Master brush-lettering basics to create handmade cards for any occasion.
Krislam begins by going over the materials you'll need to get started. Then practice using your brush pens as you dive into some drills and create simple block letters, focusing on how to vary the pressure to achieve different stroke widths.
After you have the basic strokes down, follow along as Krislam walks you through each of the script letters you'll be using most throughout class.
Next, practice connecting letters to build words as you learn about letter anatomy, before exploring two lettering styles: non-bouncy and bouncy.
Apply what you've learned to create a simple but eye-catching birthday card. Find out why layout is so important for cardmaking. Afterwards, see how to sketch out your letters, ink them in and personalize your work by adding flourishes.
Continue exploring cards, but get a little more creative with colors, fonts, shadows and highlights as you learn to make thank-you and "get well soon" cards. Krislam teaches you how to combine different fonts and colors to create a contrasting, yet balanced card.
Finally, learn how to letter your own envelopes and create personalized tags for cards, gifts and more. Krislam also shares some inspiring ideas for infusing lettering into your everyday life.
