Creative Lettering agenda: a 365 days project !
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:
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 paper is my favorite: thin, creme, and resistant to about anything (except ink).
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
If you have a "note page" on the right, you can use it to practice larger lettering
