Isn’t it great that there are a lot of things to give time for and try in the mixed media world. At the moment, I am trying my luck with brush lettering. Months ago I have bought a calligraphy ink at Daiso and never have used it for writing. Instead I have used it as a coloring material in some of my journal pages. Today, I promised myself to use the ink for its real purpose. After watching some brush lettering tutorial videos on you tube, I got my materials and tried my best for some magic.
Since I am heavy handed, it was very easy to do the down strokes of the alphabet but it was difficult to do the up strokes as it required a light touch. To make my first day of practice easy and enjoyable, I practiced writing my name and the names of my siblings and their family.
Not bad for a first day. 🙂
I still have a long way to go and a lot to learn. But today was a good day to learn something new. I enjoyed every stroke and every word that I practiced. I aim to improve my own handwriting using the water brush and hope to learn a few tricks to make it more colorful. And with confidence, I could incorporate it in my mixed media pages.
