Loving Those Letters
Topic: Lettering

I saw a headline for a bullet journal on Pinterest and I got my brain gears working on a new lettering idea.

First, tape two pencils together. I used mechanical pencils and clear tape.


This will allow you to draw guidelines that are consistently and evenly spaced.

Using this new tool, draw double vertical lines to make bars.


The space between your bars should be 1/2 the width of a bar.


 Make horizontal guides at the top of the bars and the height of three bar widths.


Use pairs of bars as guide to form letters. Ends of single lines get triangle serif (base of A, curves of C, etc.)

Continue to form entire alphabet.

 


 Draft out a word. Use to trace onto another piece of paper in light larker, highlighter or colored pencil.

Fill in with the same medium as drawn with.

 


 Practice some 'stretched out' cursive to equal one cursive letter to each block letter size.


Pencil in cursive letters OCER block letters. Letters can be drawn first and then connecting lines done when inking.


 Ink cursive letters. Erase pencil (use care when erasing over colored pencil letters as you will remove color.

Use as  headline in your Bible and combine with other letter forms for a completed margin decoration.


If I was truly kind, I would redo these illustrations and that may happen at some point in the future. In the meantime, this can get you started!
