Some of my favorite pens to use in bullet journaling are the Tombow TwinTones. There are so many colors to choose from. So bullet journal layouts are sure to bring you joy. I love that you can use the fine point tip for precision designs and the bullet tip for thicker lines to create fun contrasts.
I also really love the Tombow Fudenosuke (hard or soft tip) for adding some brush lettering to my layouts.
The Tombow TwinTones also don’t tend to bleed through the pages of the journal. So you can use all the pages of your journal to create these simple layouts.
Take a look at these 20 bullet journal frame ideas. They all start with the basic square or rectangle shape. Just adding a little something extra like dots, curves, dashes, double lines, or a combination of the two, you can create some easy frames to layout your week.
