Sure I know that learning calligraphy involves following a lot of rules. But after you learn all the rules and have some confidence with a brush pen, then it’s time to relax and break some rules so that your own style develops naturally.

This means that you need to stop worrying that your calligraphy might not look like my tracing worksheets. Maybe you write your r’s a certain way and that is unique to you. Some people don’t even care about thick and thin strokes – and that is okay!

After you use my tracing worksheet, put it aside where you can’t see it and practice freehand, and see what happens. Try not to be too critical. Enjoy the process, and you’ll be surprised with the results.

If you’re new to brush lettering, you can find out more about how to start learning calligraphy as a beginner by clicking HERE. It’s a good idea to learn your ABCs before you start writing words. Jumpstart your skills with my Kelly Creates Workbook for Large Brush Pens, Deluxe Lettering Kit and Smooth Practice Paper pad, which is suitable for all ages!

You can use both large and small brush pens to trace the words, such as the Kelly Creates Dream pens and the Multicolor Small Brush pens. Another good choice for pens is the Deluxe Lettering kit and the 3-pack of Black brush pens too. (You can also order most of my lettering supplies from my Amazon Storefront).

These dual sided Kelly Creates Dream pens are a DREAM... both tips are great for calligraphy, hand lettering, home decor, cards, and more!  dream pens kelly creates set 2 meadow    Kelly Creates Multicolor Small Brush Pen Set 2  Kelly Creates Deluxe Lettering kit  Kelly Creates 3 pack brush pens have 3 sizes of tips: small medium and bold.

You also need to print on smooth paper like HP LaserJet Premium 32 lbs. or use tracing paper(Canson Marker paper) on top of regular copy paper, which is too rough for brush tips and will damage them.

After you finish tracing, practice your freehand skills on my super smooth Kelly Creates Paper Pads. I highly recommend using the Dotted or Lined pads (never practice on blank paper).
