This tutorial combines a little bit of watercolor, a smidge of illustration, and a pinch of calligraphy to make a spectacular, retro-esque thank you card. It’s a project that’s suitable for all levels: even if you’re a beginning artist or calligrapher, I encourage you to give it a try!
Brush pens come in many different colors, which gives you the chance to make bold and eye-catching pieces! In today’s post, you’ll learn two different brush pen lettering techniques. The first technique teaches you how to add visual interest to the letters themselves, and the second technique relies on shapes around the letters to help them pop. Choose the one you like best, and try making it when you have some free time … I know you’ll enjoy the process and the result!
When you make up your mind to learn calligraphy, you can do yourself one big favor: Don’t buy a kit from a big box store! Carefully compiling your own kit will ensure that you have high-quality, effective supplies that will make for a great experience from the beginning.
