    This was so helpful, thank you! Also, thanks for the reminder that I just need to practice. My expectations are so high after watching Youtube videos and I get discouraged when I can't do it as well. But it's encouraging to hear that even great artists like yourself had to start somewhere. I love your channel, thank you!

    Thanks for all your helpful tips! I've totally adopted your tips and tricks and they work very well. I noticed you used some brush markers. Have you ever used Tombow brush markers? I would love to see what you could come up with using them. Take care! Lots of love from BK NY.

    I do lettering by hand when I scrapbook a page. The really annoying part is that every time I use stickers the letters I use the most quickly dissappear and you are left with tons of x s and z s and other random letters. It is to the point now where I refuse to buy alphabet stickers because of this very fact. With handwriting I always have challenges getting all the letters the same size …so thanks for the tips.

    I agree with tip 5! I was so lost looking at those lovely hand lettering work spread online. But I came across tutorials, followed them copies things-and 1 week later I am coming up with my own ideas! <3
