Word Collage Hand Lettering Challenge
Calligraphy tutorial with Kiley Bennett, author of Super Simple Hand Lettering
Word collage for the win, y’all! One of my favorite things to create is what I call a “word collage.” A word collage is simply a…collage of words! Duh! Here’s an example of what I mean. I love creating these, not only for myself but to make as gifts to remind my friends and family about how freakin’ awesome they are. – Kiley
Grab your favorite calligraphy pen and get started! For this word collage, pick 15 words or phrases that best describe you and show us your design by using the hashtag, #foxchapelpublishing on Instagram. To get you in the mood, join our mailing list below to download a sample hand lettering alphabet practice page from Kiley’s Super Simple Hand Lettering book. In this printable, you will find how to draw letters. The alphabet is broken down into strokes so you can see how each letter is actually written. Practice imitating each letter one at a time, following the stroke guide. When you are creating your collage, remember to mix and match your hand lettering fonts.
