Better Days

It’s always a better day when I paint. 

Seriously, I tried doing something I’m not good at. I was trying too hard. Then I sat on a Friday night and repainted.  

Oh goodness…

much better

I did include hand lettering on my to-do list.

Friday Fun Day!

Why was I trying to hand letter within a heart? Clearly I’m not good at it. I love sporadically writing letters. 

I do have a big to-do list. 

Tonight I’ll start with repainting my Alma Libre. Oh and ordering some more paint.

Fall Hand Lettering Challenge-Day1

The first part of any hand lettering project is to figure out what you want to say. Then you figure out how you are going to say it. I love this because the lettering does a great job of conveying the experience of being on this ride. Note the sightly slanted letters and the sharp pointed detail from each letter. The white shadowing plays on this theme as well. It is always great to look at how everything comes together and little details can really make a piece come to life! 0920150828[1]
