Trying To Better My Lettering Abilities








When I began to look for new Fall decorations last month, I came across a chalkboard-esque sign with gorgeous lettering. I wanted to buy it, but I wasn't in the mood to splash out the money for it, so I thought I'd see if I could replicate it somewhat for myself (although I can't copy even a mass-produced sign with a clean conscience, so I won't). I remembered that I am horrible at lettering. My handwriting is awful, and I was never very good at block letters in school, and I'm definitely not on a Pinterest quote level. I've decided to rectify that. These are some of my first attempts.

  7. Amber, these are gorgeous! I've always wanted a hand lettered header for my blog, but can never make mine look like this. I really dig the lettering in the fourth picture, with the outlined dropshadow.

    1. Thank you Alyse! I'll admit that the header idea is another reason I want to better my skills. My current header isn't creative at all.

  8. These are great! With time you'll get better dear. At least you're doing something about your letter writing. I had to go out and buy some practice books myself.


    Whenever you can, I will love you to visit my blog www.lilyofNigeria.blogspot.com and tell me what you think of it.
