Hooray For Hosea
Topic: Bible Journaling

On we go with lettering lessons every week. This week we are up to Hosea with these lessons:

HOSEA: Day #1 – Overstated Serifs – Introduction

The base shapes for this new lettering style come from the Basic Oval Print. From there, double lines have been added and the serifs are hugely overstated.

This sample uses a letter height of 5 units with an x-height of 3 units. Other options will be explored as we progress through the week.

 


 

 

 

HOSEA: Day #2 – Overstated Serifs – Alphabet

This page of letters was done without the dot-grid paper. This will help you get a feel for the letter relationships which is much more important than having exact measurements. For example, you may wish to have the double lines wider or thinner, you may want the actual letters wider or thinner, or you may want the x-height to be higher or lower. Make it your own! You can write up the alphabet with any of these options knowing that you can change to a different formula when you use it in a project. Color is optional at this stage.

 


 

 

 

HOSEA: Day #3 – Overstated Serifs – Options

Today we are going to incorporate some of the changes we discussed yesterday. So write out the words that describe the options being demonstrated.

This is a great font to use with simple pattern doodles, to experiment with color, to toss about off the baseline and to mix cases. You can also experiment here with those size variations. If you think of more options, write them out and give it a try.

 


 

 

 

HOSEA: Day #4 – Overstated Serifs – Scripture Work

Use one or more of your variations (or the original alphabet) to write up a scripture from Hosea. I am loving those curls on the descenders of the y and g, the tails of the R and the arms of the f and r.

Don’t forget to use capitals on all of the initial letters of the words. It adds continuity and gives you more practice on the upper-case.

 


 

 

 

HOSEA: Day #5 – Overstated Serifs – In Your Bible

For my bible page I varied the letter sizes slightly, tossed them off the baseline and colored them with a range of teals and blues. I combined the verse in Hosea with the lesson from the Drawing Room (raindrops).

 


And in the drawing lesson for the week, I taught them how to do the raindrops!
