Just signed up on the spur of the moment for this class with Julie Fei Fan Balzer, only thought afterwards hope I don't need lots of specialist equipment for it as my budget won't stretch. It seemed to be destiny though asi have been thinking about trying to improve my writing recently and was even doing some practicing when the advert appeared on youtube.
Anybody else doing this class?

I am not doing the class. Lettering, I assume, means hand-lettering, which was done quite a bit more here when I first started scrapbooking a decade ago than it is now. I invested in many colors of pens because of that, but there were more things you could invest in, like tools and solvents to blend the colors.

Lettering from ten years ago. I just want to be able to write on my layouts and not end up ripping it off hiding it or computer journaling instead.

I signed up. I have seen Julie do lettering on other videos, and she makes it very accessible. I do art journaling, so I suspect I will use it more there than on my layouts, but maybe both
What can I post about?

I think its a great idea! I started out teaching lettering at an LSS and would love to see a new style of lettering come back onto scrap pages, journals etc. I didn't sign up for the class but will be looking forward to seeing some of the work done with it.
Really lettering can require only a minimal amount of supplies, a graphite pencil, and whatever colors you choose. They don't have to be all pens, you could use watercolor pencils, markers, regular gel pens among other things. I found I had most of the stuff in my stash already, but gel pens and colored pencils are pretty inexpensive, so you could easily buy them and not break your budget. You only need one good blender if you wish to go that way.
