Can I just start by saying how excited I am for this post!? The wonderful Olivia from randomolive.com got in touch with me about sharing her brush lettering and oh, wow. I’ve always lusted after the gorgeous brush script that seems to adorn so many people’s bullet journals, and now I can learn to do my own!? Count me in.
Above is the traceable practice guide Olivia made for me (and you!). Basically, you print out the worksheet, then trace over the letters yourself which is much harder than it looks! This is my third attempt… and I won’t be showing you the first two. I used the MozArt Brush Pens Set which I recently bought from Amazon, but I know Olivia uses watercolours with different pens.
I haven’t been brave enough to try this out in my bullet journal yet, but you can bet that I absolutely will once I get better. Olivia was kind enough to gift me a copy of her Comprehensive Brush Letter Practice Guide which you can also purchase to hone your skills. I’m definitely going to be printing this to sit down with over the weekend. If you want to download your own copy of the “I’d rather be blogging” worksheet, you can sign up below.
I am honestly so excited about this collaboration. I’d become a bit stagnant with my bullet journal since getting a job as I don’t need to plan my days so much anymore, but this is just the excuse I needed to get back into it. Expect many more brush lettering posts as I get better at freehand – I cannot wait!
Have you tried brush lettering before? If you download the worksheet I’d love to see how you get on – send me pictures!
