First Try at Letters...


Here is my first try at doing the "lettering" - The directions on "Lazy Gal" are great, my following them - so so...I like the "N" and the "D", the "D" was done in my head, before I looked at the web instructions, in the dark, in my car driving home from New Hampshire (no I was NOT driving), that would not be liberating but crazy...
I see mouse ears once I figure out how to piece the image. I am going to try it on paper first I think. Does anyone have any experience with making "round " shapes? should I do it like an "O" only fatter and shorter?

these are marvelous! I love that you were adventurous and made them without looking at the instructions - great S! yes, you do rounded shapes my adding a triangle into the corner. actually you D is almost mouse ear like, if it were rotated 90 degrees and a bit fatter.

thanks tonya - the "d" as a mouse ear I never thought of....guess what i will be doing tonight, can you say mouse ears...

I think your D looks fine, as does your S. I find S's to be the hardest letter to make...well, maybe W is harder-? Just keep experimenting. That's what this technique is all about.

Your letters look great! I like how your background morphs, too.
