WHAT I USED

  • Gaming Collection
  • Purple brush pen (Tombow dual brush pen)
  • Blue brush pen (Tombow dual brush pen)
  • Grey brush pen (Tombow dual brush pen)

  • Black marker

These materials were what I used for reference, but you may use any supplies you have on hand :)

I had a lot of fun coming up with a gaming themed monthly spread! So let’s set it up together!

We’re going to draw a simple version of the Nintendo switch and add a calendar where the screen is supposed to be. You can also draw a computer screen, a gameboy or anything else you like!

Let’s start off by marking a 4 x 4 grid for each of the days. Add an extra column on the left and right so we can turn these into the controllers. I’m placing the whole thing towards the left of the page so I can add a to-do list on the other side. Feel free to experiment with different layouts and consoles to make the spread unique!

Next let’s go over everything with a black marker and add some buttons on the controller.

Using a thinner black pen let’s draw some lines inside the grid to separate the days.

Next I’m drawing a gameboy for the to-do list and placing it tilted to make the page a little more fun. You can skip this step or change it up to add different sections that you need!

Using a marker let’s add the controls and a screen for the gameboy. 

To brighten the page, let’s colour in the consoles! I’m using blue and purple for the Nintendo switch and leaving the gameboy as is. You can colour it with anything you like, add a pattern or draw your favourite gaming characters!

Next let’s fill in the calendar. I’m using a green brush pen to highlight the days before writing it down with a black pen. You can also use the journaling pack to fill it out!

To give the page a little sparkle, I’m using the dates stickers from the planner kit. 

The gameboy to-do list still looks a little empty so let’s highlight alternate lines with any colour of your choice, I’m using light grey here.

Let’s set down the title using the journaling kit or you can write it out if you like!

Finally lets finish up the spread by adding stickers wherever there are empty spots and we’re all done!
