Square I don't usually start dark
Use a stencil Began with lavender which was not a happy choice but I've been watching Flora Bowley's together apart sessions (free for 48 hours after the live) on occasion as well and she is a great reminder that you can always cover things so added some white. Not convinced I can turn this into something I like, but it is early days
Blue I used Phtahlo Blue : drop, spray, drip....still not liking this at all.
Swirl I left this for a couple of days because I am totally uninspired and find this ugly, but today I know I need to make a bold move - I want a focal and think I will add a face or silhouette with a swirl of hair.
So much happier! Maybe some glaze?....

A good chance to share some lettering tips: Use different pens, Letter stamps with staz-on ink, and of course you can print on other paper and then glue it down if you're not confident to letter directly on your page. You can paint background paper or use gelli prints for this, use old calendars or scrapbook papers or stamp on tissue for a disappearing look. See all my posts that I've labelled Lettering HERE and workshops with Joanne Sharpe HERE. This is a screen shot of the fonts Effy demonstrates in this video :
See her Pinterest board - apparently it's a new trend in calligraphy.
I'm happy with mine
