10 Tips to Artful Lettering

I love the art of Julie Fei-Fan Balzer. She combines colors, textures, images and lettering an bold, imaginative way. Her blog is a great stop for creative ideas! Not only does she share her own tips, but she also has guest artists as well.
Recently she had Joanne Sharpe of Whimspirations, who shared ten tips for bettering lettering. Whoa. GREAT stuff here. If you’re into journaling, scrapbooking, cardmaking, sign art – anything like that, check out these tips. I’ve never been more inspired to practice drawing my letters!

From Joanne:

“I’ve had a love affair with lettering since I was in Catholic grade school where the sweet nuns made sure we had perfect penmanship every single day.  As an art form, I began collecting quotes and journaling with creative lettering in my teens.  Over the years my “font” has evolved and as my signature style is easily recognized.  It’s nothing magical, it’s comfortable, my interpretation of the alphabet and creatively writing consistently in my own style.”
