Hot Air Balloon Theme Monthly Layouts
The bullet journal monthly layout page is very useful if you like to mark the important dates and events. Personally, I mostly stick to weekly layouts. So, I’ve collected fewer ideas for month layouts. Here are the ones that I liked the most.
1. Hot Air Balloons Monthly Spread
The sky is the limit! Love the opening note in the month layout by bullseye.journaling. The colour theme of pink and orange is also very aesthetic. Take inspirations from this lovely layout to create your monthly calendar.
2. Monhtly Spread And Planner
Loved the hot air balloon winter carnival theme? Take inspiration from this lovely layout by paysbulletjournal. Along with the calendar, it also has blocks for major areas of planning.
Hot Air Balloon Themed Mood Tracker
Your monthly bujo is incomplete without the mood tracker page. Here’s an interesting way to track your moods of the month using the layout created by letteringthisandthat. Draw a giant hot hair balloon with these patterns. Pick your colour theme and assign a colour to every mood. And, you’re ready!
If you’ve more time in hand, you can create a more elaborate mood tracker like this one by miloe.joanne. There’s one hot air balloon for every day. Each of these vary in shape and size. You can create a similar spread by creating hot air balloon doodles in your own unique manner.
Hot Air Balloon Themed Habit Tracker
Tracking our habits is the easiest way to make sure that we make progress. I love this combination of habit tracker and mood tracker by bujoaddict__. The 3 word quote ‘still I rise’ sums it all. Often, we tend to lose touch with ourselves and forget all about staying consistent. Your habit tracker is your reminder that it’s okay if you didn’t show up for a while. Show up today, rise today and do what needs to be done.
That’s all! I hope you loved my collection of the best hot air balloon theme bullet journal.
