Don’t you just love washi tape? (:

IMG_9539.JPG

IMG_9541.JPG

One of my favorite ways to letter is by using two Tombow Dual Brush pens, one slightly darker than the other, to create a fade effect. I did snowflakes, too, to give me a little snow in the midst of Georgia’s 65° degrees. (:

IMG_9545.JPG

Who knew letters could provide so much shading and varying angles? XD

IMG_9543.JPG

I love filling in all the closed-in spaces with color. It adds a little “pop” (:

IMG_9002.JPG

This one I used a black Tombow dual brush pen and my beloved white signo broad gel pen. Kinda interesting!

IMG_9000.JPG

I hope you all enjoyed this, and let me know if you’d like to see more soon!

I hope you’re all having a wonderful start to your new year!

Well, Hello, 2020! // January Bullet Journal Setup

DECEMBER-2.png

Well… 2020. You have a ring to ya!

Happy New Year, friends!

Have you ever accidentally taking a break? Well, I believe that hath happened to me the fine December past. XD Whoops!

Well, I’m back now, and I have a new bullet journal I really wanted to break in.

To start out, I want to show you my 2020 bujo! I’m thinking of a name, any suggestions?

I really wanted an Archer and Olive bullet journal. They’re just so beautiful, but they were constantly sold out, and they came back in stock the other day, but I wouldn’t have gotten one until mid-way through January, so maybe next year!

I found, after searching for “like journals” I found this Tekukor bullet journal on Amazon. Actually, i’m very well impressed. It’s very much similar to the A+O bullet journals: cloth cover with gold embossed design, 160 gsm paper (Ahh) and 192 dot grid pages. And it came in two days! (Can we take a moment to appreciate Amazon prime??)

If you’re thinking about getting a bullet journal, so far this, and Minimalism Art, are great ones!

IMG_9637.JPG

There’s always that one first page where only one side has dots, so I just put a opening page. I used a black Tombow dual brush pen, a hard tip (my sweet) Tombow fudenosuke brush pen, and a white signo broad gel pen.

IMG_9597.JPG

I added a short quote to start off the year, “Do what you can, with what you have, where you are” by Roosevelt.

To the right I have my “year at a glance” page.

IMG_9599.JPG

I use certain color for different things, such as Holidays, Events, and Birthdays. It’s also helpful for me to see what days are on what days of the week and such. I refer to it a lot throughout the year, it’s very helpful!

img_9602.jpg

Ah, now January, at last!

I used a little flower theme I made up I call “September” (you can see it here). I liked it best from 2019, so I chose it again for January. I put my calendar to the right, though I only fit 24 squares on the one page so could have enough room.

IMG_9605.JPG

I stretched the remaining days over to the next pages. Since I had extra room at the bottom, I put the goals froms the month of January down there, and added the same leaves as in the previous page.

My habits for the month (to the right) include 5 or more cups of water, reading my bible daily, practice all my instruments *sweats*, and my daily skin routine.

IMG_9612.JPG

I made a “to do” page and a “reminders” page side by side. I like how neat and simple it looks (now, at least. XD)

IMG_9617.JPG

This is my monthly money tracker, I started this in November and I really like it. It’s helpful to see the amount I spend and save.

IMG_9618.JPG

I made a page for books I want to read in 2020, so I’m hoping the books on these shelves will all have titles soon! I made this page into bookshelf form. It makes me happy to glance upon.

IMG_9621.JPG

My January letter tracker has the same green vine as the opening page, but otherwise, it’s fairly simple! I check the little “stamp” in the corner when I’ve responded. It’s very helpful for me, I often get lost in responding quickly or knowing if  I have or not. I wonder if I’ve ever sent a pen pal two letters with the same content. XD

img_9625.jpg

This is a new page I’ve added to my bullet journaling. I needed something to help me track savings, and what I’m saving for. I hope to meet my goals by 2021!

IMG_9626.JPG

My last pages are (left) my January blog post ideas page. I have a lot of ideas for the new year, but please be sure to let me know what you want to see! the next page, instead of “resolutions” I put 2020 hopes. (I don’t know, something about the word resolutions…)

IMG_9628.JPG

I hope y’all enjoyed seeing this, and let me know what you’re looking forward to for 2019–no, (ugh, we’re in for about 4 months of this. XD) 2020!

I hope you’re having a wonderful day!

DECEMBER? IS IT REALLY YOU? // BUJO Setup

DECEMBER.png

Wow. Wow. WOw. wOW. WOW!

Guys! It’s DECEMBER! The month of candy canes and songs that include bells and presents and trees and the end of a year… and DECADE! And most importantly, the day we celebrate Jesus’s birth!

So along with that, I have a bullet journal that’s excited to see you for the last time, it’s pages are full of lettering and dates and events and pictures and quotes. 2020 bullet journal is coming, and the 2019 is ready to be shown.

I wanted a simple design, not anything too flashy and big, so I chose candy canes. I decided not to outline them on this first page as to not compete with the lettering and lines. The lettering I chose was black and I stretches the lines from the beginning and end of the pages.

 

Another thing I wanted to include was Christmas songs. I added little lyrics from a song on most of the pages.

IMG_9063.JPG

I wanted something festive for the habit tracker, so I stuck with the candy cane theme from the first page. Each stripe is the day of the month. My habits this month: Floss teeth, 5+ cups water, Read my bible, and Music Practice.

 

The next page is the to-do’s, and I used ornaments for the bullet points. I used the same lettering stretched across the pages as in the beginning (it’s throughout).

IMG_9065.JPG

This page I have my progress for my piano students. I really like this to remind me if they paid for multiple weeks and what they’re learning and such. If you’re a teacher, this is very helpful!

The next page is the goals page. I used little peppermints for the bullets again. I wanted include that theme regularly.

IMG_9067.JPG

For my reminders page I used little exclamation points in red. If you’re someone who easily forgets things like me, you will really like a reminders page. Very helpful!

My letter tracker for the month I used red and white ornaments. The little silver knob that holds the hook is what I’ll check off if I’ve emailed the persona letter back. I’m excited to use it!

IMG_9069.JPG

At this point, I was trying to fill a lot of pages with fun Christmassy things. That’s what these next few pages are(:

IMG_9070.JPGIMG_9071.JPGIMG_9075.JPGIMG_9076.JPG

I’m excited to use the page on the right. I wanted to include reading the bible this whole month in order of certain verses, so I chose the Luke version of Jesus’s birth. Chapter 2 of Luke has 52 verses, so I stretched it out over 25 days.

These last two pages I have my favorite Christmas songs to sing. People, my Mom started me early on Amy Grant Christmas albums and I haven’t stopped! XD. Iconic Christmas!

The next page I have my money tracker. I actually stopped this and recently resumed for November (Which doesn’t feel like has happened yet, but it’s finished!), and I really like it. It’s helpful to see your monthly income changes and expenses and savings.

Well, that about wraps this up! Can you all believe it’s DECEMBER? And happy thanksgiving! I hope you all had a wonderful one. Before you go, here are some fun snowflakes I hung in my room by inspiration from my dear friend Samantha! I love walking in and seeing them. So fun!
