The Dot Calendar:
In September, I began using the dot calendar created by Camilla from @creative.pine.apple on Instagram. Her idea behind this was getting a month at glance, but still getting the details necessary.
This month I used a autumny theme for my colors and revolved them around the most prevalent events in my life for the month. My color code for October is:
grey – class
violet – personal/football
orange – event
auburn – research
dark grey – birthdays
As I do for all of my layouts, I sketch it out in pencil first and then go over in pen. This method definitely helps me limit my mistakes (and the amount of white out that I put on my paper). Below are two quick videos of how I drew up my October Monthly Layout. The full length videos are posted on my YouTube.
