We Can Do Hard Things

First let me say that I found this class to be amazingly helpful! I had to watch all the videos several times because this is all new to me... thanks, Molly, for teaching me something new! I love it! :)

For this project I chose a favorite phrase, "We Can Do Hard Things." I originally inked it using Micron pens to make "fake" calligraphy, but I wasn't very happy with my results, so I traced over the sketch using the calligraphy pen instead (quite a few times before getting one that I could use... I'm a calligraphy newbie, haha). Here's the scan:

I cleaned it up and vectorized it (using Gimp and Inkscape... I don't have Photoshop/Illustrator). I decided to add the first words of the phrase in text.

I took it back into Gimp to add color and texture and finished 'er off. Done! :) Thanks again Molly!
