DIY Moon Phase Planner Spread

Hey guys! This is a project I originally shared on Tombow’s instagram account, but as you know I’m a huge space nerd, so I wanted to share it here too.

Today I’m  showing you how to make a Lunar Calendar Spread in your bullet journal/planner!

Supplies:

  • Planner or Journal. For my planner this year, I’m using a Bloom Daily Planners Dot Journaling Planner. I added one of my Galaxy Girl stickers to the cover to customize it , but I love the marble background too.
  • Tombow Twin Tones
  • Tombow 1500 Colored Pencils
  • Ruler

Ste one: Use a ruler & Twin Tone markers to draw out 2 sections at the bottom of your page, and write each month name with 6 on each side.

The bullet tip of the Twin Tone is fantastic for monoline lettering (a single line, not a brush pen) like this. Draw 4 circles for each month, and fill them in according to the lunar calendar. Next Using a pink Twin Tone, I wrote out the dates for each of the moon phases above the circles.

It’s @studio.katie back to show you how to add a lunar calendar in your @bloomdailyplanners planner. First step: Use a ruler and @tombowusa TwinTone markers to draw out 2 sections at the bottom of your page, and write each month. The TwinTone’s tips are fantastic for monoline lettering –you can choose between a broad and extra-fine on either side. Draw 4 circles for each month, and fill them in according to the lunar calendar. Using a pink TwinTone, I wrote out the dates for each of the moon phases.⁣ .⁣ Did you know we have a lunar eclipse this month? There’s a “Super Blood Wolf Moon Eclipse” on the 20th, so you can add that to your calendar too!.In my next post I’ll show you how to add a moon sketch to the top of the page! -@studio.katie #tombow #tombowusa #tombow2018dt⁣ ⁣💕 #bulletjournal #bulletjournaladdict #bulletjournaljunkies #bulletjournalcommunity #bulletjournaladdicts #bulletjournaling #bujo #bujojunkies #bujoinspire #bujoaddict #bujocommunity #bujolove #bulletjournallove

Step two: Now let’s finish decorating the spread.

Trace a circle onto the top of the page, and lightly color it in with a light pink 1500 Colored Pencil. The trick to colored pencils is to color in light layers, so keep adding colors but not adding to much pressure as you work. Using a darker shade of pink, add in the craters of the moon. You can also pull up an image of the moon on your computer to use as a reference.
