I am taking a lettering class at My Creative Classroom. It is techniques for hand lettering with the fine tip and broad tip markers. The lessons are well designed and I have enjoyed practicing the techniques so far. I have made the first 3 sample panels that we will make for our collection of techniques.
This is Wk 1- panel 1. The goal was bouncing and adding weight to the letters. On this, my 3rd try to make proper use of my panel, I gave up and kept the off balanced border with the addition of a candle. It works, right?!
Panel 2. I made the background with reinkers on a sheet protector. Once the ink is sprayed well (pre wet the watercolor paper panels) press the paper on to it. This is messy but I love all the fabulous papers I got from this technique. When I try this again, I will not use such a bold filler, the pink is too much for the background.
Panel 3. This is the result of playing around with the “DO-Dad” alphabet. I created this saying from a quote of Mother Teresa. “Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do… but how much love we put in that action.”
