I constantly doodle ideas that I get for headers, dividers, hand lettering styles and so on because I probably won’t remember them when I’m creating a new collection, daily and so on. Part of the fun with the bullet journal is to ’decorate’ it, to make it pretty and make it your own. And I like to come up with new ideas, new ways to write things or decorate my collections, hence my need for some ’Visual Inspiration Collections’.
I get a whole lot of inspiration and ideas from other bullet journals that I save on my Pinterest boards. I also get ideas from many other places like work, reading magazines, or just plain old sitting down with a blank piece of paper in front of me and start doodling.
My process is that I start with doodling a rough sketch in a separate notebook, a notebook I have only for scribbling stuff in. This way I feel free to try a lot of different styles. Or to try things that I’m not quite sure will look any good.
Then when I’ve filled out a page or two I migrate the doodles into my bullet journal. I only migrate the ones I like, of course :)
The first time I migrated my doodles I put them on the next empty spread that was available in my bullet journal. Then I realized I’d rather keep them all collected in one section, so now I draw them at the very end of my BuJo. That way I don’t have to decide now how many spreads I think I’ll be able to fill, I just go from the back and move forward, one spread at a time.
