Handlettered Confirmation Card

Next month, my nephew will be going through the Sacrament of Confirmation.  I wanted to make him a card that reflects the importance of this Sacrament in his life.

I love the quote from St. Catherine of Siena and I found it very fitting for this card and for the occasion.

Lettering – Lowercase ‘a’

I finally was able to start my lettering series!

When I was teaching myself how hand letter and to write in a modern calligraphy style, I studied many videos that would show pen movements and hand placements.

I created this series, doing one letter at a time, using close up shots and a thorough explanation of each movement to help aspiring lettering artists learn the basic technique and eventually get comfortable enough to incorporate their own style.

Please share this video with all your crafty friends and don’t forget to subscribe so you don’t miss out on the entire lettering series!

I love this quote.  I’ve dreamed of having an outlet to express some creativity and the ability to share it with people.  This blog, this etsy shop, this Youtube channel are all manifestations of this dream.

So, yes.  This quote speaks to me.

This piece is hand painted.  I did the watercolor wash of blue.  I hand lettered the quote on the paper.  This piece is completely  handmade.

The size of this piece is 5 x  7 and looks great in a frame set on a desk or on a wall.
