Bar lettering...

I am playing along with Sunday's with Sandee at Frosted designs. Every third one of her video's Sandee does a new lettering style, last time it was Track lettering this time we have some Bar lettering. I love youtube instructional video's. You can pause, rewind and watch it over a couple of times.. So I had the pencil and paper out at the computer after about a minute of watching Sandee. I had my alphabet done and had not watched the end.. I thought it was the best video, so easy to follow.. So if you want to learn too, pop over and take a peek.  Add some block lettering to your next card or scrapbook page... 

So first I practiced all the alphabet on some graph paper.. Then I picked my quote that I wanted to use and practiced that.. 

Then I got out my new journal for lettering styles, I wanted to keep them all in the one so that I have them for reference.. Thought that was the perfect quote for the start of a new journal.. I doodled some flowers and made a spot in the middle to pop my quote. I used Dylusion inks to colour and had to pop some dangles and the black and white border.. This was such fun and after the practice and doing this with pencil first, I found that the lettering was a lot easier.. 

Going to link this up with 
Balzer designs Art journal every day.

Have a great day 
Sandy :)
