lettering || train

Monday, July 13, 2015



I try many things..crocheting, beading, drawing, ect. Well, here I am trying something new. Lettering. It's SO


awesome. And SUPER fun. :D I've been experimenting more, with different pens, colors, ect. 
It's just a really fun thing to play around with. If your interested, (or already am lettering) I suggest heading over to skgfun.com and looking at her latest video about lettering..she also made an awesome prompt list!

Life is busy. I've been trying to hang on with math, ugh. That horrid word. And lettering, and trying to read like nuts for summer reading. lol. We went out a while ago..it was super fun. We rode on a train, an old car from 1914, and saw a real train, among other things. :)

How is life? Busy? Or perhaps..your bored to death. (that would never happen to me in a lifetime.) If so, I suggest...finding the oldest book on your shelf, closing your eyes and place your finger on a random spot in the book. Write a poem/prompt about it, draw/paint the letter or find something crafty to do.

Are you random?
Do you like lettering?

  4. I love lettering! I'm not really that good at it (I haven't taken time to improve it) but I love it! You should invest and get some calligraphy pens! My grandparents got me some and I loooove them! I used them for making cards, mostly. =) Your pictures are amazing, great job! Your photography has really started to shine, you are really good at it! Keep it up! =) My favorite one is the duck. ;)

    Love ya!

    1. It's a really fun way to be creative. :D I'm doing a daily prompt lettering, so it's super fun. haha, my handwriting is pretty bad..but I like lettering..perhaps it's because I take more time on it. ;)

  6. The first picture is my favorite but they are all so beautiful! Lettering sounds like a lot of fun. I've never tried it but it sounds like just the kind of thing I would enjoy.

    My summer hasn't been too busy. I've been working my normal job and taking a break from teaching piano lessons which has been nice. I've also been trying to get in some extra exercising here and there...but that's been a less-than successful endeavor so far.

    Glad to hear you're having a good summer even if it is a bit busy!

    2. I do enjoy doing lettering sometimes, but I don't do it a lot. I like to do "fake calligraphy" ;) where I do cursive and then bold or fill in all the down strokes. It does look really neat and is fun to be creative with! :)

    3. It's a fun thing to do to relax..I like doing things like that. :) I do that too, it's super fun! I like the more playful texts as well. I like simple and clean. Oh yes, it's so fun to be creative! :D

  10. I have been thinking about trying lettering sometime:)
    I am always busy lol! At church they were saying that on average most teenagers have 50 hours left over a week that they dont really do anything, i was so confused. Like i have to do three things at once 24/7 to have enough time to do everything. XD

  13. Your summer seems like it's going so well! I'm random, at times, especially when it comes to laughter. Everyone usually thinks I'm serious but then, five seconds later, I start to spontaneously laugh at nothing. :P I have tried lettering before, but I haven't had time time or materials to do so, especially since I'm recovering from vacation in the Philippines. ^.^

    xoxo Morning

    1. Yes! I only wish it would never end.. :P lol. yes, I know what you mean.. *sigh* I'm usually very quiet, I'm an observer..I like to stick a few witty things in there. lol!

      You can use normal paper and a normal ink pen (not ball point!) I have Paper Mate Flair pens that I got two black ones for $2. Also, you can get separately colored sharpies for $1. The notebook that I got was $3. It really isn't that expensive.. :) lol. Recovering?!
