Bullet Journal Ideas - How to Use Old Books and Newspapers For Bullet Journaling
It’s a good idea to keep all your old books and newspapers because you can use them to give an appealing vintage feel to your journal. The paper will turn yellow over time. You can use the yellowed pages as background, or you can even take photos of them to paste into your journal.
Here are 2 ideas for using old books and newspapers in your BuJo:
1. Making Vintage Background
The background of the bullet journal is usually white, and old book pages have a slightly yellow hue, so the contrast between the two shades can be used to create a pleasing vintage feel. You can also hand-tear the old paper, to give your journal a natural, homey feel.
2. Creating Charred effects
You can also create a vintage look by smudging ink onto the pages of your journal. Burning the edges of some paper to create a charred effect is another way to produce a historical feel.
