Some things to remember while looking at these cactus bullet journal doodles:
- you can make it as simple or as complicated as you want.
- use the simple doodles for pages where the doodles will be small and plentiful such as a mood tracker
- use the more complicated ones on the pages where you will draw a single large cactus doodle such as on the quote page (just think of the adorable quotes you could use!)
- Making the cacti more complicated would be colouring them in, adding highlights with a white paint marker, decorating the plant pot and drawing cute little faces
Remember that this is your bullet journal and the point isn’t to make it perfect. As long as you are using it then you will get better and in a year, you will be so proud of how far you have come.
