Learning Lettering
Topic: Lettering

A while back, I recommended a book my Amy Latta that teaches several lettering styles and embellishments for them in a format that builds techniques one upon another.


I'm not working quickly through this book as I go off to practice things on Dawn Nicole Designs site and the Lettering Lodge at Creative Bible Journaling. I've been picking up some books from the library as inspiration, too.

But, I have gotten through lesson 12 in this book and wanted to show a few of the pages I have done.

The pages for the final practice have some decorative elements on them. I often add to those. Fankly, at this point, I would be hard pressed to tell you which are hers and which are mine!


I know I could get my lettering straighter if I worked at the table instead of wrangling this large book on my lap-board in my recliner. Yeah, ergonomics.



This is the latest one:


All of the colored elements on this one are mine. The original page had only the branches up the sides.

I do feel like I am progressing. A friend pointed out that the phrases in the book samples are all 'me, me, me' and she is going to use scriptures for her finished pages.

I think that is a grand idea and I think I'm going to do the same.
