If Your Dreams Don't Scare You They Aren't Big Enough


Hi and welcome to Drawn to DIY!

For a few weeks now, I've been sharing basic techniques for using Tombow dual brush pens and for today's post, I'll show you how to easily create a brush lettering color block effect. 

As you can see, I've written the words "dreams," "scare," and "big enough" using the brush tip and the rest of the words using the fine tip. Afterwards, you can take a piece of paper, place it over the top half of the letters, and using a darker shade of pen, write over over the bottom part of the letters.

Here's another example.


And that's it! Simple, right?

In case you missed it, the previous posts about Tombow techniques can be found here (using both tips) and here (shadow effect). 


Stay tuned for next week when I'll share how to use the Tombow dual brush pens for blending.

By the way, if you're wondering why I chose this quote for this week, it's because I'm preparing for some exciting stuff for the blog. I can't say more right now except that if you have dreams, choose to dream big and make it happen — the more it scares you, the more you should go for it. ;)

See you again this Thursday for a DIY just in time for pumpkin season!
