About This Class


Do you love lettering? It’s amazing how the interest in lettering has simply exploded over the last couple of years.

In this class, I will teach you how to add block lettering in many forms to your lettering that will add creativity using typography.

I have been using block lettering since I was in elementary school. I would add it to my handwritten notes to my friends as well as the notes I would take in class. However, I recently added block lettering to every single coloring page design I created for my book, Broken Crayons Still Color.

You could say I love me some block lettering. LOL

I enjoy combing different types of typography into the same layout.

Whether you are creating coloring book pages, handmade cards, or art pieces you sell on Etsy, this is a skill you can use for years to come.

When you enroll in this class you will get 3 different block lettering practice sheets that you can download and use over and over. You will also get blank practice sheets in both a large and small size to use as you practice as well.

You will then learn 5 variations to add design to your block lettering to make it stand out. Finally, I will share with you 5 additional ways to mix up your block lettering to get your creative juices flowing.

Click enroll, download your practice sheets, and let’s get started.
