Topic: Bible Journaling
This week, in the Lettering Lodge, we worked with a modern faux-brush script and focused on the word 'great'.
That upper-case G was a real bear for me to get the hang of! You can easily see this from the initial sketches of the word I did on Monday.
As you can see, I made notes to myself on areas and methods for improvement.
I had more success with the full alphabet. This is a font presented in the book 'Hand Lettering For Relaxation' by Amy Latta.
There are some neat letter forms in this font.
On Wednesday, we practiced some of the doodles taught in the same book (circle flowers and twisted ribbons) while illustrating the lyrics of a song using the word 'great'.
I went up to a 8 x 10.5 sheet of dot grid paper rather than the little half sized sheets used the first two days.
On Thursday, I used a larger sheet of paper again and illustrated a scripture with the focus word.
I had fun decorating this one using doodle lines, colored pencil woodgrain, shading for dimension and a layout that just popped into my head when I read the scripture, John 3:30.
Friday is always the day we use the new font and focus word in our Bible.
I am pleased with how much better I am becoming at drawing hands.
Refernce for this is 1 John 3:1.
