A decorated font - structured italic
I am still having great fun playing with decorated letters and numbers!
This one is an actual font, called structured italic, which I drew on a grid in pencil, inked in a black Faber Castell artist pen then erased all the pencil marks.
I found the font in a calligraphy book and I think it looks really curvaceous!
For the colour I used Sakura pens, acrylic paint, Marvy Uchida liquid applique, and Faber Castell pens in black, sepia and sanguine.
I shall scan it in and use it in various sizes in my journalling- watch this space! I think it will be interesting to see the effect of using an actual font instead of the random letters I used before... I will see which I like best!
