Topic: Bible Journaling
Sweeter than honey - that perfectly describes the font we used this week for journaling.
We started out on Monday with the assigned word:
You can see that I,once again, struggled to keep this as an upright font. We were asked to note that on a letter like the lowercase N the upstroke separates and leans away from the leading downstroke. The caps have a bit of curve.
On Tuesday we learned the full alphabet:
Again with the leaning letters! I did do better with the upstokes pulling away.
Wednesdays lesson got us to playing with applying color with bubble wrap! I used three colors of Distress Inks and applied my color to three different backgrounds. After lettering on them, I added bee stickers and made them into card fronts.
On the last background I changed to a honeycomb lettering style I found on Pinterest. I then drew a little beehive. All three cards have accents added with gold gel pen.
On Thursday used the new font to write a scripture. I had some hexagon embossed cardstock a friend had sent in a swap and I used a Distress Ink pad to sweep over it to add color. I then used a brown Sigma Micron pen to do my lettering and added thickened lines with a Prismacolor brush marker.
I went back and traced the thin lines and both sides of the thick lines in black before adding a peel-off bee sticker in brown. I made this one into a card as well.
As usual, our Friday assignment was to use the new font in our Bible. I chose excerpts from Psalm 19:9-10.
I used the font in a very straightforward manner and even made it stand upright as it was designed to do! I found pictires of honey dippers on Pinterest and drew mine onto the page with Sigma Micron 01 black pen. I used double lines on most of it to camoflage wobbles in the long lines.
Coloring was done with Prisacolor pencils with accents of white gel pen.
When I was writing in the reference, I accidentally wrote 'Proverbs' instead of 'Psalms'. To fix this I used the Sigma Micron pen to color over the whole reference in a solid block. Then I wrote in the correct one using white gel pen. When it was dry, I used colored pencil to make the white pen cream colored to match the page. Crisis averted.
Next week I am teaching the font we will use (online). The lessons will get posted here on Friday.
