This is a fabulous little layout that is…. Truly out of this world. *groan* I hear you! Sorry, I couldn’t resist. The lettering itself is so unique and I LOVE it.

I learned how to create lettering like this from a book called The Botanical Hand Lettering Workbook.

Another little layout that is out of this world! I love these little illustrations, they are so cute. They seem to be simple enough to recreate and where you struggle to create doodles, you can always use a stencil like this and join up the lines.

The great thing about including all the months of the year in this post, is so that you can see the change of colours with the seasons.

I love the colours chosen for these examples because it shows a beautiful subtle transition into winter from the fall months.
