Brush Lettering Practice Sheet

As with any skill the more you practice it, the better you will be at doing it. Brush lettering is no exception! It’s hard because in the beginning watching all the videos and tutorials you think to yourself “this looks easy, I got this”! Then you try it and wonder ok I missed something because it doesn’t look anything like what theirs did! Well let me tell you it does and will get better if you just keep practicing. I would try here and there and then quit because well it just didn’t look that good.

However, I am a creative person so the brush lettering just kept calling my name! So I kept going back and trying. So here I am 2 years later a whole lot better than my first attempt at lettering. It probably wouldn’t have taken me two years to get good at if I stuck with it from the start. Now I still consider myself a newbie and I still practice daily. If you are looking for some free practice sheets I created this brush strokes practice sheet and then this uppercase alphabet brush letter practice sheet just click on the link and you can print them as many times as you like! Now get practicing, you got this!

How to Start an Art Journal

I have always loved just doodling, coloring and painting with no direction in mind just to see where it ends up. That's kind of the theory behind an art journal. There aren't any rules, you can do as you choose and choose the supplies you want to use.

For me, I am more of a doodler and I like to keep the art journal thing as easy as possible. I use minimal supplies to achieve my art journal pages. Below I have listed the supplies you will need and that I use.

Supplies List

Scribbles That Matter Dot Journal or journal of choice
Tombow Brush Pens
Sakura Pigma Micron Pen
Tim Holts Stamp Holder or something hard plastic
Spray Bottle filled with water
Napkins
Blow Dryer

First open your book and have the page you want to add color to ready.

Next take the plastic stamp holder and color on the smooth side with the Tombow Brush Pens colors of your choice. You can use 1 color or more depending on your preference. I used 3 for this demonstration.

Next take your spray bottle and spray it directly onto the colors that you put on the plastic stamp holder. This will liquify the colors and turn them into watercolors.

Make sure you have your napkins and blow dryer ready to go you will need them! Take the stamp holder with the wet colors on it and press it onto the page. You can do this one or repeat the above steps to add more colors to the page. When you pull the stamp holder up, dab any access water with a napkin and then blow dry to keep the water from seeping through the page.

I wanted more color on my page so I repeated the process to add some more color to the bottom left corner.

There you have it! A watercolor background page for you art journal. Now you can add more color if you like, or add anything else you like to the page. I like to doodle so I just draw cute little illustrations using the Tombow Brush Pens and then I outline those illustrations to make them standout using the Micron Pigma Pen.

A finished spread in my art journal. Sometimes I go back an add more illustrations or writing. You can really add anything you like there are no rules! Wasn't that so much fun!

All opinions in this blog post are 100% my own!

There are a variety of different lettering books out there for beginner to advanced letterer's. With so many to choose from I thought I would share my most used and favorite lettering book/guides.

These 5 books helped me so much in learning to letter and finding my own style. I hope they will help you like they did me in your lettering adventure.

Watercolor Fruits Tutorial

DSC_0010.jpg

Today I’m going to show you a watercolor fruit tutorial using Tombow brush pens! Get excited this is so much fun!

MATERIALS REQUIRED:

20180629_124907.jpg

THE STRAWBERRY

When you draw the strawberry you only need to focus on the edges of the fruit. We will use the watercolor brush pens to do the rest of the work for us so you don't need a whole lot of color. 

I used the following Tombow brush pen colors  847 and 245.

Once you get your fruit drawn then you can use your watercolor brush pen to start painting pulling the color from the lines that you have drawn. Tip: do not apply to much water or your colors will mix and start to run everywhere.

Allow your watercolor to dry for a bit. Once it is completely dry then you can take your Pigma Micron pen and add in the little seeds.

There you have it! Fun, cute little watercolor fruits using Tombow Brush Pens! Don't you just want to go make a whole bunch of different watercolor fruits now because it was so easy and fun. I made some watermelon slices to!
