Journaling update: add style to your letters

7870.Letter Love.jpg-350x0 Do you like changing it up in your journal? Not only with what you write, but possibly HOW you write it?

Joanne Sharpe has a new column, starting with the January/February issue of Cloth Paper Scissors.

Not only will you learn to love your letters, you’ll learn some new ideas for creating a style that is yours alone.


You just need to write the word(s) and grab some of your favorite pens and markers!

You can keep it simple or really jazz it up.

It’s as simple as 1, 2, 3:

  1. Write the word you want in pencil, in your regular style.
  2. Trace around the letters. Erase the pencil lines inside.
  3. Color in the letters, any way you like.

Don’t miss Joanne’s column, where you’ll learn lots of ideas and tips for adding your own special style to all of your lettering projects.

In the March/April issue, Joanne will share her Lettering Equations.

Have fun with it.  I know I did!!
