Learn Whimsical Lettering with MZ

I’ve always wanted to have the perfect handwriting and in my quest to attain said handwriting I have tried several different kinds of lettering. Brush Lettering, Calligraphy and then this Whimsical Lettering. I love brush lettering a lot but this kind of whimsical lettering allows me to play more.

There are very few rules and a lot of color and doodling – both things I love to do! This is a super fun and easy to learn technique and is perfect for both beginners and advanced artists and crafters. This kind of lettering looks super cool on scrapbook layouts and cards too.

So whether you’re a card maker or a scrapbooker or an art journaler you will learn a lot in this class and you’ll be able to use what you learn in your crafty pursuits.

I’ll take you through all the basics you need to know on video in real time and I’ll show you lots of examples and we’ll create fun projects using what you’ve learnt too! So let’s get started. I’ll see you in the videos!
