I did lettering for the Vacation Bible School banners again this year. The came with the lettering on the left and the kids in the car.
To do these I measure the open space and draw a full-size block on the computer in CorelDraw. Then I look for fonts that suit the theme and type in the information. To print it full-scalee I have to move the text bit by bit over the 'page' on the screen, printing after each move. Then the pages are all taped together into a big sheet. I tape this to the patio windows and tape the plastic banner over the top of it using clear packing tape. Everything is then drawn on the banner using "Marks-a-Lot' permanent black markers.
I wanted to set off the information for the Kickoff Festival so I drew in a strip of 'tickets'. These I colored with 'lettuce' alcohol ink using a piece of felt on my blending tool. This has to be done very carefully because the alcohol ink will 'melt' the black marker and smear it.
I made two of these and always make them with materials that will allow them to be displayed out of doors without being in danger of the weather.
