Bonjour Happy Journals !

If you love agenda and creative lettering, this 365 Creative Lettering Agenda project is for you ! 

The concept is simple:

a short sentence or a word a day for a year in an agenda.

This project is perfect to practice Creative Lettering and to ensure a few minutes of journaling daily.


Step 1 - Chose your agenda

You can find many agenda on the market.

For this project, the ideal format is a weekly agenda (a week on a page). 

Below are my favorite ones:

HOBONICHI

Very thin creme paper but quite resistant including to watercolor.

The one on the photo is a 5 year agenda (instead of standard weekly).

MOLESKINE

Moleskine paper is my favorite: thin, creme, and resistant to about anything (except ink).

TRAVELER’S COMPANY

Creme paper.

This agenda is in two different  booklet (January to June - July to December). This format is ideal as it fits perfectly in a Travelers note book. 


Step 2 - Chose a theme for your project

You can use about anything as inspiration to find words to write.

  • Instagram is full of creative lettering challenges. I often refer to 2 accounts that keep track of most of creative challenges: @letteringchallenges and @letteringchalengeshq. 

  • Flow Magazine offers in its December issue a 365 days card with positive thinking and thoughts.. perfect for daily inspirations

  • Yogi Tea If you are a tea drinker, you will love the Yogi Tea brand. This is organic tea and each teabag has a positive thought on it’s label. You can save use them for your creative lettering project as well as keeping the label as collage elements in your other journals.

Step 3 - Pens

Any pen really works for this project though “soft” ones or "calligraphy" style pens may be more convenient: 

  • Sign Pen - Pentel

  • ZIG - Calligraphy

  • Tombow - Calligraphy Pen

  • Tombow - ABT dual brush
