When it comes to our art and lettering we want our final piece to look GREAT. But sometimes in the process of making it we make a mistake or our kids take a pen to it and make some marks. Well have no fear, Photoshop is here.

In this video I show you how to fix a mistake a made while lettering. Ok, it wasn’t a mistake, just some pink marker I needed to erase.

HOW IT HAPPENED

This is the mess that’s behind the camera that you guys don’t get to see when I post a finished photo to my Instagram feed.

First of all, I letter a piece a few times before I actually like it.

Because I’m super judgmental of myself and of course I want it to look good.

In this instance I just wanted to letter a couple words quickly, but it just didn’t come out the way I wanted it, probably because I didn’t have a plan.

Once I took a pencil and sketched it out I was satisfied.

But that also left me with some pink lettering in the top left corner of the paper that I needed to get rid of. I couldn’t cut it off because it was too close to my leaf.

I’ve been working with Photoshop for the past 15 years, so I knew I could quickly fix it in Photoshop and didn’t have to worry about it.

In this video I will show you how to do it 3 different ways.

Because depending on your situation or “mistake” you may need a different approach.
