1. Practice = Progress. I am a serious Type A. Sermon Sketch Notes and Bible journaling have challenged every aspect of my perfectionist issues. I also think that allowing myself grace has given me space to experiment and improve in my lettering skills through the years.
2. Supplies help, but you can make anything you have work. You can make beautiful things with pencils, Crayola markers, and Sharpie pens-especially if you are just beginning. I most certainly have my favorites and I have a TON of supplies, so perhaps we will talk about that at some point, but it absolutely is NOT necessary. Just start practicing - where you are, with what you have!
3. Modern Calligraphy/Hand Lettering - whatever you like to call it - can be used for SO many things!
I’m a planner girl...like old school write it down planner girl so I am in LOVE with the Happy Planner by Create 365. I use stickers, yes,
but I letter in my planner a LOT.
You can use it to make crafts, home decor, gifts, things to sell. Use lettering around the house for labeling ALL OF THE THINGS or making party favors.
You can hand letter your packages and cards so they look pretty and fancy. Doesn’t it make you happy when you get a beautiful package or envelope in the mail? Don’t pretend it doesn’t!
If you scrapbook or make cards, lettering skills can really come in handy, as well.
And I used it in Bible journaling and my Sermon Sketch Notes
