ALAW wrap up

Here's the end of my first ALAW (a letter a week) alphabet following the 'dotty' theme Fiona set up.

The second alpha of the year is artist choice and I have no idea what to do.....we're still to keep the format of a 3" square as a base.  If the idea of working with letters and forms intrigues you, you can join in any time and if you make a letter a week, now's the perfect time to start because you have 6 months to finish an alphabet.  It's hard to believe the year is almost half over - holy moly!

The last part of this alpha project is to figure out how to display the letters.  I started off thinking the letters would go into a simple concertina booklet of some sort and they were designed to connect in a linear way.  I'm toying with a couple other possibilities, but can't quite settle.  Might work on it a bit this long weekend.

Hope everyone (in the US) enjoys their long Memorial Day weekend - relax, create, smile and hug someone you love!


  1. They are all terrific Terrie. Loads of patience and thought went into these little art works. Enjoy the weekend, Annette x

  2. Those letters make my hand cramp (grin). Seriously, these are incredibly beautiful. I can't get over how you have made all those letters and are now starting on more!

    Nothing to do with lettering, but have you read "Alphbetica" by Lynn Perelli? Sorry, I didn't spell her last name right, but she was the author of "True Colors" (TC) and I'm too lazy to find my copy. It was a book showing ABs that were about altered numbers and letters. It is one decent book, especially since many of the same artists in TC played in the Alphabetica, too. There were more techniques and not as much angst as in TC.

  3. I've been absolutely loving this alphabet Terrie and am sad to see it finished. That being said, I can't wait to see what you do next. I have no idea what I'm going to do either...you'd think six months notice would be enough but apparently not :-) Enjoy your long weekend! xx
