It’s time to say bye… bye… bye… as this is my last learning post.
To refresh to all, I learned how to brush letter form my learning project this semester. I focused on the basics throughout the weeks, such as basic strokes, lowercase and uppercase letters. I also created a time-lapse video of me lettering and then a “how to” video on creating backgrounds for my lettering. Lastly, I began to digital lettering on my iPad, which I have greatly enjoyed! I will link all my previous posts here so you can look back on my journey:

I greatly enjoyed my learning project; however, it did come with a few challenges! These challenges were not finding the time and motivation to do my project because I often felt that I put it as my last priority on my To-Do List. This is because I felt that I needed to get work done for other classes and shouldn’t enjoy something until everything else was finished. I overcame this challenge by using my learning project as also a stress reliever and doing it when I needed a break from other school work.
I think that I will continue to letter and when I become more confident, I will be able to create signs and posters for my future classroom. I have enjoyed digital lettering more lately as I have found that I enjoy my product better when doing digital lettering. I have decided for my final project to show my learning, I am going to create a digital lettering piece of artwork. I recently moved and created a gallery wall above my bed. My favourite colour is yellow, and I love pineapples! I created this artwork to go in my gallery wall above my bed!
I hope you enjoyed following along with me as I learned something new!
