Some Lettering Fun!

If you have kids,
or know of kids,
or you are kid-like in spirit,
then this lettering project is for you.
You can either draw a letter in your name
or make a random design.
So first draw a thick black letter in Brushes XP or similar app.
Then use a thinner brush line and make a design 
all over and off the edges of your picture.
Then open another layer and move it under the first layer
and start coloring in your designs.
your coloring will automatically fall behind the black lines.
Use warm colors for your letter and cool for the background.
These pieces show the finished piece and the second layer
with the black lines hidden.
Kind of fun to see the design that way.
I highly recommend that you add patterns and dots 
to your art to give it a finished look.

You may find this is rather addictive.
The kids were very quiet and really got into this process.
I hope you will too.
