Font of the Week

 
Wings of wind  is a nice dingbat font.  If you want to add wings to a project but don't have a stamp, this one is for you!  You can even print it on patterned paper and then cut it out.  I wonder if you could increase the size slightly larger  to cut a mat for it with a cutting machine?  Would save all the little wing tip cutting.  Lots of variations so there should be a wing style for every project!

Faux letterpress

ImageWith the new QK Letterpress kit, there is much interest in letterpress effects. Here are a few links, mostly on how to emulate letterpress effects with other things, but a few links on the letterpress process.

First, faux letterpress using Glimmer Mist screens from Tattered Angels

A nice , if perhaps time-consuming, effect from the blog A bit of this, A bit of that

Another faux letterpress tutorial using a hot glue gun!

Examples using SU texture plates and a Big Shot - and here is a tutorial for using the plates

Reverse letterpress techniques using the Cuttlebug folders ( a raised rather than debossed image with the background debossed and coloured) -Monica's video , another video.  I have had some success with chalk ink pads lightly pounced on to the RAISED side of the Cuttlebug folders which gives a more letterpress like effect but it is tedious (cleaning up the overinked areas) and does not give a very clear image. But I would encourage experimentation and then sending me a link to add!

For a digital approach to faux letterpess, this tutorial tells you how to create a title that looks letterpress, using Photoshop (the tut is at the bottom, after the examples) and another two versions here.

Letterpress , alive and in the UK

A video showing the creation of some letterpress coasters - not really "useful" but a great tune and shows REAL letterpress in action. A more informative documentary video here .
