Calligraphy Lettering: DIY Amazing Gifts!!!
Calligraphy is absolutely beautiful but can be challenging to learn. The Complete Book of Calligraphy Lettering makes learning this beautiful art easier for everyone!
An attempt to learn calligraphy in middle school turned out to be a total nightmare. Let’s just say my teacher was better at doing it than teaching it. Certainly not an enjoyable experience. We shall leave it at that.
The Complete Book of Calligraphy Lettering, however, was able to explain it in a way I could understand much better! Not only do they verbally explain it, they also have step by step photo tutorials to show you the necessary angles, strokes and amounts of pressure for each type of calligraphy. Definitely things that would have made it easier to learn in the class!
None the less, I’m learning it now! The book makes it so easy to grasp the style and write in gorgeous fonts! You’ll be ready to write beautiful letters and cards in no time! And now, for the most well known quote from Ron Popeil:
The Complete Book of Calligraphy Lettering
But Wait, There’s More!
Not only will this book teach you calligraphy, you’ll also learn great lettering patterns, swashes, & more that you can customize to whatever you love (perhaps snowflakes or flowers in gorgeous letters). You’ll learn fabulous hand lettering, but what could we use it for? You guessed it…. But wait, there’s more!
There are multiple step by step tutorials for craft projects to utilize your newfound skills! They walk you through, with pictures of course, how to create a Personalized Journal Cover, Quotation Art, Calligraphy Place settings, Negative Space Lettering & Illumination, chalk lettering and it goes on!
Loving that they included not just how to do it, but gave ideas and instructions to get started!
This girl is thinking buying the book and supplies will save me money on wall art, gifts, awesome planners (I’m totally modifying the personalized journal idea) and tons more! Saving money all the time, that’s what motivates me!
Ever seen those gorgeous digital quotes, words and so on? Wish you could do your own? This book will actually teach you how! Not only does it teach you how to set up a photo shoot to get a perfect shot of your newly created art, it walks you through uploading and editing with Photo Shop to modify the background, change the color range, etc! Once complete, you will have your letters and no background to put over anything you’d like! Sounds like saving money again, bring on the canvas prints!
