Yesterday, we started the new academic year. Yeah, back to school , back to work again.
Alhamdulillah I’m still in the same position, teaching class four. Well, my students are new, the class is new, everything is new. 🙂
I hope I can teach and educate these students well. I’m trying to love them. Insha’Allah I’ll love them with true love.
When I recited Qur’an surah Al-Ma’aarij, I found the verse that explains about patience. It’s verse 5 in surah Al-Ma’aarij. And I’ve ever read there are so many verses talk and order us to be patient people.
For me, “Patient” is something easy to say, but it’s hard to do. After fasting in last Ramadhan, I try to control myself to be patient in facing the hardships in this life. I hope I can follow this guidance. Insha’Allah.
Here, I’ll add a verse from Qur’an surah Al-Hujurat verse 13.
O mankind, indeed We have created you from male and female and made you peoples and tribes that you may know one another. Indeed, the most noble of you in the sight of Allah is the most righteous of you. Indeed, Allah is Knowing and Acquainted.
Today I’ll write/ share the steps of making hand lettering as I said in my previous post. The following steps were taken base on my experience only. I don’t read any tutorials, just doing/practicing by viewing its examples and I’m trying not to duplicate those examples. I want to keep the authenticity of my hand lettering.
If you are interested, you can read the steps below!
The first step, I made some soft lines to make me easy in drawing the letters and shapes. I chose to draw a bottle and ribbon.
Then I chose the words and wrote them on the ribbon. Here, I chose surah Al-Qolam verse: 1 for this pic. The reasons, because I took the word Qolam from this verse as my new blog name. It’s Arabic word means “Pen.” And “Qolamii” = My Pen in English. I’ve ever written that I don’t have power/ authority but I only have pen. I’ll make my pen sharper than swords. 🙂 Here I used pencil first before using pen in the next step.
The third, I thickened the pic by using pen. I used snowman drawing pen 0.1 and 0.6. I also include this verse in Arabic, but I only wrote by small Arabic letters.
The last step is coloring and deleting some lines and other useless parts in that image. I used red, blue and green for coloring. I drew a bottle. Bottle is like my papers and my images are like the water. Will I make this bottle clean or dirty? Of course I’ll make it clean and benefit water for me especially and for others. I hope so.
Those’re my steps in drawing hand lettering. I must say I’m not an expert, so I need those steps. Actually I only need time less than one hour to make it. But my time isn’t only for blogging, I have other duties anyhow I’m in holidays. 😀
PS. Sorry, the pics aren’t good because the quality of my camera in my phone isn’t good too. LOL! One day I must change it!
