Lettering Lesson #6, Self-Control

Day #4 & #5 “Self Control” Lettering Style

This is the day to put all your lettering skills together! Here is the example below. We also have provided you with a PDF Printable, if you would like to print it out.

We suggest that you put your own pattern in the letters and/or color them with bright colored pencils, blending if you like. Please post your work in the facebook group. >>> https://www.facebook.com/groups/CBibleJ/permalink/787527121405042/

JoAnna will be sharing Day #3 Lesson for today.

Using the self control alphabet, write a sentence or verse, making the first letter of each word with the “double line with pattern” alphabet and then the remaining letters in the word with just a “single line” of the same style. Here is my example using my for you. Blessings!

    Is the name of this original font posted anywhere? Thanks!

    1. CBJ says:

      Hi there, I’m glad you like this font. I really need to redo this tutorial, I didn’t have time to hand letter the work. (isn’t that sad as THAT is what this tutorial is showing… hand lettering! LOL) I got it on my to-do list. The name of the font is DJB Tootsie Wootsie, I did change it a bit from the original, but that’s the original typestyle.
      PS, you didn’t sign in when you entered the website, so all your post says is from “someone”. I hope next time you post you come in with your name. It’s nice getting to know our readers.

    1. CBJ says:

      Robyn, thanks for pointing this out, I forgot that it needed fixed. I will get that done on Monday 🙂

        I see that this error was reported a month ago – it’s now back to both pdf files being lower case

        1. CBJ says:

          You are the winner of “Catch it twice” award! Thanks. I JUST fixed it. So the link for the upper/lower case letters is correct. And the link for the upper case letters is correct. Thanks for letting me know 🙂 Have fun learning “Self Control” 🙂

      Robyn, who would have thought huh? And I have three of them in my first & last name!

      1. Robyn Arroyo says:

        I’m thankful that R’s are easy because between my first and last name there are 3 also, lol

      Thanks AMBER! As always, I’m Happy when I can make simple videos that are very easy to follow. And Thrilled to see hand lettering in bibles all over the world because, in part, they learned the styles here.
