Press Play! Several of you have been asking for videos so I gave it a shot the other day (and not one of my kids busted in the room. Winning.) 🙂
While I’m practicing traditional calligraphy, it’s not easy (especially for this lefty). In the meantime, I do a lot of cheater calligraphy. And it’s so easy.
Here’s the short video and then the instructions are below.
Cheater Calligraphy Steps:
1⃣ Sketch your phrase in pencil.
2⃣ Trace over it in marker.
3⃣ Thicken any downstrokes.
4⃣ Let your work dry and then erase out any pencil lines.
So easy, right? 🙂 Be sure to join me on Instagram for monthly 30 Day Lettering + Doodle Challenges, lettering tips, and more videos!
The best way to get better really is just to practice, practice, practice and then practice a bit more!
