Joanne Sharpe's Letter Love online class is almost over (sob). She promises another lettering class in April, so we'll all be waiting as patiently as possible for that.There are at least 400 students in the class! We've created little booklets using our own patterned Bristol or watercolor paper, and patterned washi or "duck" tape. Now we're filling the pages with colorful lettering. One of the techniques Joanne showed us was to outline a word on the patterned paper we created, cut out around the connected letters, and adhere it to a contrasting background. In the image below, the original word color was the green one. I scanned it into PSE (you knew I would!) and recolored it two different ways. I'm again attempting to show it here without a background (fingers crossed).
