Leaves, leaves and more leaves. It seems that I'm sweeping the apartment almost 3 times a day because the leaves keep blowing in. So much so that I've now invested in a leaf blower. :P

Even though these pesky leaves keep trailing in behind me, I can't help but admire their beautiful shapes and colors. So with fall in full swing, I've decided to kick off the re-start of my #drawwithjeng tutorials with oak leaves and acorns! These shapes are super simple and can be layered to create the perfect journal spread.  I added some color to this drawing, but it also looks great in black and white.

Instagram Challenge: #serifwritingchallenge

Instagram Challenge: #serifwritingchallenge

My theme for February: chic, modern and luxe. For me, this means clean lines and classic fonts. And it doesn't get more classic than a good serif font.

Serif: "a slight projection finishing off a stroke of a letter in certain typefaces." A classic serif font would be Times New Roman. With beautiful handwritten fonts and modern calligraphy, we have really turned bullet journaling around and have been creating beautiful spreads. But I haven't seen many bullet journal headers utilizing a serif font. I know for me, these fonts are difficult to draw consistently. Luckily I've been able to cook up some really helpful stickers that I've been using in my bullet journal.

Dynamic Kanban Board in your Bullet Journal

I practice the Kanban methodology at work. It's a process that started with Toyota and has been frequently leveraged by software developer teams. I've had great success using it at work and figured I could start adding it to my bullet journal to track the projects I've been working on for INKBYJENG Etsy.

Bullet Journaling For Your Inner Perfectionist

Bullet Journaling For Your Inner Perfectionist

Within the last two months I have become a regular user of the bullet journal system. My sister-in-law mentioned that she was using it and had an Instagram account for it. I was already familiar with the system having seen Ryder Carroll's kickstarter, but I wasn't convinced that it would help me. But after a finding a ton of inspiration online, I knew I had to try. It has greatly improved my daily routine and has really helped me to rekindle my love for drawing.
