Words to Live By Creative hand-lettering, coloring, and inspirations
Words to Live By is a unique combination of inspirational quotes, hand-lettering tips and techniques, and fun coloring pages. With easy step-by-step lessons in the art of hand lettering and illustration, artists of any age can learn to create beautiful works of letter art. Also included are 24 inspirational perforated coloring pages that can be personalized and displayed, framed, or given as gifts.
This book is like a primer, an intro to lettering for kids. The first few pages explain the difference between serif and sans-serif letters, the parts of a letter (ie: ascender & descender), and tips to thicken the letters to give them a faux calligraphy appearance. Next are the projects: write on a paint chip add string and call it a bookmark; use a Sharpie to write on a coffee mug; write on a rock and use it as a paperweight; etc. The last third of the book is single-sided coloring pages, each with a pretty backside that reminds me of scrapbook paper.
Words to Live By has a lot of great ideas and the tear outs at the back are perfect for that quick make-n-take when you are on limited time.
It’s so pretty and filled with great tutorials, tips and ideas and even free gifts! If you love lettering and quotes, this is definitely a great addition to your library.
I just adore this book! It is definitely full of ideas and inspiration to spark your creative mind! There are fun projects to try and the 30 day challenges help keep the creative juices flowing! This book would definitely be great to go through with kids of all ages.
The authors tips and positive messages are inspiring. The quality of the book and the thick pages are way above my expectations.
So many clever, fun ideas AND inspirational coloring pages! It comes with easy to follow step by step instructions and helpful tips for both hand lettering practice and projects!
