In October, it’s fun to practice lettering all the Halloween themed words! This week I combined a printed ‘Happy’ with a script ‘haunting.’
I used the Stone Dream pen from Set 2 and the Black small brush pen for the shadows. This neutral combo is perfect for Halloween words.
I don’t often show a close up pic of the shadows when I letter anymore. Why? Because I’m getting shakier and less precise as I age. And black shadows are particularly daunting because they show ALL the imperfections lol! But I was having a really good day and was so happy with the black shadows that I took a photo.

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 (only USA shipping) 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).
