Watching the stars and seeing the unexpected shooting star is something I love to do.
Several years back, my husband (boyfriend at the time) packed his truck with pillows, blankets, snacks, and drinks. It was around 9 at night and we headed out.
I had no idea where we were going but was excited about the journey. A couple hours later we ended up at a dry lakebed in the middle of nowhere with no lights and nobody in sight.
I didn’t know it at the time, but the Perseide meteor shower was in full swing. We climbed in the back of the truck and watched the sky come to life. Around three that morning, we headed home…we couldn’t be late for work.
This layout doesn’t even compare to that night sky, but it sure does bring back wonderful memories.
Here’s how this layout was created in this dot grid bullet journal.
With a circle punch, I punched and washi taped 8 circles to cover parts of the bullet journal I didn’t want covered in purple.
Because August ends and September begins this week, I hand lettered both months inside the first circle with this brush letter pen.
I decided to heat emboss some stars so they’d appear white over the purple. I used this star stamp, this embossing ink pad, and this embossing powder (Need more info on embossing? Tutorials and all supplies needed here and here).
To help give the layout and the circles a bit more dimension, I decided to add more stamping. I used my acrylic block, a thumbtack stamp, my days of the week stamps from The Sassy Club, and this black ink pad.
Supplies I used –
Bullet Journal & Circle Punch
Purple Ink and Foam Applicator
Embossing Powder and Embossing Ink Pad
Rubber Stamps, Acrylic Blocks, and Black Ink Pad
