During one of the most challenging times of my life, I found lettering and it saved me.
It gave me an escape, a creative outlet and a reason to look for positivity. I clung to the inspiration that I would write and re-write as I practiced and it brought so much joy to my life!
I want you to experience this too, which is how the Creative Lettering Journal was born…

And there is video content included with the course purchase!
There are 14 beautiful coloring pages that you can color in using colored pencils, watercolors, crayons, gelly roll markers, you name it!
The backs of the coloring pages are blank so you can pull them out to frame if you’d like to – each one has faint dotted lines around 3 sides to make it easy to cut it down to 8×10 size and frame. If you’re not going to remove it, that blank backside is a great place for more journaling or lettering practice.
The 14 reflective journaling pages include my insights about the quotes shared as well as a prompt for you to journal your own thoughts and feelings. I find that when I’m being creative, I have some of my best thoughts and it’s wonderful to record them right there.
Thank you cards, Wreath outlines for framing your own creations, just a few of the added pages for making your own creations!
Follow along in your book as I walk you through the full alphabet! This course will give you a view into how I create each letter. You'll receive a course invite after your book purchase, and you can watch the material as much as you want.
For Faux Calligraphy you can use any type of pen or pencil or even a brush pen. You can use any marker, it just needs to have a tip that can do narrow lines as well as broad lines.
If you've followed my Instagram feed you've seen me use several different brand markers and pens in the past. Of the different pens I've used, my go to has to be the Faber-Castell Pitt pen. I like these so much, the colors are fun (there are so many to pick from), and these can be used for both faux calligraphy and in for brush pen calligraphy when you're ready.
I have used so many different brands of tracing paper, some cheap stuff and even really expensive vellum...and I'd take this paper over ANY of them.
I searched and searched for the perfect paper for lettering and finally found what I like, so I've created my own pad with what I believe is the best out there. Put it side-by-side with any other brand, this stuff lays flatter and is easier to trace on. I just love it!
Very nice! Well done! Arrived quickly, and I checked the items , wishing I’d bought two of everything. Perhaps next payday. Thx
This book is showing me all the strokes I need to learn.
Lots of fun and helped a lot with my lettering
