Artistic Planning For Beginners

Course Description:

I’ll admit it: I have found myself in a planning rut more often than not. It can be difficult to fall back into a routine once you’ve neglected your planner for so long. I struggled for years to keep a consistent planning routine, and my life fell into chaos each time. Planning was boring, and nothing could keep me motivated.

Nothing, that is, until I discovered artistic planning. By adding something as simple as a brushstroke of color, I began looking forward to planning. I was able to bring order to my life and be productive while also indulging my creative side.

With this course, I will show you what artistic planning is and why it could be the right planning system for you. Then, we’ll dive into what materials you’ll need to get started and how to get into a creative mindset. Finally, I’ll show you various planning spreads I’ve used in the past and help you figure out which spreads will work best for you.

Great for beginners

I really liked how Shelby made it accessible and kept reinforcing the idea of done not perfect. Definitely something I want to adopt in multiple areas of my life.

Didactic Intro to Watercolor in Bullet Journal

A nice pep talk to encourage the usage of watercolor in bullet journal! A great way of introduction, especially for beginners who don't journal but want to. It also gives a nice and new aspect to watercolor and their versatility.

Good overview of bullet journaling.

This was a nice introduction to bullet journaling. Not too overwhelming and intimidating.
