In the bullet journal tradition, March themes are ‘supposed to be’ green. I’ve been wanting to do a general plants theme, but I was in a bit of a time crunch and not feeling particularly confident about creating the vibe that I have in mind, so I decided to go with cacti instead.

I am so happy with how this month’s title page came out. The colours just pop and glow, the definition on the spines is great and I had a lot of fun painting it. It took me some time throughout the month, but it was definitely worth the effort, I’m very pleased.

I’ve always lived my life by the principle that I can do anything that I set my mind to and that I create my own opportunities.

Bloom where you are planted.

This quote, that I’ve mainly seen being attributed to Mary Engelbreit, reflects that perfectly for me. No matter how barren the ground a cactus finds itself in, eventually it will bloom and show its glorious beauty.

I had a lot of fun using this page and colouring in the flowers in all the different colours I chose to document my exercise. At the end of the month it ended up being a vibrant happy mix of colours that is beautiful to look at.

A quick and easy page to track my symptoms with was decorated with a cute little illustration of a group of cacti living their best lives and some washi tape to accompany it for that scrapbook vibe.

I really like the font that I chose for this month’s theme, called ‘Tequila‘. It has a bit of a South American vibe to it, which is what I associate with cacti. So cute and a nice change from all the complicated handwriting fonts I usually struggle with!

This cactus was such a joy to colour throughout the month and it looks great in different shades of green, yellow and the occasional blue.

I kept the dailies simple, with little cactus illustrations to accent the pages.

Overall this month’s theme was relatively simple, but with just enough opportunity to put my paintbrushes to paper and experiment a bit with colours and techniques. I’m calling this another success!
