Hi there book bloggers and avid readers! I just wanted to share this new (to me) style of journaling I’ve been doing called Fauxbonichi. It is based on a planner/journal that is popular in Japan called Hobonichi. They are planners/journals with dates and graph paper for their owners to express their creativity with drawings, paintings, stickers, quotes, etc. Really however and whatever they want to put in their journals.
Being that it is a bit expensive to import these planners folks decided to buy the graph paper journal by MiquelRius which can be found at Barnes and Noble for $9.95 and just make up their own planner/journal pages how they wanted. Hence the name Fauxbonichi. I discovered this trend on youtube and eagerly searched and watched many videos on fauxbonochi journaling. I immediately decided I wanted to try it deciding what I liked as far as set up etc. For now I’m still trying things out and I may decide to change things here and there but I am having so much fun doing this.
One Fauxbonich youtuber I came across was Candice Dillhoff. Her journal pages were absolutely GORGEOUS!!! I fell in love all of her quote bubbles and especially her swirl designs. So much so that I’ve been trying my hand at them. I am nowhere as good at them as Candice but so far I’ve been plenty pleased with the results. Below is a couple sample pages from my Fauxbonichi journal. Hope you like!
