I’ve had such a hectic month being away, but I am determined to find more time for Prima!! I have been practising my lettering a LOT especially after learning so much in my Tampa workshops I was excited to add a personal touch to this journal 🙂 I am using this journal to jot ideas and wishes for our house which we have recently moved in to. Clippings, pamphlets, just whatever takes my fancy. In the small house I built on the front, I doodled the house front and added a little colour. I used something blue, cartographer and plenty of my resins! The flowers were a mix and match from my stash.. forever growing I tell you!!
Impatiently awaiting the arrival of Joanne’s book, I made an effort to complete the cover lol. I used Copic Markers to colour and my Microns for most of the outline. Hurry postman!
So, in a nutshell, I have been a “doodler” ALL my life.. on anything and everything! Flowers, shapes, leaves, stars and everything in between. I have always had a passion for lettering and I even found evidence of this through all my school workbooks.. I have really started to enjoy art journalling lately, so naturally I have been interested to develop my skills in this area. I have taken myself to Joanne Sharpe and one of her awesome online classes “Letter Love” I adore her work and if you get a chance, pop onto her blog here: http://joannezsharpe.blogspot.com.au
I will try and share my work here as I go as I would really love to record this process! Hopefully I will see improvements over the duration of the course. There are 29 lessons which target different skills! Geeez!!
