Geek Lab: Faux Brush Lettering on my Title



Hello! It’s Caroli here again, and today I want to talk about something that is very trendy and really beautiful: brush lettering!

I love brush lettering , it’s such a beautiful technique and adds a lot to our projects, specially on the titles. Nevertheless, I must admit that although I’ve practiced a lot I’m not good at it. The brush and I are not good friends and most of the time I’m affraid of ruining a pretty page because my lettering comes out horrible.

So, what can we do if we want pretty brush lettering title but are not sure if it will come out as we pictured it on our imagination? we can use faux brush lettering, that is, cut the words with our cutting machine!

In this layout I cut part of my title in black cardstock to keep the brush lettering look. I completed the title using puffy yellow alpha and one acetate word, both included on July kit RASKOG.

Here you can see a closeup of the faux brush lettering, it looks pretty and it’s a  more controlled way of including it in your layout, don’t you think? I love the combination of black lettering, clear word and yellow alpha, it looks interesting and very colorful!

I you want to download Brusher font, which is the one I used on thos project,  you can do it for free here.

I hope you like this idea, it’s quite simple but the results are pretty. Have a lovely day!
