Hey there guys, I’m here today to give you a quick tutorial on creating some butcher paper art. I have had many comment and ask how I do the lettering and I thought I would break it down a bit. It really is easier than you think. If you feel really unsure, practice on some scrap paper, or use a chalkboard and create this same art on that.
Here is a quick peek at what the finished product looks like.
I started by writing LOVE in cursive. Once I had that done I moved onto the next step.
I drew a “shadow” on each letter, staying consistent with which side I drew it on.
The next thing I did was color in those shadows. This was just a sample, so it looks a little messy, I really was more careful with the real thing.
I then went on to write LIVES in all capital letters.
Then I drew in the areas where I wanted to thicken the lines and add the little lines at the ends of the letters. I am sure that is the technical term for those parts.
I then colored those in. If you break it down like this it is so much easier to create this kind of lettering. I know it may look hard or be daunting, but it really isn’t, I promise. It just takes a little bit of practice.
I decided to write Love. Lives. Here. I chose this because my home is where we live and love. With all the sadness and yuck in the world, I am so grateful to have a safe haven to retreat to. A place where I know that people will love each other without question or judgement. While this is meant for Valentines Day, this could stay on this butcher art roll forever. However, I don’t keep things around for very long.
There you have it. A quick and easy way to create a piece of art for your home. Use it on a butcher roll, a chalkboard, or just grab a paper and have at it.
Have a great day!
