If you liked the bamboo cover page from above, then I’m sure you’ll enjoy this one too! I love this jungle-themed cover page and it’s only going to look better once it’s all colored in.

This August monthly cover is a great example if you want to go with a space theme but don’t like the constellation idea from above! I love the planet and spaceship doodles all over the cover. Plus, the August title would look great on its own as well if you want a more minimal and easy look
