Topic: Bible Journaling
The font for this week was named 'contemporary versals' in the book by Joanne Fink, Complete Guide to Bible Journaling. It leaves a lot of room for interpretation and decoration so that makes it 'just my style'.
The group leader had us working with the theme word 'sing'.
Monday, we practiced just that word:
On Tuesday, we got to see the whole alphabet and practiced making doodles to decorate the letters. I added a few other embellishments to my page.
I spent so much time on Wednesday's homework that it extended into Thursday, too. I liked it so much that I believe I will have it turned into Christmas cards next year.
I spent most of my time on coloring (first with colored pencils), recoloring (added brush marker to letters and stars), smothing colors (used blender pencil then blender pen), correcting colors (added Distress Marker to all but letters and stars) and detailing in color (sky was not smooth enough so I added intentional swirls).
I think this is the first lettering piece that I have had enough foresight to make a copy of before coloring. In fact, I colored the copy so I have the original for future use.
On to Friday. That is the day we use the new font in our Bibles. I worked in 1 Chronicles 15:23 and combined the versals with some faux brush lettering.
I did only the set of music notes over the scripture I was quoting for illustration. The rest is all about the decorative lettering.
