Geometric goal journal for July

Get focused for the coming four weeks by writing some some aims for the month and designing a cool geometric goal journal for July.

We can’t get enough of journaling at uni-ball. And, as the school holidays are coming up, we thought setting some goals for the month is a brilliant way to get focused for the four weeks ahead.

Our geometric goal journal is easy to do, so why not try it yourself? It uses basic shapes simply drawn to create interest so anyone can have a go!

What makes our goal journal so special is the use of vibrant EYE Designer pen colours.

The EYE pen’s ‘uni-flow’ system delivers a reliable and continuous flow of ink from start to finish with solid, consistent colour coverage. EYE Designer has a robust 0.7mm nib, so you’ll get a strong, flowing line when writing and drawing. And it’s available in black, blue, green, light blue, light green, orange, pink, red, violet and wine so it’s ideal for colourful journaling!

GOAL JOURNAL: WHAT YOU NEED

EYE DESIGNER pens great for journaling

For our goal journal we grabbed a trusty Oxford Black ‘n’ Red notebook and a Uni-ball EYE Designer Eight pack to ensure we had all the EYE colours at our disposal for colourful journaling. We also got a pencil to sketch out our script.

1: Draw your red triangles

Starting your geometric goal journal couldn’t be simpler. Pick up your red EYE Designer pen and draw simple triangles around the page. Draw two extra shapes inside of the larger one and colour in the outside.

2: Add your light blue diamonds

Contrast always looks so cool when creating a design. So we used the light blue EYE Designer against the deep vivid red to pop on the paper. So, make a basic diamond shapes, draw a cross in the middle, then intersecting lines over that. Colour in the shapes inside as shown.

3: Make dashes and zigzags

Now we want to anchor our diamond and triangles. Use your violet EYE Designer pen to make dashes and zigzags to give our journal page opener some structure and shape.

4: Embellish your design
