Nearing the Halfway Point
June… what a wonderful month! There are lots of reasons why I enjoy the month of June. First and foremost, June is my birth month! This year I’ll be turning 25 – in just a few days, actually. June 6th is my birthday! June is also the sixth month of the year, meaning that we’re nearly halfway through 2018. That makes June a perfect time to reevaluate your new year’s resolutions, reaffirm your year’s mantra, and perhaps even create a fresh Level 10 Life.
But for now, let me show you my June monthly setup in my watercolor planner! This month’s final product is a bit different than what I normally do, but it was so fun to create and it looks stellar. Keep scrolling to see the setup and check out the materials I used!

Layers and Layers
The process of creating my June monthly setup was incredibly interesting from beginning to end! I got the sudden desire to paint canyons. Well, that’s not totally true. I’ve wanted to paint canyons for a long time, but landscapes intimidate the hell out of me. Since they’ve always been so scary, I’ve never really tried!
So the idea didn’t come out of nowhere, but the courage to make an attempt did hit me out of the blue. I leaned into it and gave it a shot, and boy oh boy was that the right call. These canyons turned out stunning! I’m especially in love with the color range and vibrancy.
For the cover page, I wanted to paint the canyons as if you were right in the middle, looking down the path until it fell out of view. I drew inspiration from slot canyons, though I’ve never visited any myself. The calendar page, though, is a different perspective. I tried to capture the view as if you were standing in the canyons and looking up. I’m not sure if it quite comes across the way I intended, but it looks heckin’ cool anyway.
My June monthly setup is largely the same as it’s been for ages. There are no big changes to my calendar, memories section, or habit tracker. Though I have been considering expanding my habit tracker to fit in more habits, that will have to wait for another month.
Check in with Yourself
Whether you are enjoying the early summer of June or the beginnings of winter, take this time to check in with yourself and your life. Ask whether you like the direction these last six months have taken, and see if there’s anything you want to change. June is a great time to ground yourself and reignite your goals, so don’t let this opportunity pass by! Even a quick List of 100 will help you center yourself.
I hope June is kind to you and you enjoy these gorgeous days before they’re gone. Have a happy June!
