5 Ways to Letter the months of the year

IIt’stime for the lucky month of lettering to begin.

As March approaches, spring is in the air, along with the luck of the Irish and the joy of St. Patrick’s Day celebrations. What better way to welcome this vibrant month than by infusing our calligraphy and hand-lettering with the season’s spirit?

LLet’sreview the bullet journal header ideas you can use on your cover pages or any other bujo spread.

1. Ribbon Style Calligraphy

To create a ribbon-style calligraphy, start by using a base color. I’m using the Tombow Dual Brush Pen #173. Then, write March using your best modern calligraphy style.

Other options of pens to do modern calligraphy are the Crayola markers or super tips.

Next, darken the upstrokes using a darker color than your base. II’llbe using the Tombow Dual Brush #195. With an even darker color or with the same dark color, go over the ends of the upstrokes to create more depth where the upstrokes start and end.

This is optional, but using the base color, go over the start and end of the downstrokes. This will give your calligraphy more depth.

Add more pop and details by adding a line outline to the downstrokes with a gold or white gel pen. I used the gold pen from the Linc pens pack.

2. Block Lettering Cut Out with Extended Calligraphy

Start by putting a piece of washi tape across the page where you want your march header to be.

PRO TIP: to lose the stickiness of the washi tape, dab it on your hand or clothes. This will prevent the washi tape from ripping your paper once it’s time to remove it from the page.

Letter March uses block-style lettering and a brush pen. I’m using the Tombow Dual Brush #133 for this March block lettering idea.

Once you’ve redone the block lettering, carefully remove the washi tape.

Now, letter march using an extended calligraphy style.

To make this style more aesthetic and pleasing, write the script letter into the corresponding block letter, as shown in the picture below.

To create extended calligraphy, make the connecting strokes longer. I used the Tombow Fudenosuke Brush Pen.

These are the colors II’musing:

  • Tombow Chartreuse #133
  • Tombow Pale Yellow #062
  • Tombow Alice Blue #291

Once satisfied with the background, write March in block lettering using a small tip brush pen.

You can leave the title like that or add more details, like adding a border to the background and a greenery doodle at the end.
