When I’m trying to decide what kind of font I want to use for a card, I try to use word spreads to flesh out different fonts. In previous posts I’ve done a few word spreads just as images to go along with the theme of the post. But I really use them as practice for different styles that I can use for different cards.
For example, I asked one of my sorority sisters at our weekly meeting to give me her favourite quote to doodle on the chalkboard. It took me about a half hour to come up with the finished product. I still wasn’t quite happy with it at the end, but it wasn’t too bad for using I think the smallest piece of chalk ever.
The best part about chalk drawings is that it’s super easy to erase! So whenever I make an oops, it gets wiped away no problem, unlike when I’m working with permanent pens.
This is a glimpse into the madness that is my creative process. I doodle and scribble until something legible comes out of the mess ;).
