I love words…reading them, writing them, studying them. And to turn words into art? Love it!
Week 3’s lesson was taught by Joanna Sharpe and focused on using words in our artwork. I have been trying for years to get a handle on making cool word art, and I was always just a little off. Of course, I would make something, it would look amateurish and I would stop in disappointment. The truth is that I didn’t practice enough to improve. Isn’t that just the lesson?!
So, as recommended by Joanna Sharpe, I have an ongoing journal to practice my lettering. I’m still critical, but even I can see improvement the more I practice.
Our project for Week 3 was to create an image and quote using watercolor and pens. It took several attempts but here is the final project. Notice, I used my Word For The Year in my quote!
