1. Your pen.
Well, it is really important to have a good pen, sometimes we don't pay too much attention to our tools, but after some time I realized that in some cases it is not ... that if you are not talented, it is more that your working tools are not the appropriated, it all depends on the way you start identifying which are your favorite "weapons" (: Mine, is a 7.0 Fine point, it is pretty good if you like long and thin lines, but it also works perfectly for other types of lettering.
2. Different lettering.
This is another cool fact about this, I have to say I love those photographies that have handwritten quotes on them, but the key for making them special is using different types of lettering, there are SO many inspiring sites about calligraphy, some of my favorites are The notebook doodles and Leah Flores. Just experiment and think of new stuff! (:
3. Decorations (doodles)
So, if you have a great quote.. with an awesome handwriting the cherry on top is normally a doodle, I just love them, they make everything cheerful and fun. A great idea is to complement doodles with your new calligraphy, some speech bubbles... envelopes (: It will make everything look even better!
It seems it is all for now:) Have a great day! xoxo Monica.
PS. I will post again the wall photos, I just want to make them bigger so that you can appreciate them in a better way.
