21 days of getting to know myself and my handlettering

Remember I wrote earlier about doing a 21 or 30 day project?
It’s been just over a week since I started a new project, ‘know myself better’ by Gretchen Rubin. And I decided to make it even more fun by combining it with something I love; hand lettering!

I know Gretchen Rubin from her book ‘The Happiness Project’, which I love! After reading her book I started reading her blog and decided to try one of her 21-day projects.

Hand lettering is something I really love but sometimes just forget about when I’m drawing figures, trees and animals. It’s also a skill that I wanted to develop further, something I wanted to experiment with for a while.

Combining the two is great! The daily mail with ideas and suggestions help me with ideas of words and quotations to illustrate. 

At the same time, working and focussing for a few hours on one word or sentence really helps to fully grasp the meaning of it.
