Hand Lettering - Journal Page

I've been computer-printing a lot of my wording recently, and had lost confidence in my hand lettering skills. This troubled me, because I feel that hand lettering is a hugely important element of art journaling (because it is so personal, and unique to the writer).  Always best to tackle a problem head-on, so I thought I'd go for it, and do a page with a major focus on hand lettering. 


I'm quite pleased with the lettering, so hopefully if I keep at it my confidence will return.  (And yes, the love affair with orange continues!)  The white highlights are Posca paint pen, which is an absolute joy to use and has ended my quest to find the best white pen on the market.

fantastic! hopefully that has gone a long way to restoring that knocked confidence :)

(and am I allowed a "I told you so" re Posca pens? :) )

Fabulous! And the orange really zings. Have never heard of posca pens- must look them up!
