Alphabet Challenge The Letter B 5 Ways
Welcome to day 50 of our daily creative practice. Day 50 feels like an important milestone for me. I hope you are enjoying our junk journaling journey as much as I am. Using a calligraphy pen, we start by holding it at a 45 degree angle and making a long, sweeping stroke. Next we apply two circular motions, connect the bottom piece, and finish with a little tail to the left. Notice the depth created on the letter from the pen.
Now we go to our casual script by making some ‘curly’ or swirl patterns with a standard pen marker. We have to create depth here by drawing dual lines and filling them in as shown. Next we make a fun collage ‘B.’ A long piece of decorative paper is set and shorter straight pieces are joined together and glued to form an ‘M’ or ‘W’ pattern, which interestingly results in a fancy ‘B.’
We follow with the brush script ‘B’ and try not to make a mess! We are trying to re-create the calligraphy ‘B’ as much as possible by again setting the brush tip at a 45 degree angle. The resulting depth or 3D effect isn’t as pronounced, but I kind of like the softness of the letter here.
Using a pencil, we first draw similarly to what we did with the pen on the second ‘B,’ but this time an hour-glass shape is drawn for the left side of the letter for something a bit different. A permanent ink pen now draws over the pencilled lines, then the pencilling is erased. Somewhat surprisingly, I think this one might actually the best of the day!
Thanks again for joining me today. Set that timer for 20 minutes, and continue with your contagious creativity as you have fun! Remember that you have the ability to create something new, unique, and special every day!
