Lisa Engelbrecht author of Modern Calligraphy and Hand Lettering: A Mark-Making Workbook for Crafters, Cardmakers, and Journal Artists shared her hand lettering magic with so many visitors to the Craftside Craft Zone that she ran out of paper! A few people loved her work so much she was using the back side of scraps of paper so they wouldn't leave empty handed!
Since we are in Los Angeles, a very diverse city, when you host a Craft Zone you get visitors that range from Playboy Bunny and Dancing with the Stars beauty Kelly Monaco and her cute as a button daughter to hunky hip hop dudes! Jeannine Stein had so much fun she spent the entire day making fun 3-D explosion books with guests with no breaks! She had a tiny handful of the kits left after the show which she graciously gave to me to include in upcoming giveaways! So stay tuned Craftside readers and lovers of book making!
Thanks to all who came by and crafted with us! See you at the next show.
More about Lisa Engelbrecht's book:
From brides who want to address their wedding invitations to do-it-yourselfers who want to prepare certificates or make a family tree, and for art journalers and scrapbookers who like creative text in their works, there are so many fun places for calligraphy. This new-in-paperback book introduces 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 Calligraphy and Hand Lettering 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 break down each letterform, taking the reader through each stroke and a large collection of gallery images provides further inspiration for how to use creative lettering in artwork.
Lisa Engelbrecht (Long Beach, CA) 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.
