The last time we spoke I shared how I’ve started a new hobby. Handlettering is going great I can definitely see progress with my writing I’m more cognizant of upstrokes and downstrokes. I’m even trying to add little doodles to my pieces that I share to Instagram designsbysixty5. I’ve noticed that the more I learn and see the amazing pieces being shared by the many profiles , I have to remind myself that I have to take it slowly and practice overtime my muscle memory will kick in and I will ensure that all my letters are uniformed, my strokes are the right width. Frankly,up to this minute I didn’t know how technical handlettering could be or was. I just saw beautiful words/letters mixed with a little art on paper. News flash it’s none of those things. It takes time, I’ve already gotten supplies as per the many recommendations and I’m currently banning myself from making another brush pen or any handlettering material from Amazon.
It’s like I’m back at school again and I want to get all the cool pens and stationery. I’ve even found myself looking at bullet journals. I already have a planner that I love it’s April I mean the year has pretty much started it’s too late to start another journal. It’s something I’d like to try as soon as Ive learned the mechanics of it. My Kit Life planner has prompts and it’s pretty straightforward so it works.
Do you use a bullet journal? What kind of planner do you use? I have over 6 planner in my Amazon Cart I’m not sure which one to choose as yet. The most expensive is $12 I’m not going any higher than that because I’m not sure if I will go full on with this thing. I’m thinking let it wait out the year until I’ve learned as much as I can about Bujo. I will continue to live vicariously through the accounts I follow on IG and watch on Youtube.
Until next time,
