Lesson 8 of Letter Love has been fun...like every other lesson on the course :-)
This time it's another kind of handmade grid - creating your own lines out of different media to write over
My first was lines pulled across the page with Copic markers - different colours and different width markers
Then written over (again with copics) to mix up colours and try out lettering styles
My second was with my lovely caran d'ache neocolor crayons and new water brushes.
Have to say that although I hesitated about buying these for some time, thinking I could do just as well with a brush and container of water, these earn their keep in their portability for making art whenever you may be away from home. Also a fabulous idea for kids cos they don't tip the water container over! Love having the 3 brush sizes too - good value pack.
This is the page with just the watercolour lines :
The colours made me think of summer, and since we are nearing the end of our NZ summer, I decided to capture some of the things I love about this wonderful season. Used a red zig pen, a purple copic, and one of my fav sakura glaze pens.
I highly recommend this course...you can start any time and can work at your own pace - there is a lesson posted to a class blog every day in February. Given that I have only just finished Lesson 8 you have lots of time to join in...and I figure I am just extending the pleasure....you never want a good book end do you?!
I do have some other projects in progress which I hope to share in a few days.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone
