SkillShare Class+Project Complete: Waterbrush Lettering Essentials

Three classes down, two more to go!

As part of my April Creative Challenge, I completed Waterbrush Lettering Essentials on SkillShare.

My Project

The class assignment was to create a waterbrush lettered greeting card. 

I went through my paper drawer (why yes, I do have a drawer dedicated to paper) and noticed I had a bunch of scraps leftover from my thesis project and our wedding. I decided to create mini greeting cards from these instead of one card from larger paper. This allowed me to more quickly practice the techniques from class on many cards.

Materials Used

My Finished Cards

Mini Cards

I played with two different versions of cards: one with a script and the other with a very brushy lettering style.

Here is the script card.

Here is the card with the very brushy lettering. I used the word “yay” because I only had small scraps left at this point. I really like the way that these turned out—especially the purple one in the back.

And a Birthday Card

I ended up making greeting card for this class, too. After playing around with the ink alone, I wanted to see how the watercolor worked with the ink. I used watercolor paper so that the paper wouldn’t warp as much. I don’t think the lettering on this is very good but it was fun to make and I learned something new.

If you took a class on SkillShare, what would you want to take?

Love on ya, chimes
