Ever since I knew how it was called, I’ve loved lettering. I don’t know if this classifies as actual lettering or not, but I love the aesthetic of a soft background with a message on top, even if it’s hard for me to make those (I’m a lover of bright colors).
(Maybe the colors aren’t as soft as they should be for optimal effect, but I can’t help myself -I’m a work in progress). Here the word is formed with the absence of water (and paint). It was a little harder than expected, keep the water off where the word would be, while also maintaining a wet background so I could make a “dreamier” effect when applying the colors.
This next one was something I wanted to do for quite a while. I used embossing, though the embossing powder was a little rougher-looking and a little too yellow for my taste (it’s supposed to be colorless), so I tweaked the letters a little in photoshop, so they looked more white, as it was originally envisioned. Needless to say, it was a lot more freeing where the coloring was concerned since I didn’t have to worry about the water so much, but ironically, it may not look as free as the previous one. (It may be just me).
I’m quite fond of the color palette of both pieces, but this one is my favorite.
Do you have a favorite word? One of mine is daydream.
