I created this alphabet exemplar sketchbook page for the Square Art challenge on Next Generation Stampers.
To begin with I punched out 26 1″ squares on glossy card using my square punch. Next I took some brightly coloured marvy matchables inkpads and smooshed them over some of the squares so that I had a set of various coloured squares.
Next I painted my sketchbook page black as I wanted the squares to contrast on the backgrounds.
On each square I doodled a letter of the alphabet in black ink and added doodles and highlights using both a black and a white pen. Once I was happy(ish) with how they looked I arranged them onto my sketchbook page and then glued them down at different angles.
Next I took a gold gel pen and added dots around each square so that they all had a dotty frame. I also added dots all around the edge of the sketchbook page to highlight it.
Then I took a white pen and started writing words around the alphabet blocks which began with the letter; ie travel, trust and truth around the letter T and so on. I continued until I felt it was complete.
Finally I filled in all the black spaces on the page with gold swirls until I was happy with how it looked.
Heres the finished scan:
