About This Class

In this class I want to show you how to create a bullet journal that will inspire you to be more creative and help you stay organized.  

I will show you:

  • how to use the downloable bullet journal templates I made for this class.
  • how to make your own lists and templates.
  • how to make colorful illustrations to decorate your journal.

I rely on these lists to stay organized as a teacher and an artist. I make notes about my illustrations, I make lists and organize my tasks, and I use journaling and doodling to generate creativity throughout my day.  With this process you can easily combine pictures, text, and drawings to create tons of different layouts for journaling, list making, and scheduling!

If you are new to Procreate, don’t worry, I’ll cover all the steps I use to create my journals from scratch, and show you some advanced techniques for coloring and embellishing your own journal.

All you need to take this class is an iPad.  I use the Apple Pencil in this class, but you could also use your finger or a stylus.  You can download the templates and watercolor brushes here.

1. Creative Bullet Journaling on Your iPad in Procreate: Hi everyone. Today I want to show you how to create a bullet journal that will inspire you to be more creative and help you stay organized. I rely on these list to stay organized as a teacher and an artist. I make notes about my illustrations, I make lists and organize my tasks. I use organizing and doodling to generate creativity throughout my day. With this process, you can easily combine pictures, text, and drawings to create tons of different layouts for journaling, list making, and scheduling. I wanted to share with you some of the elements I use in my journal so you don't feel like you're starting from scratch. I'll show you how to use the templates I gave you and how to create your own templates that you can reuse in your journals. If you're new to Procreate, don't worry, I'll cover all the steps I used to create my journals from scratch and show you some advanced techniques for coloring and embellishing your own journal. All you need to take this class as your ipad. I'll be using the Apple Pencil, but you could use any stylus or your finger. Let's get started. 2. Getting Started: The first thing I want to do is show you how to import the Master document into your procreate. Open "Procreate" and you'll see these options here. Select "Import photo". We want to click "Import", and then I save everything to Dropbox. I think it's a lot easier because it is online so you don't have to use up the storage on your iPad and you can have it on all of your devices. Probably the easiest thing would be to download these documents onto your computer and then put them in your Dropbox. Then you just have them always here ready to import into Procreate. When you open this document, you'll see the title of the document and then you'll see the option to download. I'm just going to click the "Download" button. This will take a little bit of time, it's a pretty large file because there's a lot of layers, so you may have to wait just a few seconds for the WiFi to catch up. Then the files automatically opened in Procreate, and you can see this looks like a blank document here, but if you open your Layers panel, you have a lot of different options. I made a few templates that are good to get you started, but you'll probably be making your own templates pretty soon. This is just a good place to start. The first one is some boxes. I have a few different styles of boxes, and you can write text on the banners here. You can rotate these and I'll show you how to do all that later. Also, some banners and bubbles, some texts separators. You can write texts, use this as a border, use it as an underline. You'll see we'll play around with these throughout the class. There's also a texture paper that I like to use sometimes. It's a watercolor texture, it looks nice with the watercolors I'm going to give you today. The next one is just a grid, this makes it really easy to make your boxes straight, and then also dot. Some people like to use dot paper instead of grid paper. I also included a few pieces of texts that we'll use throughout the class, so you may use these, you may not. I included three different fonts, the playlist font. This more playful, action jackson font, and the RM Typewriter font. You can use these letters or you can just trace over them with another color or a certain brush. Then I also included the days of the week and the months of the year. This is just my template that I use. You may want to totally change this and customize this, and you can certainly do that on your own iPad. Rather than working in the Master document, I'm actually going to create a new file because Procreate limits the amount of layers you can use in a file. It's best not to work on your actual Master document, we'll just use that to pull elements from later on. I'm going to create a New Canvas. Let's just do a regular paper size, 8.5 by 11. I want to show you the pens that I usually use for bullet journaling. Most of these are pens that came with Procreate, so the first one is the shale brush. I grabbed these from the calligraphy, inking and sketching sections. We have the shale brash, the gel pen, the technical pen, monoline, script, and the narinder pencil. Those are pretty much the only ones that I use in terms of what came with Procreate. Then for my watercolor elements, I made a couple of brushes and I shared those with you in the Dropbox document. You can add those to your Procreate by just clicking the "Plus" symbol and then click "Import" and go back to your Dropbox. If you save these in your Dropbox and then you can find it in your Dropbox and click "Import". I won't do that since I've already got these in my folder. You can see the pens that I work with, I keep these in a separate folder. If you want to do that, just go to the pen. Here's the gel pen, for example, swipe left, click "Duplicates", and now you have two gel pens, and then click and drag it into the folder, so then it's added to your bullet journaling list. If you make a mistake, you can always swipe left and delete the brush. One thing I do a lot with bullet journaling is create straight lines. If you grab the monoline brush for example, and you want to create a straight line. Let's grab a black here and I want a new layer. It's not easy to make a straight line just with your hand, but Procreate has this nice feature where you can click and drag and that creates a straight line. Then if you put both of your fingers down on the screen, the other hand, that creates a perfect 90 degree angle, and you can also go 45 and back to horizontal. That's a really nice feature. It makes it really easy to draw boxes for your journal, so that's something we'll do a lot in this class today. The last thing you'll need for getting set up is to start thinking about your fonts. Your font can be your handwriting, or it can be a font that you get online. Just make sure it's a font that's okay for personal use, and if you're going to sell this or put it on your website, that it's okay for commercial use as well. But you may just want to start by playing around with your own handwriting. If you grab some of these pens, and just play around with how you usually write. I write in a short wide way, I might try also writing in a tall all caps way or writing in cursive and also changing your width of your brushes. I usually make my Ws rounded. What if I made my Ws more angled? I would encourage you to play around with your own handwriting for a while and see how many different variations can you make on your own handwriting. One note here, if you notice that the pen seems a little shaky, if you don't like how your lines are looking, click on the "Pen", go to "Stroke" and if you increase your Streamline, the program will automatically make your line more smooth, so it's easier to make a curve that's not wobbly. With all of your pens, you're probably going to want to play around with the Streamline to get it to a point where it works just like you like, I tend to like gel pens and I like them to be about halfway up on the Streamline. That just makes a really nice line, that smooth and doesn't show any wobble, but you can totally do this in your own style. One last thing you might try is working with a few different layers. If I grab my narinder pencil and I write the word "Write." I could then go to a new layer and use that as a structure. What if I took my monoline pen? Let's make that a little smaller and just wind around the letters to create a bubble letter effect. Go online, find some fonts that you like and see why do you like those fonts and how could you adapt to your own handwriting to be more like those fonts. I'll continue playing on this page and speed up my video just so you can see some options. But this may be a good place to start just to help you loosen up with your journaling and see how easy it is to write and draw in Procreate. 3. Boxes and Lines: Let's go ahead and make a list. I'll click the plus symbol. Create custom size. I'm going to choose paper size 8.5 by 11. But you could do this in any size, whatever size you like your sketch books or journals to be, then click "Create". I want to bring in some text. I'm going to have this be my to-do list for Monday. I want to bring in some text and then some boxes to help me stay organized. Go back to my gallery, go to my master document, and I think I want to grab an arrow to let the text of Monday be underlined. I'm making sure i'm on that layer where the arrow is. Click "Select", make sure free hand is selected. Then i'm just going to circle that arrow, make sure I get all the parts of the arrow but none of the surrounding objects. Then click that little dot to set the selection. Then i'm going to take three fingers and just slowly pull down. You have to put all three fingers down firmly and pull down. Then I want to copy that. If we cut and paste, it'll cut it out of this layer and put it onto a new layer. I don't want that. If we copy and paste, it'll copy it from this layer so it won't delete it from the layer. It'll just copy it and paste it onto a new layer. But I wanted to take this into a whole other document, so i'm going to just click "Copy". Then I can go back to my gallery. Go to my new document that i'm working on and pull my three fingers down just like we did in the last one and click "Paste". There's my arrow that I just brought in from the other document. Now one [inaudible] with these elements, you don't want to resize them unless you're willing to re-draw them. You can see if I resize this, all the proportions get messed up. This looks really thick, these look way too thin. If you want to keep this at the same size, then that's perfectly fine. You can use this element. But if you want to change the size, let's say I want to make this a little bit bigger and wider. That looks okay, but it is getting a little bit blurry. If you wanted it to be the size, you can do these same steps, create a new layer, and then just redraw the arrow just as it is. Let's go ahead and draw over this layer. I'm going to get my monoline pen with a medium size brush over on the right here. I'm on a new layer, i'm going to make my arrow layer somewhat transparent. Then on my new layer, I'll just draw this arrow exactly as it is. You can do this with any of the elements that are on the master document. You can use them exactly as they are, or you can totally change them and make them your own. It's really up to you. I'll trace the small details first, then i'm going to go in and do the straight line. The important thing is to start your straight line at the right place. Click and drag, and it doesn't have to be perfect because once you get to the end, it snaps into place. Then I can just draw these little pieces off the side. Then I can make my original layer invisible. Now I have this new layer that isn't blurry and it's the perfect size for this document. That's my first element. I also want to go to my master doc and bring in some text. Since this is a Monday list, i'm going to grab the text Monday. You could just handwrite this. It's totally up to you. Sometimes I'll write these by hand, but sometimes I like to use this copying method. I'm doing the same thing I did last time. I'm making sure i'm on that layer of Monday. I'm dragging down three fingers, copy. Go back to my gallery. Drag down three fingers and paste. The same issue applies for the text. You wouldn't want to resize this too much because as you can see, it gets a little bit blurry. If I wanted to resize this, I would have to trace over the text. I'm going to do the same process that we did with the arrow. This time I'll use the shale brush. I'm going to make that first layer a little bit transparent so I can see more easily, and I'll just trace over this text. Now I'll make my original layer go away. Then I can reduce the opacity of this a little bit if I want it to look more like a charcoal pencil or something like that. Then I may reduce the opacity of my arrow a little bit just so they match each other. But that's totally up to you. Next I want to bring in some boxes. I'm going to go to "My Master Doc". Let's grab the line paper just so we can draw our own boxes. I'm going to just grab this whole layer, click the dot, copy, go back to my gallery, and then i'm going to paste this graph paper into this whole document. Let's reduce the opacity of that quite a bit so we can really see well, I'll move this down below my other layers so it's out of my way. Let's grab the monoline pencil to make our boxes. I want to be sure I'm on a new layer. I don't want to disturb any of these other layers because I may want to move those around later, so I like those staying independent. On that new layer, I'm just going to choose a box size here. I think I'm going to make three boxes. I want to make these the right size so that at least three can fit. I'm grabbing a black ink, making sure I'm on the new layer, and I'm going to click and drag. We can do our trick if you want this to be perfectly straight up and down, where you hold down both fingers and that will keep it at a 90 degree angle. As I'm doing this, you'll see sometimes I make a mistake, and I'll tap two fingers to step back, or if you want to redo something, tap three fingers to step forward. I didn't like how that line turned out, so I'm going to try it again. That's the great thing about this process, it's not like journaling on paper where after you make a mark with pen, that mark is set in stone. With this, you can keep making changes throughout the piece, and I think that takes a lot of the pressure off. Sometimes I'll go in and just make sure my corners look okay. All right. That's good. Now, I think I want to have a little section here where I can write some text vertically. Let's put a line right here as a barrier. We can do that as a straight line, or we could do that, add a little bit of drawing and do some stitches there. It's totally up to you. Now that we have that box, we can just copy that and let that be the same for all three boxes. I am going to move this over a little bit, and I'm using my grid to kind of center things. Then, let's duplicate that layer. I put it in the same spot, and then let's duplicate that one too, and now we have three sections. You may want to set yours up in a totally different way, it depends on how you like to structure your planning. I like to have three different lists. I'm going to put on a new layer with my gel pen, and I'm going to use the grid as a line to keep this straight. I'm going to have one section for things I must do today. These are things I absolutely have to get done. Then a could list here, and then a want list, things I want to do but I may or may not have time to do them today. I do like to put everything on a separate layer, so once I'm done writing that text, I move to a new layer. Let's make our checkboxes squares on this one. We can do squares, we can do circles, you could do anything, it's totally up to you here. You could do a drawing of a strawberry and make that your lines. It's totally up to you. You can see that looks a little bit wiggly, so I think I'm going to grab my monoline pen, which has the streamline at a higher level, and let's bump up the streamline even a little bit more and make this bigger, and make a nice little box. I think I'm going to make that a little bit smaller. Let's zoom in here. I'm grabbing this corner and I'm just pushing in to make this a little bit smaller. That looks good, so let's duplicate that. I think I'm going to have three things on this side, and we could add another set of three over here depending on how you like to write out your tasks for the day. I'm going to make sure these are really nicely spaced. That looks good. Then I'm going to merge all three of these together, so I'm just going to pinch this and bring them all together, so that I can have everything together on one layer. That way when I copy it to my other boxes, it'll be really easy. I'm putting my fingers down to keep that line really straight, and you don't have to put these lines, you can just write your text freely. It doesn't have to be writing on lines like you would in a normal planner, but I like to do that. I think it helps me stay a little bit more organized. I think that looks good, although I wished my boxes where a little bit lower. So I'm going to grab the Selection tool, and I'm going to choose freehand as the selection style, and just go around these boxes, click the Move tool, and then somewhere else on the canvas. If you click here, it'll change the proportions of the actual boxes, but if you click over here somewhere else on the canvas, you can really move those. I like that a little bit better, and then we can move that whole thing, so it's really nice and centered in our box. I'm a little bit obsessive with us. You certainly don't have to go to this much trouble to get everything perfectly aligned, and sometimes it's nice when it's a little bit off, it looks a little more hand-drawn. So I'm just duplicating these layers and moving these into place. You could be even more exact if you wanted to measure these out, but I'm just going to eyeball it here. Now, I can remove my grid paper, I don't really need that anymore. 4. Adding Color: At this point, I can go through and start making my list or I could do a little bit of coloring. I like to add a little color to my list, I think it makes it look a little more fun to use. So I'm also going to grab my watercolor paper so that my watercolor coloring that I'm going to do looks really nice. So I'll go to my master document, grab that watercolor paper and I'm just going to select the whole thing. Select the whole thing, click the dot and then three fingers down, copy. Go back to our gallery, three fingers down and paste. So it automatically put it on the very top of my layers. So I'm just going to move it down the list here and I'm going to reduce the opacity a little bit. I like to do this on all of my journal pages. I think that the paper look is a little bit easier to look at than a pure white paper so it doesn't hurt your eyes as much and it also just gives a nice paper look. So I'm going to make a new layer, and then I'll choose a color here. Let's choose a nice teal blue and then I'm going to go to the imported brushes from the Dropbox folder and I'm going to grab the blunt edge rough watercolor brush and I'm just going to do a little bit of painting and this is where you can really just play around. I like to go outside the lines a little bit and let it be messy. We could paint our boxes just to add a little bit of color to those. So that's a really simple layout. I like to grab the cloud eraser brush, which is also in the free download, and just come through and erase a little bit of the watercolor. It gives it more of a watercolor look if you at least fade it a little bit, but you certainly don't have to do this step. It's just something I like to do to add a little bit of realism to it. You can also duplicate that watercolor layer if you want your water killer to be a little bit more intense and then you can merge those two watercolor layers together. I'm going to go to hue saturation brightness and we can play around with the color. So if you don't like the original color you chose, you can always adjust that. Let's zoom out here and take a look. So this is a great template. You could use this for any day of the week, especially because Mondays on a separate layer. So this could be your template and then you could have every day of the week, you could just duplicate this document and maybe have it in a few different colors, maybe you have a teal version for Monday, maybe you have a pink version for Tuesday. So you can really customize this to be exactly as you want it to be. So once you have this in your procreate, all you would need to do when you are ready to make your list is create a new layer. Grab whatever pen you like, you can use a colored pen or you can use a black pen and this is when it's really important to adjust the streamline. So you want this to feel like a new pen, a real pen, you want this to feel like the kind of pen that you like to write with. So I would recommend just playing around with all the pen options in terms of the size, the color, and the streamline. So some things you might have to do, work, email mom, maybe exercise. So this is a really great way to stay organized and clear your thoughts in the morning and set your intentions for the day. So let's go ahead and move on to a slightly more complex project. 5. Adding Illustrations: Let's look at another way to create one of these lists that's a little bit more about the decorative aspect and the creative aspect. I'm going to create a new document and I'll use the same size, 8.5 by 11 inches. For this one I want to do a drawing and I know I'm going to paint some water colors. I'll go ahead on my master doc and grab my paper layer. I've got my paper layer selected. I'm just circling it, three fingers down, copy. Back to my gallery, and open up that new document, three fingers down and paste, and then we can use the little expand button to make it fit the canvas. Then we can go a little bit bigger if it doesn't quite fit. Let's reduce the opacity to about 50 percent for now, but we can always change that. On a new layer I'm going to grab my gel pen. Let me increase the size of that a little bit. I'm just going to do some leaf decoration on the side. This is going to be for a nice page that's for journaling or making some creative list or keeping some notes on your sketches. I'm just going to start with a nice waving line here. Then I'll just come through with some leaves, I'm going to erase just a little bit of the tips of these so I can fit my leaves in. Now, I'll go ahead and speed up my video here while I draw these. That's my ink layer, I'm going to come through with some watercolor and decorate these a little bit. I'm going to start with a yellow. I'll just go through with the blunt edge rough brash and I'm going to really loosely paint over these. One note about the watercolors here, I'm going to move them below my ink layer so they don't look like they're covering the ink. I'll also set to multiply. That helps the paper and the watercolor blend together a little better. I think I'm also going to get a slightly smaller brush so that I can fit this in the leaves a little better. I'm on that new layer, which is set to multiply. I've got my blunt edge rough brash. Let's go a little bit smaller. That's good. I'll just go around each of these and this is up to you. You can try to stay in the lines or you can let it be like real watercolor, which always tends to go outside the lines. Here I'm just going to cover this one style. But if you like the idea of this process, I have a lot of classes on watercolors on your iPad. I have a lot more brushes and techniques to share in those. If you like this, you may want to check those out to. I'll go ahead and speed up my video as I just go through and paint all of these leaves in the same way. Now that I have this yellow layer down, I'm going to duplicate this layer and I want to bring in some multi-color effects. I'll make the first layer invisible. With that second layer selected, I'll click "Hue, saturation brightness." I think I want to use a blue. Let's use that green, blue. Now we have two different colors. When they're combined together they make a green. But if I erase some blue, I can reveal yellow. If I erase some yellow, I reveal blue. This makes a nice watercolor effect. A multicolored watercolors. The key here is to try to not do it the same on every leaf, rather than just erasing all the tips, I'm trying to just come in randomly, some leaves I'll erase the whole leaf and then others I'll just do the bases and others I'll just do the tips. If you keep it nice and random, it'll look more like a real watercolor. Then I'm going to go to my yellow layer and erase some of that to reveal the blue. You can see I'm playing around with the size of my brush as I do this, so that I can get different effects. The bigger brush has more of a faded overall look, whereas the smaller brush you can get a more concentrated look. That's nice. I'm going to merge these layers together. I'm going to grab my cloud brash. Then I'm going to come through and create some more variation on this. That way I have that watercolor bleed effect. That looks good. If I wanted to be darker, I could duplicate the layer, but that's totally up to you. If you're not sure about that color, you could duplicate the layer and hide it, and then play around with this new layer with some different color options. We could do a two toned pink or two toned green. I like this aqua blue more than the green. I'm going to stick with this aqua blue, but then I always have that green as an option, if I want to go back to that. Now that I have this template, I could really do anything with this. One thing that I like to use this for, if you go back to the master doc and find, let's see the tada list. Tada list is from the happier podcast that's where I heard about this. You make a list at the end of the day of things that you did well or things that you completed. You're not just making a todo list in the morning, you're making a tada list at night and that makes you see what you've done and keep in mind that little changes, little improvements can make a big difference. I really like this practice. I'm going to copy that text and bring it into my new document. Swipe down three times and click "Paste." I think I was probably selecting the wrong layer. Let's go back. The problem here is if you look at my layers panel, I was selecting my months and days list rather than selecting my tada list. You'll run into little issues like this but it's no big deal just go back and redo it. I'm going to delete that mistake layer and paste my tada list. Now, we could bring in some underlining. We could bring in some boxes. Whatever you want to do here. Since you get the idea, I'll just do this as a simple lined document. One thing I like to do is use the elements that are already in the botanical painting as the bullets. If I select my gel pen again and get black, I'm going to just make a little leaf and that's going to be my bullet rather than a circle or a rectangle. Four things for me, that's really enough. At the end of the day, I'm tired. I don't want to make a huge list. But writing down four things that I did well can I think really improve the quality of how I felt about that day. On a new layer, I'm going to make these lines and I'm using my two fingers to snap that line, duplicating that layer and then just moving it down here. Let's duplicate it again and I am just eyeballing this if you wanted it to be a little bit more accurate. You could go in and grab your grid paper, now that you know how to do that, but it's not really necessary if you're okay with it being a loose piece then that's good enough. This is a great template. You could just have this in procreate to use whenever you'd like. We can make adjustments on this text or whatever you want to do. I like to come into this at the end of the day and say, I filmed a video, maybe I started editing and looking back at those can I think help you see how your creative process flows and how these tiny little adjustments and schedules and practices that you make can build up to make a big difference in the end. The last thing that I want to show you for this section here is one other type of list. I'm going to go ahead and make all this stuff invisible. I'm going to leave my botanical prints and let's grab the graph paper from our master doc. I'm going to make that transparent, and then I'm going to come through here and just make some lines for writing. This is a practice that I picked up from the book, The Artist's Way. I'm making a new layer here and I've got black selected. For anyone who hasn't read that book, it's a great book about things you can do to improve your creative process or think more creatively, worked through creative blocks, things like that. One of the things that she recommends in this book is writing every morning. She recommends three pages. I can sometimes do that, but I don't always have time for three pages. This is something I like to do. It's just a really short writing. Really now that I have all these lines made I can just duplicate that. Now, I have one page of really simple space that I can use to just record my thoughts. What are you working on today? What's working with your recent drawing? Or what isn't working? Maybe what illustrations do you want to start working on? Things like that. Now that we have those lines created, we can go ahead and remove our graph paper and use this as a template to do a little bit of writing in the morning. This is something that's a great practice that I really like doing in the morning. You may find it helps get your creative juices flowing and can totally change your process. I really recommend giving this a try 6. Saving and Sharing: The last thing I want to show you is how to share these documents and how to combine these into a book or a digital journal if you want to keep track of them in that way. Here's another example of something you can do with this process. I like to make some notes about my illustrations. I did this pineapple illustration with watercolors and if you want to see how I did that, I have another class on watercolor illustration that you can see exactly how I made this piece. What I'll do is I'll make a sketch and then try to decide, are there some changes I want to make to it. What is it I like about this sketch, what do I not like. You can even do this with another artist's work. If you see some work that you really like and you're trying to figure out, why doesn't my work look like that or how could I make my work more in that style. Bring it into your notebook and analyze it a little bit. I like that this is a multicolor watercolor. I wrote multicolor. I like that the water colors overlapping, the black, so I like that. I like that the pineapple has some yellow and some brown in it, so I put yellow brown and I like to loose lines. I did another sketch like this that was more tight and I didn't really like that. I just make a few notes here and I use one of those arrows as a little decoration. Then sometimes it's nice to just put a little separation in between your sketching and notes and the actual title. That's something I'd like to do, but it's totally up to you. Let's say you're ready to share this document. You want to put it online or you want to compile it into a digital journal, put it on your website, something like that. You'll click the tool symbol and click share. Now, there's a ton of options here. The main ones will be PSD, so if you want to bring this into photoshop and play around and you want to preserve the layers, you can save it as a PSD file. PDF is great if you're going to bring it onto your computer and use Adobe Acrobat to make some PDFs. JPEG is also fine for that. I'm going to use JPEG for this option. I'm going to go ahead and export this as a JPEG and I'm just going to click ""Save image." I'm just going to save it to my iPad here. You'll also see the option to do air dropping. I have my iPhone and my MacBook and my husband's computer, so if I want to go ahead and just drop it onto one of those, you can use Airdrop as long as you've enabled Airdrop on your devices. I want to combine this into a book and maybe you want to sell it, or maybe you just want to share it or save it online or save it on your computer even. I'm using the app called pages. This is a free app and you can download it from the app store. It's really easy to use. It's a Apple product. Over here on the top right, you click the plus symbol and they have a lot of options. I'm going to scroll down here to books. There's different options here for books. I'm just going to choose a blank book. There's vertical books and there's landscape books. I like to change the view up here to two pages so I can see two pages at once. Then page thumbnails so I can see what's going on over on the left side here. If you just click, it, recognized my Apple Pencil. It's telling me that I can draw in here. If you just click, you can add some drawing to this actual document. But what I want to do is add my image. I'm going to click the plus symbol on the top here and then I'll click photos and you can see it's saved here in my photos. I can bring it on here and make it to the perfect size. You can see it moves all that other stuff down so we can delete all that other stuff later so that all we have is your sketch pages. Let's say you have a ten-page book that you made. You can compile all of these in pages. Then once you're ready, you can share it so you can save it. You can e-mail it to yourself, Airdrop it, and it'll be a file that you can upload to your website or e-mail, anything like that. I hope you enjoyed this class and that you feel inspired building your own journal. If you liked this class, you may like some of my other classes where I cover illustration and painting methods on the iPad. If you have any questions about the methods that we use in this class or any trouble with any of the steps, please don't hesitate to send me a message. You can contact me on Skill Share, Instagram, Facebook, any of those work. I would also love to see your journal pages and I'm sure we could all be inspired by seeing each other's layouts. Please share which you make. You can share it here on Skill Share or share it on social and tag me. Thank you so much for watching this class. I hope I see you again next time. Bye bye.
