5 WAYS TO LETTER JUNE + FREE PRACTICE WORKSHEET
Back in March, I decided to start a series of FREE calligraphy practice sheets with the months of the year. This idea came after I went back to the bullet journal system. I wanted to see all the ways that I can apply my lettering skills into my bullet journal. Keeping each month different when I wrote it on my cover page seemed very interesting to me.
My goal is to keep doing them till we complete the 12 months. So make sure you subscribe to my email list to get access to my FREE resource library, where I will have them. Even if you don’t have a bullet journal, these worksheets will still help you practice your lettering.

HOW TO LETTER JUNE IN 5 DIFFERENT WAYS AND WHY
- Faux Calligraphy
- Basic Morden Calligraphy Style
- Bounce Calligraphy style
- Flourished Calligraphy
- Block lettering Style.
A great way to improve your calligraphy is by writing the same words in different ways. By doing this, you’ll find new styles and stay with the one you like the most.
Each time you letter a word a different way, you can pick the letter form you like best and keep using it. Developing your calligraphy style is essential to make sure your lettering doesn’t look like anyone else. Sure, there are going to be some similarities, but you want your calligraphy style to be unique.
SUPPLIES I RECOMMEND FOR THIS FREE PRACTICE WORKSHEET
Having the right tools to practice calligraphy is important. You don’t need anything expensive or fancy to start. But make sure you’re using the right tools to help you avoid frustration:
These are the supplies I recommend to use with any of my worksheets:
- Paper. I recommend HP Premium32 Paper because of its higher quality, which is excellent for your brush pens. Or you can also use tracing paper and put it on to of your worksheet to practice. This way, you only need to print the sheet once and still practice several times. You can use any printer paper if you are using a regular pen. I ONLY recommend regular paper if you are doing Faux Calligraphy. Regular printer paper can shorten the life of your brush pens.
- Brush Pens: I designed these worksheets for small tip brush pens mind. Here are the ones I’m using on the Video Tutorial:
- Monoline pen: The Faux Calligraphy part of the worksheet can be done with any regular pen. I prefer the Staedtler Triplus Fineliner, which I use for my everyday writing. Or the Tombo MONO drawing pens.

- Fill out the form at the bottom of this post or go to my free resource library if you already have the password to get in. Once you’re there, select the practice sheet you’d like to download. For this tutorial, select the: 5 Ways to Letter June.
- The worksheet will be an instant download, and you can print it at home or a local printer store or library. I use this inexpensive laser printer. (This printer is black and white. But that’s all you need at the moment to print the practice sheets). If you prefer a color printer, this is another inexpensive option
- Set your printer scaling to “Fit Page.”
- Once you’ve printed your worksheet, you’re ready to get your practice going!
- IMPORTANT: Slow down! As you are practicing, make sure to take your time. Doing calligraphy is not meant to be fast.
- REMEMBER: Use light pressure for the upstrokes (when you’re moving the pen upwards). And heavy pressure for the downstrokes (when you’re moving the pen upwards). Find a comfortable position and take breaks if you need to. Lift your pen between each stroke as you’re practicing the letterforms. You can also adjust your page anytime to get a better angle.
