Creative Lettering, People Drawing = Busy Art Journal Pages






Welcome to another weeks full of drawings and lettering. I left out many as I really outdid myself this week. Having a daily drawing habit becomes somewhat of an obsession, as well as being a passion for me.
 

Capturing couples to collect in my journal 




Integrating lettering into journal pages in new ways ... 






Having fun with Gelly Roll pens on black paper 

(I moved these photos from iPhone to computer and they lose a lot of color resolution in the move)
imagine brightness!
 



How many different fonts can you put into one page?


The story if my new garden as a word/ story pun ... 
Creative lettering class comes to an end, however, I formed a Facebook Group for folks who
took the class so we can continue on our own and encourage each other.
 

 
I discovered that gel pens are water soluble and turned to paint with a flick of my water brush!
 
I've drawn these women numerous times


Finding fun with numerous scripts ... 


New pens are fun too! 




Where to put the words? 


I love gel pens on black 

Love as word pun too! 

 
Thanks for stopping by. I appreciate your visits and comments as they encourage me to draw on!
Wishing you a Creative Week Ahead!

  3. I do understand your passion and habit but don't you have to do any housework like cooking, cleaning etc.? :) sigh. :) I'd love to draw, paint all days long but I have always 'other things to do'. How do you do it?
    Happy PPF!

    1. Minimal housework! I do still work 2-3 part days a week as a licensed MFT therapist, I love cooking, especially now that I am growing vegetables and herbs in my own garden, but I also have developed the habit of doing urban sketching at coffee cafes several mornings a week, and curling up in my recliner at night with my art pad to draw and create! So to answer your question, yes, one can do it all!!!

  13. Oh I am enjoying all the different fonts and new styles in your repertoire! Love the apple a day and the Lynn creates. Smoking laws are so strict in Vancouver and parts of B.C. No smoking on beaches, too close to buildings and none at bus stops. That's a good thing!! Sketchbook school has really broadened your horizons...many fun new pieces...Love it all! Keep inspiring Lynn!!

    Hugs Giggles

  17. Hi Lynn! Yesterday my next door neighbor was over and telling me how she use to sketch every where she went and just gave up her creativity. I told her about you and all your wonderful sketches. I think you inspired her to grab some paper and a pencil and start up sketching again.

    I honestly believed everything I said about you. Hopefully she will have some time tomorrow to come over and see this post. I like all the "conversations/thoughts" going on with your people. It is always a treat to read your PPF posts. Have a wonderful week! Hugs, Rasz
