Try It On Tuesday - Handwriting

Having to use my own handwriting on a project always fills me with trepidation (I sometimes think even signing the card ruins  it!!) but that is exactly what we are challenging you to do this fortnight at Try It On Tuesday.

Handwriting to me always shouts ‘journalling’ and I thought I would turn to my ongoing altered book/Alphabet journal (It’s been three years and I’ve still only done 7 letters). I’m aiming to finish it before I retire…..

I have a lot of DECISIONS to make at the moment and when I realised that the next letter I had to do was ‘D’ I decided this would be the theme of my piece. So out came papers, glue, paints, tissue paper, texture paste rub-ons – I had a good old play. I am none the wiser as to my decisions but I feel a little less stressed and some of those decisions don’t seem so big – well they do say art is good for the soul!

I finished my page off with a Prima doll and a quote from Ben Stein copied out in my best handwriting. So there we are, hope this has inspired you a little bit but if you want more then hop on over to Try It On Tuesday to see what the rest of the team have been up to and to link your own project. See ya there!!
