Summer is half-way through, and last week we celebrated our half-way mark through the awesome ICAD summer project. Before I post more of my completed index card journal pages, I thought you might enjoy a condensed overview of my June cards.

Lettering

Journal Page
November, 2009

When it comes to placing lettering on my finished journal pages, I must admit that I sometimes feel a bit apprehensive. I'm insecure about my lettering skills and am afraid about putting pen to paper in the fear that I'll muck up my page. This journal page, expressing my lettering fears, was created almost two years ago!

My super talented friend, Michelle (Lost Coast Post), has posted an awesome 5-part lettering tutorial on her blog. Her series began on July 13th and concluded on Friday, July 22. (Click here to read the first tutorial.) Michelle's entire series is amazing, but I particularly enjoyed #2 and #5. If you'd like to learn more about lettering, it's well worth the time to stop by. Please tell her that I sent you!!!
 
Wishing you a day fearless day!

I actually thought the music you chose to go along with the cards was perfect-very upbeat. I checked into Michelle's blog and became a follower. She gives such good advice on lettering. Thanks for sharing this.

Well, ain't you something! I've set the usual photos to music but I love, love, LOVE your artwork set to music. Your artwork always has a soul and life but set to music it really...well... SINGS!!

Fearless lettering... I love that! I love letters myself and I am not afraid of it, but I will certainly check out the link. I admire you for making all the index cards... I still have trouble with the size somehow but there's another one 'on the go' (I keep on trying and pushing myself, ha, that's me!)

sandee said...

Love, love, love the index cards! I knew I should have joined in... As for the lettering, I'm going to check out the site right now. I'm always covering my journaling with something because of my poor lettering techniques. Thanks!!!

Thank you so much Terri for making this into a slide show! What a great showcase for your talent! I love the last one - We Are All Connected!! Also love the one with the white background - said hee...then that's all I could read.
I'm off now to look at Lost Coast's lettering and ICAD since I don't really understand this - ICAD to me is Computer Assisted Design???

Love the slide show Terri! It's fantastic! And; I've always been in awe of your lettering. That is one area where I just don't have the confidence to be free with.

Love your art! xxoo

"MOI" Freubel said...

Terri, I can not imagine that you are unsure about lettering because YOUR lettering is exactly what I admire in your art.
So throw your uncertainty overboard my friend ! Or I will come over and do it for you :)
Hugs for your entertaining video !!
