February, is the month of love, chilly winds, and a fresh start to the new year.

As we dive deeper into the calendar, it’s time to infuse our bullet journals and planners with creativity that mirrors the charm and character of this unique month.

What better way to do this than through hand lettering?

Let’s go over these different unique hand-lettering styles.


how to do block lettering with crayola markers

For this block lettering hand lettering style, I’m using Crayola Supertips.

First, sketch the lettering using a pencil. Then slightly erase using a kneaded eraser. I like doing this because sometimes the pencil marks won’t erase properly once you go over them with markers.

After you’re done with the block lettering, add an outline with a Monoline pen.

To make the lettering pop even more, add shadows to the right and slightly underneath every part of the outline using a gray pen. I’m using the Tombow Fudenosuke.

block lettering with tombow brush pens

For this chunky – bubble style of lettering, start by sketching February in a block lettering style. Then add outlines to each letter.

I like my bubble letters to mix and be supclosesed to each other. If you prefer them to be more spaced out, be sure to leave more space between each letter.

Once you’re done sketching the lettering, go over it with a monoline pen.

I’m coloring each lettering with these 3 colors – interchanging each color.

Tombow Dual Brush Mauve 817, Blush 772, and Pink 723.

After you’re done coloring the letters, go over them again with a monoline pen. This time make sure the outline is imperfect and add zigzag lines to some parts of the letters.

For this February header idea, doodle an open envelope. Then doodle 8 hearts coming out of the envelope.

I colored the inner part of the envelope with a Tombow Dual Brush pen Mist Purple 553, thouter partrt of the envelope with a Tombow Violet 673, and the hearts with a pink Pentel Fude Touch Brush Pen.

Inside each heart, I wrote each letter spelling February with a monoline pen.

coquete aesthetic lettering style

Last, but not least, is the coquette aesthetic lettering style.

Start by doing bounce lettering using a base marker. I’m using the Tombow Dual Brush pen carnation 761.

Then we’re going to create a ribbon-style lettering by coloring the upstrokes of each lettering. I’m using a hot pink Pentel Fude Touch brush pen.

To give the lettering more dimension, I used the light Pentel Fude Touch brush pens to go over the upper and bottom parts of the base lettering. Then, I went over the inner parts of the upstrokes with a Kelly Creates hot pink, which is a darker shade of pink than the Pentel Touch Brush pen.
