I am going to share with you pages from my personal planner from February 2016 so you can see how I have used my Stamper's Big Brush pens
- to experiment with hand-lettering
- to write stand-out information
- to add pops of colors
- to color little doodles and illustrations
- to add over-all interest to my planner.
So, let's get started.
Hand-lettering is a fun trend in crafts. For everyday lettering, there's really no right or wrong way. It's your handwriting. No matter which spot you find yourself in the handwriting satisfaction spectrum, you can improve. I use my planner sort of as a sketchbook to experiment with lettering. I do try to keep the style consistent and look cohesive. It helps get a tiny daily dose of practice.
I doodle. For example, in the above spread, I doodled and colored the FedEX and UPS icons. And then a vintage rotary phone on the right side.
On the above spread, there are more doodles. I have written my entry in block letters and then filled in colors.
Here's a mix of block lettering, cursive, all caps, all lowercase, and a combination of both.
The Stamper's Big Brush pens don't bleed through most planner pages. As you can see, I have worked with them on back-to-back pages with no trouble at all. You can also use the Stamper's Big Brush pens for detail stamping on your pages if you want to stamp little icons and such if you are not a doodler.
On a final note, I want to tell you to not be afraid of writing. Don't be held back by rules. Your handwriting is your unique gift. With the right writing tools, you can make immense progress if you try.
