Looking Back: Summer

Hello everyone!

I know it turned to Fall (yay!) 5 days ago, I thought I would do a look back on Summer!

The first thing I posted this summer was my chalk-painted piano transformation post, where, well, I transformed my piano by chalk paint! I really like how it turned out! It still looks good; I really like using chalk paint.

I made a lot of pillow forts, especially when it was raining, which was a lot of summer, so I made a short post showing one of my forts that I made with a friend.

I wrote a long story about our one-year moving journey that was filled with lots of Storage Units, Driving back and forth, and searching for new houses.

I did (and learned) a lot of Brush Lettering over the summer, and it is one of my favorite things to do! I created a page for it, and i’m attempting to do a tutorial about each letter

And, last of all, I did my Happy Birthday, Junebugblog! post. My blog celebrated it’s 1st birthday!

Thank you so much for reading!

Happy Fall, All!

Brush Lettering: A

Just a heads up, all of the Brush Lettering things I post will be on my brush lettering page(:

Hey everyone!

How are you?

Today I will be showing how to Brush Letter “A”

I will be doing tutorials from A-Z. I hope you enjoy!

To start, practice warm-ups (here) and write with the pen parallel to the paper. Pleas don’t hold the pen on the point! It will damage your Brush Pen. (fray it)

Once you’ve done your hand warm-ups and have practiced, you’re ready to go!

The “a” is fairly easy. It consists of and “O” with a tail. (as shown) *Remember: hold pen parallel!* I like to practice a a lot, because it helps prepare for harder letters.

Easy, right?

It might take a few tries before you get it, but you will!

                                   BLOCK

Yay! I love block letters(:

Do these again.

The Block letter “A” is, as I think of it, an upside down “U”. I usually put my bar in the lower part, but you could do it high, low, or middle!

Pretty easy. Easy than the script “A”, I think.

And again, “If at first you don’t succeed, try, try again!” Or, just try again.😄

Thank you for reading! Happy lettering!

Bye!
