Lettering

Lettering & Watercoloring – Share Handmade Kindness

Shhh. Come closer. I’ll tell you a secret. Today is Jennifer McGuire‘s birthday. Yay! As a gift, I made her a watercolor painting of her tagline, “Share Handmade Kindness.” And even better? I get to give it to her in person. We only see each other a few times a year so to be together on her actual birthday is a treat! :)

(Wondering what I used in this video? Everything is linked to multiple sources in the thumbnails at the end of this post, or in the text below. Compensated affiliate links used when possible).

As far as the process goes, I started by designing the lettering on my iPad Pro within the Procreate app. Then I printed out the design.

I taped the printed design the back of some Arches watercolor paper in order to trace the design. The lettering was traced over a light pad (so I could see the design through the paper) and with Drawing Gum and a small brush. Then I let it dry completely before moving on.

The colorful background was painted using Mijello Mission Gold watercolors and lots of water. And after it was dry, I removed the masking fluid.

Thanks for stopping by! Now go tell Jennifer happy birthday! Leave her a comment on Instagram. :)
