Lettering 101

I'm taking Joanne Sharpe's Letter Love class and I'm totally LOVING it! I've always wanted to know how to letter like the art journalling pro's and have tried, but there was always something I just didn't get. But Joanne makes it easy and doable for everyone! Once you register for the class, it is open to you forever so there is no pressure, no timeline and you can just work at your own pace. I'm hoping by the end of the lessons I can letter just half as good as Joanne. If you are wondering how I found out about this, it was from jumping in on the Stamping Bella SCS forum! You should check it out because you never know what you might learn about there.

This is my page for lesson 5, Whimsey Grids. Joanne used pan pastels to colour her grids, but I opted for prismacolor pencils to 'qualify' for Emily's AJ Monday (although I don't think she is that fussy and you could submit anything from your art journal to qualify!)

This turned out a little busier than I had hoped, but's my first try and I'm pretty proud of it if I do say so myself! I think I'll try another one with pan pastels just to see the difference. And I'm sure it will take me less than half the time because it did take me a while to colour this in with pencils.

I think I just might go get my lettering journal out tonight and practice some more. REALLY...we all say it...JUST PRACTICE!

Your quite humble about your work. I have not seen many pieces that I have not LOVED and been inspired by, this one included.

Love it! Love it! Love it! Your pages are always the best of the bunch. I'm still playing along but I just don't get your results.
