When you think about galaxies you imagine these gorgeous space themes with cosmos and black holes and milky ways. When creating this galaxy hand lettering tutorial, I wanted to make sure it was easy to follow and fun! To be able to create a stunning galaxy (and if you are looking for some space theme inspiration you can head over here for 47 examples of space and galaxy themed spreads too!) So let’s get to it!

Wanting to create a stunning galaxy spread in your Bullet Journal? Well here we have shown you 4 ways you can easily create gorgeous lettering with minimal effort!
Prep Time 3 minutes
Active Time 15 minutes
Drying Time 20 minutes
Total Time 38 minutes
Difficulty Easy

Tools

  • Paint Brush
  • Your Awesomeness!
  • Water for blending
  • Paper towels for dabbing
  • Pencil
  • Soft eraser

Instructions

All of the examples use essentially the same process - create your word, color the the word in with your paint, ink or pencils

  1. Use your pencil to map out the word galaxy - grab your markers, or and make the word slightly thicker with a variety of the galaxy colors from your pencils or markers
  2. Take your paint brush and grab some water - blend your tombow lettering carefully and with not to much water - use you paper towel to dab if you can.
  3. If you are adding some gold or sparkle to it, mix it in gradually and let it blend well.
  4. Wait for the letters to dry and border them with fine liner - grab a lovely gray and give it a shadow

If you are using paint - like the Ecoline or Prima Marketing use them like you are coloring in an image. Remember to wait for it to dry fully so that we aren't smudging and making a total mess of all the pretty galaxy gorgeousness you have created.

It’s not rocket science to create a cool galaxy spreads (see what I did there? rocket science hahaha) So, while I realise this is my first proper tutorial – and also I am always improving so have already learnt from my mistakes and am hoping the next one will be even better!

Here are some snapshots from the tutorial!

You can see we added gold, drop shadows and little white stars to the lettering
