Yep, I skipped another week last week. Consider it another chance to catch up on past challenges, or do your own thing. I was traveling — I was in Salt Lake City for Quilt Market, which was a whirlwind of fun. And now that I’m back home, I’m still tired but back at it anyway.
Here’s my feeble attempts at hand lettering:
When I watch videos of others hand lettering, they make it look easy, but it doesn’t come that easy to me. For one thing, I’m always in a hurry. I need to learn to slow down and take my time to get the effects and the results I want.
So we’re on to the next challenge, which is:
An old newspaper, magazine pages, a paper bag, a coffee filter, a large leaf, a piece of wood, you get the idea. Something you normally wouldn’t think of drawing on — pick that and make a drawing!
I’m really interested in seeing what base you choose, so be sure and let me know what you do with this one!
As an aside, I’m also thinking about starting this: Index Card a Day Challenge.
It sounds inspiring and interesting, and I want to try it, so I thought I’d mention it here in case it sounds like something you’d like to do, too.
