Today we are going to practice watercolour lettering with two words, “sweet dreams,” combining two different styles: script and block.
I think it’s important to remember that when it comes to any hand lettering, you have to decide what you like most. Which of these combinations above do you like more? I often ask people to ‘vote’ about their preferences when I share online. The best way to help you figure out which styles you enjoy is to practice lettering both!
I used the Kelly Creates Teal Watercolor Ink with my Size 2 Kelly Creates Lettering Brush. The Teal ink is in the ‘Cool’ Set 2.

This worksheet allows you to practice script and block at the same time. Click HERE to download the printable worksheet or click the image below.
You can paint right onto your printer paper or you can use tracing paper on top to practice painting with the template as your guide. I recommend my Kelly Creates Watercolor Lettering brushes and palette. The brushes are sizes 1-4 Round and are perfect for painting the letters. .
After you paint on the template, practice freehand on my special Kelly Creates Grid Practice Paper Pad. This heavyweight grid paper is designed specifically for practicing lettering with my Watercolor Inks.
To really improve your watercolor lettering skills, I highly recommend using my workbooks to practice. There is a script workbook, a block style alphabet workbook and a third workbook for words and phrases in a variety of styles.
