Going with a space theme in your bullet journal? If you are, this would be a great cover to try or pull inspiration from. I personally love how the planets surround the April font and I think it would love great even without the watercolor background. I’m not great at doodling or using watercolors yet so I’m definitely going to use the layout and apply my look / theme to it. Don’t just think about your upcoming month, PLANET!
Flowers & Crystals

How adorable is this GEM of an April monthly cover? I love how the doodles come in from the edge and look random but it’s still very clean with the outside circle keeping everything contained. Plus, the variation of crystals and flowers makes it something that you could use with a nice variety of themes. I think you might have found a diamond with this spread!

Don’t worry, if you can’t actually fold origami, it’s a lot easier to just draw them. I love how they look like they’re hanging from the ceiling. Plus, the way the April font is set up… that’s definitely something I could do! Whether you do just one paper crane doodle or multiple, I think this cover would look amazing in your bullet journal. Fold your way to a brand new month!

I know I’ve covered a few watercolor cover pages but… WOW, this one is amazing. As a kid, I could only dream of treehouses like these! I love how much depth there is to the spread with all the branches, ladders and addition little treehouses. If your the type of person that can paint this kind of cover, I’m super jelly. The only problem with this cover is that you have to guess the secret password!

The first thing I think when I see this monthly cover is “Mad Scientist”. The drawing is absolutely amazing and I love how they have the molecules in the background in a super light color so you don’t even see them at first. The longer you look at this spread the crazier the concoction gets! While I definitely won’t be drawing those beakers anytime soon, I do really like the molecule ideas and will definitely try to work them in if they fit with my theme for the month. I think Bill Nye would approve!
Donut Monthly Cover

In my house, donuts are part of our Sunday routine. There’s nothing better than a vanilla dipped donut with sprinkles! I mean, seriously, those smoothies and protein shakes can take a break for one day right?! At least, that’s what I tell myself. This monthly cover is super fun and would go perfectly in your bullet journal if you doing any sort of food theme. Donut count this one out!
