Here are my tips for learning hand lettering for signs, cards, scrapbooks, art journals. Of course you can print out great looking titles on your computer, but there is a certain satisfaction in doing it in your own hand. I like the personal, casual flavor a hand written caption adds to a handmade page.
This is how I taught myself #handlettering for card making, photo albums and art journaling. In this video I show where I found online resources for beginners and how I make my own practice worksheets in PhotoShop. There are so many fantastic lettering teachers who now teach online courses on the craft of hand lettering. I also suggest a few books that I found helpful.
Here are links to my favorite hand lettering resources mentioned in the video:
