Pen To Paper - Lowercase A - Maritza Lisa

Happy 2015!! As I look back on 2014, I realize that I did not spend nearly enough time practicing my hand lettering. This year, I want that to change. To hold myself to this promise, I will share my letters with you (they may be a little rough, let me warn you). So, today is pen to paper – lowercase A. I’ve also included the .studio3 file in case you would like to use it.


The What

The How

1. I went with the faux approach using my trusty Sharpie (black ink) and a gridded page

2. Then I took a picture with my iPhone and sent it to my computer

3. I opened the image in Silhouette Studio, and traced it

4. I filled the trace shape with color and added a border (rounded rectangle) around it

5. After grouping and rotating it by 180 degrees (set to No Cut), I merged my envelope shape into my document. I placed the monogram onto the envelope, then sent to Print and Cut using cardstock or copy paper settings
