2. Gather Your Supplies
Before you begin, gather all the supplies you'll need for your gardening journal spread. Some essential supplies include stickers, colored pens, watercolor paints, paintbrushes, adhesive, and gardening-themed stickers or cutouts.

3. Plan Your Layout
Take a moment to plan the layout of your gardening journal spread. Consider dividing the page into sections for different aspects of your gardening journey, such as plant care, seedlings, or garden design. Sketch out a rough layout before you start adding any details.

4. Add Color and Illustrations
Now comes the fun part – adding color and illustrations to your gardening journal spread. Use watercolor paints to create vibrant backgrounds or add small illustrations of your favorite plants.

5. Include Plant Information
One of the main purposes of a gardening journal is to keep track of your plants' progress. Include important information such as the plant's name, date of planting, and any observations or milestones. You can create small pockets or envelopes to hold seed packets or plant tags.

6. Reflect and Write
Take a moment to reflect on your gardening experiences and write about them in your journal spread. Share your thoughts, challenges, and successes. This will not only help you remember important details but also serve as a source of inspiration for future gardening endeavors.

7. Personalize and Decorate
Make your gardening journal spread truly unique by personalizing and decorating it. Add pressed flowers, washi tape, stickers, or even photographs of your garden. Let your creativity shine and make it a reflection of your gardening style and personality.

8. Update Regularly
Lastly, remember to update your gardening journal regularly. Make it a habit to document your gardening activities, whether it's planting new seeds, harvesting your crops, or experimenting with new techniques. Your journal will become a valuable resource and a cherished keepsake.
Creating a journal spread about gardening is not only a practical way to keep track of your gardening journey but also a delightful way to express your creativity. So, grab your journal and start documenting your green thumb adventures today!
