Letter Love

I said I was decreasing  the number of online workshops this year but I find myself currently enrolled in three workshops.  The latest one is “Letter Love.”  I love this class! Read about it over at Whimspirations by Joanne Sharpe.  It is Joanne’s first online class and she’s doing a tremendous job!  I have been using my Letraset Aqua Markers…love them! I have three colors and plan to order some more.  Joanne loves Copic Sketch markers.  I have two black ones.  Maybe, I’ll order some other colors, a few at a time.  I also have one Tombow Marker and it is a nice dual tip marker as are the Letraset Aqua Markers.   The Identi-Pen by Sakura is another great pen that has permanent ink.  I will also use my Crayola Markers because the colors are bright and they are inexpensive…that’s a plus!  We are using a composition book for a practice book.  The first photo shows the front cover of my composition book.  The next one is a practice page I worked on this morning.  I noticed I left out the letter “r” in the word inspiration while I was cropping the photo 🙂  The last photo is a page that will go in my journal…I was playing around with one of my carved stamps and some fabric scraps.

    Wonderfully done, Mary!
    And I never would have noticed that ‘r’ if you hadn’t pointed it out…
    even with spell-check letters usually refuse to be my friend!

    I love those whimsy grids, don’t you? I feel like they could be an entire class in themselves. I “discovered” the Identipen through this class…I think it’s my favorite black pen now!

    I keep hearing about this class so I am going to have to do it eventually. Where did you find the Aqua Markers. I saw Jane Davenport use them so they are on my list. My usual supplier dick blick doesn’t carry them so I would love to know where you are getting them.

    I don’t know why I couldn’t find them on Dick Blick before. Silly me, they are now on my wish list. I am taking Jane Davenports Supplies Me course, she covers colored pencil, watercolors, markers and pastels. It is fun so far.

    Love your work! You are very talented! I particularly enjoy the way you use color. You should teach your own online class!

    Thanks for there Jew of Joanne’s class. I was wondering whether to take it or not.

    Happy creating!
