I am gathering up ideas and things for Lollapalooza Three, "Big Grig Journal" online class. In this class it is important to find some way to write one big word which will usually be the theme of that page. I use CalligraFun lettering most of the time but I use stamps too (hopefully the Calligraphy Police won't come get me!). Being a calligrapher I absolutely love all types of hand lettering and one of my favorite styles is Neuland---which brings me back to the stamps. In Lollapalooza Two and Three I have included a video of how to carve this alphabet into stamps to use in our journals. I give you the exempler of letterforms and show you how to carve them.
The thought occurred to me that I could possibly make a font with it--my stamped letters that is.
And through the magic of Fontifier I did it!
It's really quite simple and it only costs $9.
In fact I have several other Fontifier fonts in other calligraphic hands that I have pinned.
It's all installed on my computer and everything---wow. Technology is amazing--!
Yes, I am doing a happy dance!!
Here are two more examples of my new font.
