The wonderful thing about Tiggers… is that they bounce! As I was looking for techniques to space out my letters, since in my last post I realized that my letters were looking a bit too cramped, I came across this post.
The three techniques I will be trying based on this post are “bouncy script”, “fancy script”, and “tall & skinny script”.
Kiley says that to “bounce” letters, the easiest thing to do is to alternate between bigger ones and smaller ones. This gives the illusion of better spacing between them. As well, you can bounce as much or as little as you want, as shown in the attached graphic.
Here’s how it turned out for me:
Kiley says for “fancy” script, we can elongate the “connectors” of the letters to make the word spread out and look a little fancier. Here is how mine turned out:
This, for me, was the toughest of the three! I found that my marker was way too thick to write skinny script, which is basically more “cramped” but also more elongated in terms of the letters’ height. Here is my first attempt writing out my cats’ names:
I tried again with the thin tip of the marker and liked this result quite a bit!
While making these videos, I also used an app called Over (for iPhone). This was to create the timelapse videos and meld together my videos with their final-product photos, such as in the video for bouncy writing. I quite like how easy it was to use, and the templates provided by the app allowed me to quickly merge the pictures and videos I wanted. I definitely recommend checking it out!
What are your thoughts on these three new tips?
Which kind of script is your favourite? I like the bouncy script the best, and will be using it in the future for sure!
