3rd day of 21 Day Challenge

I am experimenting with paper and watercolors. I incorporate traditional decoupage. I want to try different lettering. The small sticker letters don't show up so well. I am looking for alphabet block stamps, but I have had no luck. Does anyone have ideas on writing script, or stenciling it to make it look neater? ~nita~

Yesterday's post...John's pic..he is looking encouraged. Thank you, Lord! As to the lettering...ohh, I'm no help there, I'm afraid. Your project sounds neat. Hope you find what you need.

Dear Nita,
Your journal is a journey.
It is so cool you started it now.
I found my stamps at Hobby Lobby. I bet they have a web site and you could order them over the phone.

Kath W said...

I agree, your handwriting looks perfect for this page!

Love seeing how you worked the mediums. :0)

your handwriting is so YOU, just as your journal. I would keep it.
John looked GOOD in the previous post; sent him another card this morning. I have added him to another prayer chain I am on. Praising God for John's good spirits.
PS, look on ebay for some stamps; I recently purchased some alphabet stamps reasonably. And try a Joann's or the walmart (I despise that store). You can sometimes find stamps with sayings on them as well as alphabets.

Nita, I like the way your hadnwriting looks just the way it is. I think everyone is critical of their handwriting. I think the journal looks much more personal this way.
