Is it possible to be too inspired? I think so because I want to try it all. Trying to choose from all those options can be a process in itself. So, I've decided to work on 2 new skills: sketching and lettering.
This is all very new to me and I have so much learn and practice but I wanted to share some pages that I have made recently. This is way out of my comfort zone - sharing things as I start learning how to do them but learning is part of the process, right?
The background is Bundled Sage Distress Paint over gesso. I like to gesso pages when I use paint. I like how the paint moves. It gives me more options for different techniques. I sketched the tree using a Stabilo watersoluble pencil. Then I used a waterbrush to blend the lines and add the dots and the border around the page.
And here's a closeup...
And here's some lettering that I've been working on...
This page isn't finished yet. I thought all that blue space would be perfect for one of Dina Wakley's silhouette stencils but I haven't added it yet. Lettering reminds me of junior high and high school when we would write fancy letters in our notes. It is a great thing to do while "watching" tv.
I'm tempted to take some online lettering classes and wondering if you have any suggestions? If yes, please leave a note in the comments sharing your favorite.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a great weekend.
