The World is Full of Happy People Inspiration
Another beautiful week starting.
Let’s make this a Happy week!
So what am I up to this week?
Well, I am determined to learn how to make artistic hand lettering. Part of my sign making I have used is lettering, but I printed them out with software. Fancy fonts to produce the wording on the signs was usually a bit laborious to me, then I read a post on hand lettering that said to consider it art, which made it more appealing. (and a rather DUH moment)
Plus I am learning to draw. (I started to say “attempt” to learn to draw but that almost sounds defeatist so I changed it)
I can paint all sorts of designs, flowers, fruits and veggies all day long but I can’t draw to save my life! So I am changing that.
I am liking some of the adult coloring pages I have seen and since I love inspirational quotes I would like to produce some with quotes included.
Having a project to force me to draw will help me stick with the plan of learning it.
Here is my first attempt in progress…
With each one a stick to a theme.
I would put the quote in the center in artistic fonts. After getting this far I decided instead of vines coming down from the sunflowers I would prefer wheat or corn stalks coming up beside the pumpkins to keep with the Fall theme.
The bird has to go, he is not doing anything for me. I was trying a primitive style bird, he may fit in on future pages but not here.
What quote you would put here???
I don’t want it too busy, some of the coloring pages make my eyes spin, they are just so, so busy but some really enjoy that and that is great for them but to me they are not calming, which these coloring pages are supposed to be.
In case you were wondering my learning to draw and sketch won’t take place of my painting tutorials, in fact I will most likely show how you can paint these as well as just color with pens or whatever you prefer as a coloring tool, just to make it more fun.
This week I am also going to show you what I am doing with this…I tested this over the summer and it works great!
Lots of folks really enjoyed my little painting shelf DIY. It was so quick and easy and made organizing my paints a snap!
I will continue with the studio cottage organization and refurb. I am talking my husband into putting in a bay window for me and maybe a little wood-stove for cozy heat. That is on the long range plan so for now I will work on what I can accomplish but it is fun to dream about.
I wish you a productive and fun week! I know mine will be.
Happy Week to you!
