A Thrill of Hope Holiday Printables ✨
Hello! Thanks for your interest in my "A thrill of hope, the weary world rejoices" holiday lettering printables! ✍🏼🎄✨
You can download both the worksheets and the final design below.
Below are the free downloads of this quote. You're getting practice worksheets AND a final finished design!
Version 1: Practice with me!
This is a 2 page PDF where I show you in SUPER detail exactly how I lettered this phrase. In the video I showed you both faux calligraphy, where you manually thicken your downstrokes, and brush calligraphy, where you press harder on your downstrokes and lightly on your upstrokes to make thicker and thinner parts of each letter. You can use these worksheets either way!
Version 2: Display Ready!
This is a full black version that you can print out to display in your home and use as a holiday decoration. I'd love to see how you all use these so please feel free to tag me in any photos you post @handlettereddesign on Instagram!
Please remember that these printables are for personal use only. These are my gift to you for being a part of this amazing lettering community! ❤️
You can also go back and watch the recorded live video on my Instagram page!
In the video I show you my whole process - we talk about layout and filling in white space andflourishing. (I referred to a few of our workbooks this week, scroll down to see all the books and products that I mentioned!)
Here's the recording of the live video for you to watch:
Next week is our LAST one of these so I hope you will be able to join me next Thursday December 23rd for our final LIVE holiday lettering! I'll send you an email with a reminder and the start time next week.
I hope you are enjoying all these free downloads and the videos! I love giving you this look behind the scenes and hopefully inspiring you to do some of your own holiday creating.
I used quite a few of our hand lettering products and workbooks in this week's video. Here's a wrap up of them all!
We call this "The Beginner Bundle" because it's the first thing I recommend to lettering beginners so often! This is the book that teaches you each letter and then how to connect them together like I showed in the video. See the bundle here.
I used The Guide to Flourishing a bunch in yesterday's live, and honestly I use it all the time when I am looking for flourishing ideas! (Yes I use my own books, haha!) See inside it here.
The Guide to Mindful Lettering is my favorite book for someone getting started with brush pens (or someone who is frustrated with brush pens, I've been there!) Learn more about it here.
Lettering Tracing Paper Pad: Once again I was raving about this paper this week! Honestly it is the best, it's so smooth and nice enough that you could frame it. Learn why I love it here.
Committed to Create Top Spiral Notebook: this is the notebook I used for my pencil sketch in the live! One side of the paper has a subtle dot grid that helps SO much with getting straight lines and an even layout. Get it here.
I talked about using a light board for tracing, and this is a great one! I included it in this year's Lettering Lover Gift Guide, click here to see.
For anyone wondering about the brush pen I used, it's this one from Faber-Castell! It is one of my absolute favorites. Find it in our Pen Pouch Starter Kit here.
