Combining My Photography and Lettering


I took this photo last fall at Wasaga Beach.  I loved the simplicity of the single piece of grass with the lake in the background and I was experimenting with depth of field.

Yesterday, while playing around with my pens I decided to print a copy and do some lettering right on the photograph so that I could use my own hand lettering to add a message instead of adding text in Photoshop.  I was pleasantly surprised by how well the pens work on the photo paper.

The black was done with a Copic Multiliner.  I used a Sakura Gelly Roll for the highlights, and finally put in some shading with a grey Copic Ciao.

  1. Love your photo and your quote and am amazed that your pens work on photo paper. Is it gloss or satin?
    Stay inspired!

    1. Thanks Michelle. The paper is Costco's glossy photo paper and yes, the pens worked fine.

    1. Thanks Janet. It is a nice place to go and just walk. In fact, I especially like it on quiet Spring or Fall days when it's really quiet.
