When I was first watching Joanne's lesson 18 video, I was laughing...yup Joanne, I was one of the ones you were threatening to send to the principal's office. LOL However, seeing as I seldom keep my fingers out of the paint when I do play with acrylics, I thought why not do lettering with my fingers. And it was fun. I like the thick rich texture I could achieve.
In another couple of lessons, we were exploring different mark making tools. I used the little Gum dental soft picks as my 'pen' for the page on the left. I just dipped it into the India ink as needed while I wrote. It like the control I had with it so that I could write fairly easily while still getting a looser looking text that with a regular pen.
The page on the right was done using the dropper in the India ink bottle. That was a bit harder to write with, but again it gives an interesting, loose text.
Judging by the watercolour background of the second page, I think I'm finally beginning to get a better feel for leaving some white space as I paint. I'll need to keep working on that...
