Lettering for the Kingdom
Topic: Bible Journaling

We've finished up another week of Lettering lessons with a novelty font and the word Kingdom.

Here are the daily lessons:

KINGDOM FONT - DAY 1 – INTRODUCTION

In the novelty print we are learning this week, there is only an upper-case. But this font is truly regal. This is why we will use it for the word KINGDOM.

The letters are all based on a centrally placed diamond. It will need to remain a constant size and be at a consistent location on the centerline horizontally.

Each of the letters also has triangle-shaped serifs.

To get these letterforms just right, here is my process:

·         Use pencil to sketch in the base letter

 

  • ·         Draw the diamond
  • ·         Ink the diamond
  • ·         Ink the rest of the base letter
  • ·         Ink the serifs
  • ·         Erase the pencil

 


 

 

KINGDOM FONT - DAY 2 - ALPHABET

The art of this style is in the consistency of the diamonds in size, shape and placement. Further beauty is added with consistent size and shape of the feet. Result? Regal lettering!

I am in love with the O and the Q! I included a number set for this font, as well.

Remember the steps:

 

  • ·         Use pencil to sketch in the base letter
  • ·         Draw the diamond
  • ·         Ink the diamond
  • ·         Ink the rest of the base letter
  • ·         Ink the serifs
  • ·         Erase the pencil

 


 

 

KINGDOM FONT - DAY 3 – ANAGRAM

This week I created an anagram off the word KINGDOM using words that describe the kingdom of God.

I used color in the diamonds in the initial letters. This helps define the focus word.

Now, do you see my big boo-boo? I used the number 4 in place of the letter Y! I don’t know how I got off on this track but I managed to do it for the rest of this week’s samples! Good grief! But it doesn’t glare too much, does it?

 


 

 

KINGDOM FONT - DAY 4 – SCRIPTURE WRITING

And this page starts with that crazy ‘Y’! Oh well. Now you all know that I am susceptible to messing up, too.

I used the color in all the diamonds throughout and worked on centering all the words to make this piece of scripture a showpiece.

The scripture reference is written with a stripped-down version of the feature font - it has the diamonds left out.

Write a scripture using the new font and the word KINGDOM.

 


 

 

 

KINGDOM FONT - DAY 5 – TAKE IT TO YOUR BIBLE

This regal font was used in my Bible and the diamonds filled with gold for the majestic feeling.

Some of these letter forms that have complicated lines are harder to do when scaled down for use in the Bible. But I think this one works pretty well.

Don’t forget the steps to success:

 

  • ·         Use pencil to sketch in the base letter
  • ·         Draw the diamond
  • ·         Ink the diamond
  • ·         Ink the rest of the base letter
  • ·         Ink the serifs
  • ·         Erase the pencil


 

 

That's it for the Kingdom Font.
