Today I am sharing how to make brush lettering even if you don't know how to hand letter. Say what?!
Brush lettering looks so cool! If you're like me, you tried brush lettering and well, it didn't look as amazing as you thought it would once you put pen to paper. That's why I am super happy that we can make brush lettering quote art WITHOUT knowing how to letter or write well. It's true!

With National Scrapbook Day around the corner, I thought it only fitting to a few ways to use digital brush lettering in your scrapbooks and papercrafts.
Do you LOVE pocket pages? Or do you love using those gorgeous cards made for pocket pages? Some of my favorite pocket page card designs have brush lettering on them, like the cards and papers from the Illustrated Faith line by Bella Blvd. We can actually create our own CUSTOM cards and designs digitally and print them TO ORDER on our printers at home.

I created the pocket page design above using cards I printed on watercolor paper with my HP Envy 5540 printer along with splatters of spray ink and india ink.

Imagine creating one of these with a tribute to a family member who has passed on or as a keepsake with baby's birth date, location, and name. Add watercolor paints to the printed paper for a trendy watercolor art effect. Or print brush lettering onto cards, invitations, and more for custom party decor, custom greeting cards… everyone will think you are a lettering genius!! All of the projects above were creating with my HP Envy 5540 printer and Canva.com.
