I used a wide range of art supplies & techniques: acrylic paint, watercolor pencils, oil pastels, stencils, stamps; paint spreading with a credit card, a brush, my fingers, spritzing and splattering.
Pages 1,2 (2 is smaller than the rest of the pages)
Pages 7 & 8 - I made them side by side with a big 12" clock stencil as the first layer. The black & white is another duck tape pattern.
Smooshy finger painting, some brush dancing on the right, stenciling and a small blue butterfly stamp along with mixed use of my duck tapes.
Wanted to have something dark to try my white lettering pens on....not my fave patterns, but maybe the addition of lettering and details will liven them up.
Like these colors MUCH better.
Finally, the back cover.
So, as I finish the lettering on each page, I'll share my progress.... One of my goals this year is to add some pizzazz to my handwriting. I think I have neat, tidy printing but it's unremarkable and I want to be able to be more artsy about writing when the occasion calls for it. This class is NOT a calligraphy or class for making formal, structured letters, but more about free flowing, creative, spontaneous alphabets. I'm having so much fun with it. AND I like that it combines my enjoyment of making layered, textured pages with lettering. What could be better?
