Chapter 4 – Line – Continued

Exercise #3: Make a drawing that includes each kind of line: actual, implied and imaginary.

I am all about multi-uses for things, so here I go again.

I have done a couple of these books before, so I made two styles this time.  I am talking about Word Books – where the pages are cut into letters and when put together they make a word. Then you customize them by adding pictures and other things to tell a story.

These are tedious to draw, and even more tedious to put the background paper on, but when it’s all done they are so darling. I made two of these this week and gave them along with the notecards I posted earlier to the silent auction to help my friends raise the money they need to the 3-Day Breast Cancer walk in August.

This is my traditional wordbook. You have background papers on each page and then the actual letter in an accent color.  You can embellish the letters also.

On the second book, I took a themed package of paper out of my wall of paper and it just happened to have enough coordinated colors/patterns to work for this book. After I had put the background paper I had laid it out on my work table and I loved how your eye completed the letters on the pages.

Now to my tie into Chapter 4 – Line…This book shows all three types of line:

  • Actual – the lines of the pages.
  • Implied – The line the pages make as they line up
  • Imaginary – the way your eye finishes the letters that are not there.

Both of these books were cut using the same pattern: myFamilyWordBook

Included in the zip file are:

  • Illustrator (ai) – with layers
  • Make the Cut (mtc) – with layers
  • Simple Vector Graphic (svg) – with layers
