In this "Look Learn & Create" video, Lisa Engelbrecht, author
of Modern Mark Making:
From Classical Calligraphy to Hip Hand-Lettering shows us how to add some sparkle and bling to our hand lettering!
A complete volume offering lettering arts techniques as well as project ideas.
Calligraphy, the art of elegant, beautiful lettering, has increased in popularity over the last several years. From brides who want to address their wedding invitations to do-it-yourselfers who want to prepare certificates or make a family tree, and even for art journalers and scrapbookers who like creative text in their works, calligraphy books and classes are hot.
This book will spark the interest of the calligraphy novice by introducing a new approach to lettering, one that combines a lively combination of traditional lettering styles, fun and scripty modern styles, and artsy street-style lettering, along with project ideas that incorporate creative lettering.
Modern Mark Making demonstrates the uses of traditional and cutting edge lettering tools, from classic calligraphy pens to bling-producing metallic foils and glue pens. It introduces a wide array of lettering styles with complete alphabets sample artworks that show an application. Fully stepped-out illustrations breakdown each letterform, taking the reader through each stroke. A large collection of gallery images that provide further inspiration for how to use creative lettering in artwork.
Lisa Engelbrecht is a lettering artist and was an instructor of calligraphy at Cerritos College in Norwalk, California, where she instituted a Certificate in Calligraphy. She teaches workshops and classes around the country specializing in lettering on fabric and alternative surfaces, experimental lettering and the creative process.
I want to encorporate some of the sparkle and gilding techniques that Lisa showed us how to do from Modern Mark Making (which if you need more click on the link below or to the right!) with the new photo altering book: Image Art Workshop. I think putting sparkle writing on photos would be kinda cool.
