Excellent - loads of ideas
I really liked this one - although more for the background ideas than the actual lettering!

She showed journals, demonstrated on paper, art canvas and canvas boards, using acrylics and texture paste. These gave a great starting point for any type of artwork.

RE the lettering, she demonstrated style and placement, to make wall art as well as journal pieces.

Clear, easy to follow, definitely one to add to your library!
