Writing quotes with Brush Lettering

I can sit for a long time watching brush lettering or any lettering videos on youtube to be honest. I love to create and be creative, I try and practise my lettering and designs when I can. I love how beautiful brush lettering and calligraphy looks. I will learn to make them look amazing and be able to do it with ease. I am still learning but I thought I would share my progress so far. I thought I would show you by writing some lovely quotes.

I used the Tombow N15 pen and a pink brush pen and the coloured pens are the Staedtler colouring pen to bring colour to the quotes.

I still have a way to go but I enjoy being creative when I have the time. I like to have quotes or sayings posted throughout my notebooks or my bullet journal. It breaks up the pages, adds colour and gives me a little motivation. Do you like calligraphy or brush lettering? What is your one of your favourite quotes? I’d to hear in the comments.

I didn’t think to look at YouTube, what a good idea, I’ll have to try and do that because I’ve been gifted a set that I really want to use! Thank you for sharing your gorgeous artwork ๐Ÿ™‚ x
