If cold weather makes you grumpy, you’ll love this funny Winter Lettering Practice Sheet. Experiment with brush lettering, hand lettering and different types of pens to create a unique piece of art!
There aren’t many things I dislike more than being cold. I’m miserable in the winter and everyone around me is miserable, too. There’s a reason I live in Arizona! I love this quote from my Summer Fun Coloring Book, and I decided to turn it into a Funny Winter Lettering Practice Sheet that you can download for free!
You can find a more detailed list of some of the brush lettering pens I use, but these are the items I recommend for this project. I’m in love with the ombre effect from theEcoline Brush Pen. I only bought four and now I’m wishing I bought the whole set. And obviously, I recommend my trusty Tombow pens!
- White paper for printing and practice
- Canson XL Marker Paper for Practice
- Canson XL Bristol for final work
Markers and Brush Pens
- Ecoline Brush Pen in 578
- Tombow Fudenosuke
- Tombow Dual Brush Pen (small tip)
- Tombow MonoTwin (not used, but would still work well with this printable)
Tracing Tools (optional)
You can trace these a couple different ways. You can print them out at full black and white color like I provided, then trace right onto the Canson XL Marker Paper. The marker paper is very thin- you wouldn’t want to use it for final work, but it’s amazing to practice with. Since it is a slick surface, make sure you don’t smudge it.
You can also print it out and adjust your black settings so you don’t use up too much ink (side note–I need more black ink, as you can tell from my pictures!!!) Use the Cricut Bright Pad to trace over the artwork with some practice copy paper, or with the Canson XL Bristol when you’re ready for final work.
For the most part, I use copy paper for any practice work. It’s cheap and easy to use! I like this winter lettering practice sheet because it has a variety of lettering styles you can try out. Most people focus on script lettering, but I think getting your serif and sans serif letters down is just as important…and sometimes it’s harder to get those straight lines.
