Faux Typography

After offering some of my favorite tips about making faux calligraphy a few weeks back, I had multiple readers ask questions about how I made pretty lettering that was featured on my Instagram and Tumblr.  I remember learning some of the basics from my mom, but most of my pretty handwriting I would have to give credit to American Girl magazine.  I distinctively remember learning how to draw letters that were also palm trees.

Here are some of my favorite ways to add style and flair to any writing (cursive or print).
