Material

You just need some basic drawing skills and materials for this tutorial.

Adding the Black Drawing Paper to the Page

First, you have to roughly measure the area of your page where you will be going to glue the black drawing paper. Get the measurement of its length and width. 

After measuring your page, it's time to measure your black drawing paper. You need a black paper that is smaller than your bullet journal page, so adjust your measurement for it.

Cut off the black sheet and glue it into your page. Glue it a little bit inclined.

Writing the Heading

Now, write your Mood Ghost heading using your pencil.

Drawing the Mood Ghosts

Use your pencil to draw your Mood Ghosts. Basically, they are just half ovals with wiggly lines at the bottom.

Don't forget to count your ghost. Draw 31 ghosts for October.

Colouring the Mood Ghosts

After you have completed drawing your 31 ghosts, it's time to colour them with your white acrylic paint. Wait for your first layer to dry before you add your second layer.

Outlining the Mood Ghosts

Make your Mood Ghosts more defined. Outline them with your black stabilo pen. Just go all over them once again.

Adding Some Stars to the Background

This is so easy. Use your white sharpie and drop some dots to your black background.

Numbering your Mood Ghosts

Number your Mood Ghosts from 1-31 using your fine liner.

Adding the Legend

Write the legend to the left page. I use 8 moods or feelings but you can add more or less to your page.

Tracking your Mood

Now that you have your Mood Ghosts and your legend, you can now start tacking your mood for each day!
