I have signed up for the month long lettering class called Letter Love 101 by Joanne Sharpe and today's assignment was to prepare a book for the class. I bought 2 Composition books from Office Depot for a couple bucks and decorated them with some card stock, fabric and zebra print duct tape. Then we were asked to go through the book and glue 2 pages together until the book was full. I messed up a couple of times and ended up with three pages glued together so I guess I can save those pages for really intense creations. There is still lots of room on the book covers for more doodling but I want to keep working on them during the month. It will be interesting to compare the pictures then and now!
I'm pretty pumped about this class. My hand writing has never been my strong suit so I have always shied away from anything that required me to do any lettering, well, unless I had lots and lots of time, a ruler, pencil and 3 or 4 erasers. So this class will really be pushing me out of my comfort zone but I think, well hope, that all the line weaving and tangle patterns that I have been doing the past 6 months will help me with control over the pens, pencils, Copics, Sharpies, Tombows, white out pens, watercolor paint,. The supply list is pretty long. Lucky I have lots of Art supplies!!
