Either You Run the Day or the Day Runs You

Hi and welcome to Drawn to DIY!

Last week, I posted a brush lettering printable using the Zig Clean Color brushes. 

Today, I'm sharing a quote using a spotter brush and watercolor. 

As opposed to the Zig Clean Color brushes, using a regular brush and watercolor is a bit trickier. You'll definitely need more practice to control the amount of ink with water and the pressure you put on your strokes. The upside though is that you are able to use any size of brush you want whereas the Zigs or the Tombows usually only have one size.

For this printable, I used a spotter brush which I find great for lettering. The brush is thin and tiny so it translates really nicely when you do your upstrokes. I also wanted to show the use of brush lettering for regular print, as opposed to the usual cursive. Share below: how do you find it so far? 

EIther your run the day or the day runs you - Printable by Drawn to DIY

This week's quote is from the famous motivational speaker and entrepreneur, Jim Rohn.

Either you run the day, or the day runs you. 

With piling responsibilities, it's fairly easy to lose track of our priorities sometimes. Make no mistake, there is a difference between the two. We often fill our days with back-to-back activities but it's good to check once in a while which are the ones that move the needle and which simply waste our time and effort.
