Is there a summer song that you hum and can't get out of your head? I have one that I grew up with - it's 'We're all going on a summer holiday', sung by Cliff Richard many many years ago. my inspiration of today's word art came from the lyrics of summer holiday.
Here are the materials I used:
Other: watercolor paper trimmed to 9x6 inches
Start by sketching out the lyrics with pencil on watercolor paper. You can include only a few lines or the whole of your favorite song.
Go over the pencil lines with SB tip PITT pen in black. As I started lettering with the pen, I decided to make my letters bigger and did not want to include all the lines that I had written with pencil. Erase pencil lines.
Add any imagery you think suits the lyrics. I sketched a sun at the top and a line near the bottom as the horizon line of ocean.
Using Connector Paints, color in the sun and sea.
Add some details and outlines with Goldfaber color pencils to finish.
I hope your summer is off to a great start and that you'll find some time to make art!
