Maz played with M-shapes and wrote down words beginning with M. She thought about M's as boat sails, not surprising since she's a sailor.
... and embroidered the letter M on cloth.
Finally, she drew various M shapes with pen.
Helen worked with the letter H. Like Maz, she began with words for inspiration. The nouns are red, the proper nouns are black and the green ones are words that begin and end in H. She made an H with things she likes, birds and cats.
Then she began making H's from geometric shapes...
Jan wanted to see what patterns she could make by repeating letters.
Tricia was also interested in what patterns could be made from repeats of her letter, T.
Nola began by making letters with a calligraphy pen. She didn't have any inks so she used Dynaflow, which behaved very differently from calligraphy inks. The she added highlights with metallic pens and watercolour crayon.
This A was created using the template. The background is a mixture of media, with a top layer of metallic oil pastels, which was burnished. The letter is water colour pencil and fine drawing pen.
This letter A is from the template. It's like an illuminated letter, using words describing religious concepts beginning with A.Carol created an illuminated letter too.
She also used the letters of Fibre to experiment with styles of lettering.
Our next journal theme is Houses. Maz supplied some inspirational pictures of very modern artworks of houses to get us going. More next month...
