On The Right Path
Topic: Bible Journaling

I put up a new lettering lesson this last week.

This was a strange little novelty print that has the sort of look of a maze. So I named it PATH and that became the focus of the scriptures chosen to work with. Here are the lessons:

PATH FONT - DAY 1 – INTRODUCTION

This week we are going to do a novelty print that, to me, is reminiscent of a maze. So, we are going to use it for the word PATH.

The scale of this is shown in the red guides on the left side. The x-height is 1/2 of the full letter height and the descender is an equal amount. In this example, the scale is 3 units for the ascender, 1 1/2 for the x-height and 1 1/2 for the descender. The path of double lines is 1 unit.

The thing to watch for in forming the letters of this font is consistency in the spacing of the double line tracks. They can be ‘slightly’ narrower on the lower-case than the upper- but within each case they should remain consistent. In my experience, this is harder on the curves, but you’ll get it with practice.

 

PATH FONT - DAY 2 - ALPHABET

I used the same scale for this alphabet as on the example yesterday.

Some of these letter forms are just so much fun! Some of them look almost like shadow letters and some look a little 3D. This font is unlike any other we have done.

As we studied yesterday, work on keeping the spacings within the letters consistent.

 

 

PATH FONT - DAY 3 – CROSSWORD

I used all caps to create a crossword of synonyms for ‘PATH’. The benefit to all caps is that the space taken up by each letter (baseline, height and width) is constant which is needed for a crossword.

You can choose to a different activity but I suggest using all caps, too, so you can get a lot of practice on them. When using standard text-writing layout you get less practice on the upper-case letters.

Have fun composing a project.

PATH FONT - DAY 4 – SCRIPTURE WRITING

Today we are going to write a scripture using the Path font. When writing out blocks of text like this I like to use caps on every word.

It was fun to use the footbridge from the Drawing Room to illustrate my piece. This was inspired by my recent trip to France and a visit to Monet’s Water Garden at Giverny!

What will YOU be inspired to create?

 


PATH FONT - DAY 5 – TAKE IT TO YOUR BIBLE

In your Bible, choose a verse that uses the word ‘path’ and use the new font to write it out. You can certainly combine it with other fonts if you choose.

As I am posting this, I suddenly see a typo in the word ‘straight’. I find that I can fix these little errors with a bit of Dry-line white out followed by inking the letters over the top.

I used the footbridge again for this page.

 

 

I hope you are getting some use from these lettering lessons???
