This week we are going to practice a little flourishing. I like flourishing descenders the most, so I decided to add some swirls and curves to J and y in the word ‘July.”
This Stream Dream pen is stunning in real life. Photos don’t do it justice. The pastel mint green is, well, ‘dreamy!’ It can be found in my Set 2 of Dream pens. Did you know that Set 2 is named “Meadow” and all the colours of the Dream pens are named accordingly.
What’s the best way to practice flourishing? Pencil and paper! The Kelly Creates Dotted pad is super smooth and great to use for practice.

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).
All are available in my online store at http://www.KellyCreatesStore.com (we ship international) or you can click HERE to see where to purchase my products at retailers around the world.
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).
