Hand lettering is awesome, and yes, the best tools are brush markers or brushes. But, if you are just starting out or on a budget no worries, Crayola markers can go really far when it comes to lettering. Let me show you how you can achieve that brush lettering look without a brush marker.
My favorite thing to do with a water brush is...

If you think I edit my Instagram photos in Photoshop you're crazy. Lol!
I actually discovered this awesome app called Snapseed a while ago and use that 90% of the time. Because 90% of the time, I take photos with my phone.

I’ve got a fun and colorful tutorial for you today to go along with the 2018 Watercolor and Lettering Challenge.

When was the last time you saw beautiful lettering and decided that it was too hard for you and you couldn't possibly learn it?
Well, I'm here to tell you that you are wrong. I'm not gonna lie, it takes
A LOT of practice. But, you can totally learn brush lettering.
All you need to do is start, practice and you will see the progress.
Mocking up your lettering is a must if you wish to sell it, whether it’s a print or other product. No one has all the things or all the time to be taking fancy photos of the actual print in 10 different settings or in two or three different frames. Watch this video tutorial, taken straight out of my course, and follow along.
