Words have so much power and has the amazing ability to build up and to tear down. Both Vess and I love using our gifts of creativity to bring about some joy, encouragement, love and support to friends and those around us. Here, the recipients of Vess’ creativity were her uni lecturers and tutors, who she said many thanks and goodbye to in her final days.

She made these with her own typography skills and water colour epicness.

I personally love typography. Vess gave me a book about lettering and typography for Christmas and I adore it! Typography has the wonderful ability to add depth to words and further emphasis their meanings. Quotes and messages which have been drawn with the designer’s or typographer’s own hand have such uniqueness and speciality  as it holds an element of their own handwriting and style. For myself, I am always mentioning to Vess that I feel that words and letters have their own characteristics. For example I always felt that the letter R and S were a funny pair and that the E and F were little buddies.

I’m sure there are many of you who share my adoration of typography and calligraphy! (Or it may just be me who adds qualities to letters!)

Encourage you guys today to use your words to bring up your situations! Or even try to make sure to only say positive things. It can really change how you view a situation.

Like a friend recently told me, “Val, stop worrying about all the bad things that might not even happen, look and enjoy all the great things that you have now!”

So feel free to share these pics on a friends facebook wall!

You never know, may make their day or night just that little bit brighter!

love you guys
