Fancy-Pants Handwriting

A few weeks ago I became obsessed with the brush-lettering effect of calligraphy for use in my various projects. So, I tried it myself:

One of the things I’m most excited to be using this technique for is writing out my favorite quotes. Here, I practiced some that were on my mind (left). Then, I designed my very first quote page (top right), though actually I ended up liking the practice version more. Finally, I lettered some envelopes for cards I gave out this week, and was quite pleased by the results (bottom right).

I want to play more with using watercolor paints and actual brushes to letter, but it’s more of a challenge–I’ll have to practice a lot.

Hope you enjoyed this post, and happy crafting!
