inspiration monday


not too long ago, i confessed my love affair with letterfoms ......and i've since learned through your comments that many of you are enamored with these 26 little alpha-sweeties, too!  so, here are some great links to help create your own letter lovelies......

*my sweet friend martha lever has a fabulous online class that teaches you how to have some calligrafun with brush markers!  and if you want to learn something a bit more formal, check out her italic calligraphy class!!

* julie balzer has created a video featuring some of her favorite "lettering for your art journal" tips.

*and the fabulous teesha moore shares some great ideas for making some fun letters in your journals.....here and here!

*want to learn how to draw bubble letters?  click here!

*and if you've ever wanted to write like an architect, here's a crash course!

happy lettering!!

yes, i love letterforms to and love to buy new markers to practice. i recently got the kind that is skinny marker on one side, and big fat feathery marker on the other side. they make it look like i sorta know what i'm doing, but i do not.
i've always been drawn to beautiful lettering tho...
