Valentine’s Letters

I love drawing letters…especially the BIG block kind. Not sure why but I do. BUT sometimes I get bored with the same old practice.

Yes I know I need 10,000 times before I get it right, BUT doing the same old boring letters bugs me sometimes. I mean, I have all these awesome ideas bottled up in my brain. Right now the ideas have a hard time looking good on paper. What to do? YAY I have an idea! Valentine’s Day is coming up. It’s so much fun to make Valentine’s.  OOOHHH and the little mailboxes you can decorate and put your Valentine’s in. I saw one at Target the other day.  Where’s the fun in that?

I do need practice. I love the color pink and I want to paint.  So here’s the  fabulous idea. I played around and this is what happened. Looking Good. I am really liking the whole painting letters behind a texture.

After I painted these letters I just had to make cool words for them.

What about lettering for the title of my poem LIVE YOUR Love STORY. Yes I am thinking color scheme and something fun like the Live word for the title. I just started playing around with brushes till I found the one that’s right. I did!  I worked on using a crayon to write my words and then going over it with watercolor. Just not sure what I’ll do.  I will keep working. Can’t wait to add this to my diary. Note to self. Mix it up. Make it fun.If you’re bored you’re doing it wrong.
