In a recent post, I talked about my love of sketchnotes and visual note taking. I am like, OB-sessed with practicing my handwriting every chance I get. I found handwritten grocery lists to be a great way of exercising these skills, and have collected some that I’ve done in the past few months for you below.
For each list, I tried to practice a different visual element each time: using images in place of words; writing text in all-caps or all lower-case; cursive/scroll print; block letters; bullets; and frames/containers (frames and containers are shapes that surround a word/words in your notes). You can learn more about sketchnote practice in Sunni Brown’s super-helpful-webinar-series-on-visual note taking or in this post by Craighton Berman.
Now that I’ve discovered the AnyList app, I’m no longer handwriting my grocery lists (if you’re a list-maker, you seriously need to check out that app!) but I definitely plan on continuing to practice sketchnotes :-)!How do you practice your sketchnote skills? Let me know in the comments below!
