Art, Coloring, and doodle books seem to be all the rage right now. I love drawing, coloring, and all sorts of forms of art so this recent boom has been a thrilling thing to see. Aside from doodling and coloring I adore the books that push one to physically create something completely new. Art is so wonderful because often one will create something they never knew that they could. For instance I tried out watercolor early this year and had no idea how much I would enjoy it! I just stared at a blank canvas and went with whatever came to my mind. The results weren’t what I was expecting in the sense that I thought I would be rubbish but something far better.
In light of all the talk of art, I recently came across The Botanical Hand-Lettering Workbook. This book directs one in how to go about creating whimsical & decorative styles and scripts. These skills can used in card making, sign creating, logos, or if you want to add a bit of fanciness to any other type of art you seek to create.
I like this book because the ways in how to go about creating such designs is broken down into easy step by step instructions. Any beginner likely wouldn’t be intimidated to start creating. I like turning to this book in my free time set aside for creating. It’s a relaxing way to spend my time and very easy to do. Sections are broken up so you can pick and choose wherever you’d like to begin. There is plenty of space left for you to draw in the book if you want. I am learning how to draw letters, flowers, leaves, and so on and then putting it all together! This book has been a wonderful inspiration and guide!
What Inspired “The Botanical Hand-Lettering Workbook”?
My background as an educator and as an artist lend itself to creating work that combines both of my passions. Obviously, hand-lettering has been really popular the last couple years, so with so many books out on the subject this one had to be a bit more specific or different in a major way. Botanicals are what I enjoy creating the most, so it made sense for flowers to intertwine with my lettering.
