In my last post I mentioned Joann Fink’s Zenspirations. I really enjoyed playing around with her techniques and her take on hand lettering. What you may not know about me, is that a long time ago I used to be a hand lettering artist. Of course at the time I didn’t know that the “hand lettering artist” label even existed, I just did it. I would hand letter invitations, certificates, signs, buildings, banners and even race cars. I just loved writing fancy and manipulating letters. But that was so many years ago…and I’m so rusty..Hand lettering is not like riding a bike, if you don’t use it, you lose it. So, let’s just say I lost it, lol.. but I’ve been practicing and below is some of my efforts:
As you can probably see, my spacing is a little off but hey, I haven’t done this in like 18 years. So I’m not going to beat myself up over it.
After I finished Joann’s hearts and drew the letters I really wanted to do something cool with these. So, I decided to make these for my daughter and of course a set for myself
These are just transfers from my printer and ironed on reg. white t-shirts. I think they look pretty cool. Oooooo, if I had a screen print press I would be dangerous!
I guess I was Zenspired!
Be Well and Happy!
