One of the best things I did when I first started lettering was joining in on a few lettering challenges. They were a great way to practice when I couldn’t think of any words or phrases to practice. I really struggled in the beginning with picking words and phrases to letter, but lettering challenges took care of this problem!
Lately, I’ve been trying new techniques and ways of lettering. I’ve found that just focusing on a single word, and not a phrase, is a great way to really focus on new techniques. Since it’s been so helpful to me, I thought it would be fun to create a challenge that you could also join in on! Since I am all about creating more joy in your life, I decided to call it #joyfullettering and include only joy filled words.
How it Works
Joining in on the Challenge is simple! Each day there is a corresponding word for you to letter. I’ll be posting my own take on the word either in an Instagram post or story each day. You can join along, too by posting your word with the tag #joyfullettering and @mirabellecreations. Of course, you don’t have to join every day, simply letter the words whichever days you’d like.
I’m going to try out new styles with my words. A few ideas for you to try include:
- faux lettering
- dip pen calligraphy
- pencil lettering
- serif and sans serif lettering
- lettering with objects
- lettering inside of shapes
- iPad lettering
Can’t wait to see what you create! I’ll picking my favorites to share, too, so we can all take inspiration from each other. See you on June 1st!
