Everyone watches movies. Just like our family. We love those comedies where you almost cry laughing while you watch it. I personally don’t like to go into a movie theatre so we usually watch them at home. Do you know how many movies you watch a year? Now it is a perfect time to create a page or even more in your bullet journal to keep track of them.
I have been, or can be if you click on a link and make a purchase, compensated via a cash payment, gift, or something else of value for writing this post. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I or my family use personally and believe will be good for my readers.
The final page
Let me start with showing how it looks like after all the finishing touches. And then I’ll share pictures taken while my wife was busy creating the page.
Pictures taken during the creation of the page
As a first step my wife used her embossing and die cutting machine and some darker grey paper to cut some film rolls. In case you do not yet have one you can pick one here:
There is a first time of using a die cut for everyone. When you use such a thin cut you’ll have the same problem as everyone at first. How to get it out? It is more simple than it looks. There are tiny holes on the other side and you can just push it out. Not sure if it is included in any instruction booklet so I wanted to capture this hint here.
As you can see it looks great. You could also try drawing some similar if you do not have a machine yet. My wife was looking at these type of machines for a while and then it was smiling at us in one of the local stores. It wanted to join our family. We took it home so it can enjoy all the fun daily.
My wife found this director’s chair on Pinterest. Not all can draw so don’t be ashamed if you also not a Picasso. The way to get such nice pictures in your bullet journal is to find an image online. Size it as you like. Place it under the page and draw the outlines over. If you cannot see it properly use a backlight. Here are a few I found online for you:
Lights! Camera! Action!
Let’s get colors. But before we get there let’s draw the outline of the director’s chair. This is where the pigment liners come in.
Finally let’s color the director’s chair and stick in the film rolls. Coloring is done with my wife’s personal favorite coloring pencils from Faber-Castell. Remember what I keep on saying about the colors? The more colors you have the better.
Not sure which took longer the creation of the page or my writing the post about it. At the end it does not matter. I hope you all enjoyed it.
