Hey there! So glad you stopped by - I have a cool freebie for you today!
As you may already know, I launched Lettering Bootcamp last week, an e-course designed to guide you through the process of exploring different techniques that will lead you to develop and refine your own lettering style. As part of the course, I've included assignments and daily lettering prompts for every day of the week.
Students are encouraged to interpret the lettering prompts either by lettering the word on its own or incorporating it into a sentence.
But, have you ever looked at a blank page and wondered what to do, or how to execute a lettering exercise? Of course, we all have! That is why I have decided to take it a step further and create weekly workbooks containing the lettering prompts for each day of the week, along with further instructions that will hopefully ignite your inspiration and unleash your creativity.
Some pages are lesson-specific, such as the one one above that refers to the section in which I teach how to create a bouncy effect in your lettering. Others are pretty general and a few don't include further instructions, just the word alone so that you may interpret as you wish. For the most part, this first workbook is easy enough for anyone starting in their lettering journey who has no real point of reference.
So, if you'd like to join in the fun, click on the button below to download your free lettering practice workbook! Just print and keep your pages in a binder so that you can look back a few weeks down the line and see your growth.
And remember, you don't need to have fancy shmancy writing tools to begin practicing your hand lettering skills. Sure, brush pens are nice, but never underestimate the power of a good ol' number 2 pencil.
Don't forget to share your work on Instagram and use the #letteringbootcamp hashtag on your pictures and tag me (@paisleyinparis and @letteringbootcamp) on your caption so that I may cheer you on!
