Happy Write It Wednesday Y’all!
So we’ve made it to our short week Wednesday and on our countdown till Saturday NCAA Football and Sunday NFL Football! ❤︎⚜🐯🏈 Who’s Ready?! Anywho, I wanted to show you today a few ways to decorate your lettering. If you’ve seen my Instagram you would have noticed the different ways I have ‘decorated’ my words. Let’s get started!
A Few Ways to Decorate
Making polka dots on my words is probably my favorite way out of all. Putting polka dots is very relaxing to me. Don’t get my wrong practicing my lettering is totally relaxing but then just dotting the dots down is so much more.
Here, I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pen number 703 to write out the word and then number 245 for my polka dots. Personally, I think not only does it give the word a totally new look, it also hides any ‘flaws’ there may be within the word.
Aww, blending… Blending out of this bunch is my second favorite. Tombow already has 96 Dual Brush Pens total but then to go and blend two or more together just gives you an infinity amount of different colors.
For this particular blending word, I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pen numbers 847 and 373. First, I ‘scribbled’ on my blending palette using number 847 (one of these days I will post what mine looks like so be sure to check back or better yet, subscribe to my e-mails below). Then, using number 373 to ‘picked’ up my other color turning my pen slightly at every swipe. Finally, I just wrote as usual, in this case the word ‘blending.’
I love using my yellows and other neon type colors. Unfortunately, they are quite hard to see if you don’t do something. So, my favorite this to do with using such is to outline. Outlining a word especially when written in a neon type color, really makes the word POP! You can see the different in my two pics above.
For this word, I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pen number 133 to write it out. Then I used my Tombow Fudenosuke Hard-Tip Pen to outline it. Other than my Dual Brush Pens, their Fudenosuke Hard-Tip pen is in my top favorite of pens.
Last but not least, there is the two-toned words. Forgive me, as I don’t quite remember but back at the beginning of summer, one of the girls I follow on Instagram showed how to do the two-toned look and I just fell in love with it! Though Polka Dots are still my favorite, Two-Toning a word or phrase, as I have done, is definitely in my top favorites.
To create the two-toned look, I used my Tombow Dual Brush Pen number 703 to write out my word. Then using a scrap sheet of paper, I covered half the word up and marked the uncovered portion with my Tombow Dual Brush Pen number 755. Once all the letters and connectors were ‘marked,’ I removed the scrap sheet of paper and carefully finished coloring in the bottom portion of the word.
