The Art of Whimsical Lettering

Standard

I always seem to go in spurts with my blog posts….lol.  I recently signed up on another Facebook group by Joanne Sharpe, as I had pre-ordered her book called “The Art of Whimsical Lettering” a few months ago and she was offering this page for anyone who’d purchased her book and she’s going to run a series of classes on it based on the book.  Allot of the people on the page haven’t received their books yet as there was problems getting them out from the distributors (mine included), but she started out with a simple challenge for everyone this week to simply create a page with the words “JUST BE” on it and anything else you wanted to incorporate.  I used a napkin I had on my desk and simply ripped it up and adhered it to the page using my Gel medium.  I love this napkin and love how it looks on this page.  The pages in this old notebook I’ve been using for a smaller art journal are actually a golden-yellow color and I usually Gesso over them before I work on them.  This time I was looking for some added color to the page as the napkin was black and with a bit of red on the border.  I love how it turned out and am really looking forward to this group.  I seem to have gotten myself into a few groups again, but I’ve decided I’ll work on what I can and if I don’t keep up to all the challenges and lessons on each page, it’s really no big deal.  What it does give me is some choices as far as a variety of things to work on depending on how the mood is striking me that particular week.  😉

Here’s the page I created for this weeks prompt:
