thanks for picking up bullet journal journal #1! this is a collection of scans from my first completed bullet journal. i started it in october of 2017 and finished it in april of 2018. the journal i used is a brunnen kompagnon purchased at the academic bookstore in helsinki. i loved using this notebook, but it is sadly very difficult to find in america, even online. some other materials i used in this journal are: tombow dual brush pens, stabilo fineliners, stabilo pastel highlighters, stickers from my collection, and cutouts from various newspapers and sketchbooks. the thing that i have most enjoyed about bullet journaling is the trial and error of it all – if a certain layout doesn’t work, i can try something new so i’m not stuck using it the next week or month. generally i did a “monthly spread” each month, a “weekly spread” at the beginning of each week, and then use the blank pages after each week to journal, draw, write down ideas, what have you. i tried to include a variety of interesting -looking pages. included in this zine are drawings, collages, diary pages, weekly to-do lists, monthly trackers of my emotions, scraps from my life, and tarot interpretations. i carried my journal with me everywhere across helsinki, london, paris, memphis, jackson, and all the places i was in between. bullet journal journal #1 is an incredibly intimate look into my life– i hope you enjoy it. if you enjoyed my zine and want to know more about me and my work, please visit me on instagram at @likls. thanks for reading! 2
