This week at Studio 13 I taught the 5th class in the monthly art journal series. This session was all about lettering tricks and tips to use in the art journal. We talked about stamps and stencils….but mainly focused on transforming our own handwriting into something that we can feel okay with on our pages.
I also shared examples from my own projects:
Then we made a simple background on our page primed with gesso, using spray inks and paints with stencils:
And those served as a background for our real project: Lettering on our page!
And of course, what I especially like are the happy faces at the end!
NEXT MONTH: Making a travel journal, and packing supplies to go!
