A month or so ago I shared how I've been enjoying exploring the world of handlettering. It's been fun exploring ways to create my own handwritten fonts and using them to write a quote, word, or scripture. I especially like it when I'm listening to a sermon and a statement or a scripture jumps out at me. Now instead of trying to find it later in my notes, I can simply turn it into word art right therein my notebook! It's great to thumb back through to see what has caught my attention from different studies or speakers.

I watch several Instagram accounts for ideas, as well as save a lot in my two handlettering boards on Pinterest. I decided I needed to get some better pens, so I splurged on THIS BRUSH TIP SET BY TOMBOW, THIS GELLY ROLL SET FOR WHITE HIGHLIGHTING BY SAKURA and THIS FINE LINE SET OF MICRON PENS FROM SAKURA. They have made a big difference in my hand lettering creations. I highly recommend adding them to your own collection if you do bible journalling or handlettering as well!

Here are some of the handlettering creations I've done over the last few weeks...
It's plain and simple. just testing different letter styles

When I am overcome by worry or complaining---ask this question

This one is my favorite of the batch!

My whimsical selection to try new lettering

You can find these and all the rest of my creations I've done on my INSTGRAM account! :) I think they are fun to make, and give me an easy outlet for my crafty side! I have had requests to turn some of them into notecards to sell--we will see if I venture into that or not!

Have a simply marvelous day!
