I've been busily working on a new project - ALAW (a letter a week). This project is a year long project at the end of which I'll have created two alphabets. The "rules" are simple: any medium, any style, size must be 7cm (3") square and after the letters have been created, they should be presentation ready in some form - a book, framed, hanging by wire, etc. One of the two alphabets must follow the theme "dotty". My subconscious has been working overtime to come up with how I wanted to create them, what style/shape of letters and ultimately how to present it.... Here's my first 4 letters for each week in January.
Obviously, I've decided to do my 'dotty' alpha first. I created dots of spattered watercolor as the background and the colors will progress through the color wheel three times. The tiles will also be connected with the ribbon of circles on black (more dots) and then filled in with zentangle patterns. I figured this way I'm practicing my lettering as well as my tangles!
