    How To Decorate Your Bullet Journal

    I changed how I use my bullet journal this year. It feels mad to say it, but my bullet journal was getting me down last year. So in 2022, I decided to change the way I used my bullet journal. It was going to be a place I could decorate and be creative with no expectations, no sharing on social media. It was going to be just for me, (yes I understand the irony of writing this post).  But the weird thing is it helped. I don’t feel any expectations. I don’t feel like my bullet journal should look a certain way. And I’m much happier for it. I’ve said…

    How I Use Notion To Stay Organised

    I was a little late to the Notion bandwagon when I started using it last year. It was a little tricky to get started but I watched many YouTube videos and figured it out. I have to admit I find it useful for keeping certain documents organised. So today I want to share how I use Notion to stay organised and also highlight some of the areas where Notion doesn’t work so well.  How I Use Notion To Stay Organised What Is Notion Notion is a piece of free productivity software.

    Craeft by Alexander Langlands (and Calligraphy)

    One of the most interesting classes I took at university was run by the fine art department. This class was about looking at spaces, the outcome was to be a response to a specific space. I ended up making a lantern which told the story of a witch trial which took place very close to me. Something which came out of this project was this idea that a connection to the land had been lost through the persecution of witches. Witches were more like herbalists and this knowledge had been lost because of the witch trials. It was an idea which fascinated me but as a design student, I was…

    5 Hand Lettering Styles For Your Bullet Journal

    Today I want to share some hand lettering styles to use in your bullet journal. I love decorating my bullet journal with hand lettering. I find it a great way to practise my hand lettering as well as something fun to look at. I’ve tried to come up with some styles of hand lettering rather than specific fonts. I think this should give you far more flexibility with how you choose to letter in your bullet journal.  But first I just want to share some info on my favourite art supplies and a wee typography lesson which will help you get better at hand lettering.  5 Hand Lettering Styles For…

    What I Keep In My Bag For Art School

    A long time ago I decided that at some point during my university education I would share a what’s in my bag type post. I know how cliched these types of posts have become but I wanted to do it. Just based on reading a few other similar posts I think what I take with me to university is quite different compared to other students. I’m not saying this in an oh I’m so special sort of way. But art students have different needs compared to English or science students so I thought it would be interesting to share what I keep in my bag for art school.  If things…
