Had to share this again from back in March. I love these markers!! I have to hide them from my 5 year old cause he also does 🙃 #getyourown 🤪
・・・repost:
Ok seriously these #crayola metallic outline markers are the bomb. They have color on the outer edge and they are #silvermetallic in the center! So cool!!!
.
Thought I would use them to show you two different styles of #fauxcalligraphy .
.
In the first option, you fill in the letters. .
The second option, you leave the thick strokes hollow. So it’s just an outline. .
.
If you like one better “this” drop me a pink heart 💖 in the comments. .
.
If you like two better “that” drop me a 💙

.did you want to learn this technique!? my faux calligraphy course Link is in bio 💗

Playing with some #handmadewatercolors from @sparrowscribbles 🤤 I believe I was using #paladin and #sapphire
.
The #shimmerandshine is just to die for 🤩 I decide to pull out an actual paint brush instead of my watercolor brush ...still trying to decide which I like better. What kind a brush do you use? What’s your fave!?

Wow! 2 years ago already that I posted this video!
.
Since then my lefty lettering has improved but unfortunately not my right handed lettering since I haven’t been practicing. .
.
Even though I’m proud to be a lefty, I still get jelly of you darling righties out there!?
.
Tell me in the comments:
1. Are you a righty or lefty.
2. Did you ever try lettering with your non-dominant hand?

**wait till end! Color shifting paint 🤩.
.
Hope you had a magical Fourth of July if you celebrate 🎉 we got to see some fun fireworks 🙌🏻
.
These #colorshifting #watercolorpaints from @sparrowscribbles are so neat! I love how the color changes when the light hits it differently. .
.
I used a white pencil for my base lettering. I’m not thrilled with my a and g but I figured I’d post this anyway.
.
.
A few people have been asking to take a class on how to do this type of watercolor lettering and blending. It made me think about offering a very casual live lesson, maybe on zoom with 20 students or so. And it would be sort of like a “lettering hangout” where I guide you through my process and we paint together! You’d be able to ask me questions as we paint. You’d have to have your own supplies ready to go for the call. I was thinking $25 for a 2 hour class??. I’d love to hear your thoughts below. Do you think it’s a good idea? And would you rather do it on black paper like this or on white like I’ve been doing so many of my other pieces?

#iridescentwatercolor 🤩😭🤩😭
.
I can’t get enough of this shimmery goodness😭 I can play with these all day and they look even better IRL 🤯.
.
They also look good on white but I’m liking it better on black paper. This is just some card stock that I got from michaels a long time ago. Do they make black watercolor paper 🤔.
.
Anyway, I just got these half pans from @sparrowscribbles and I wanted to do a quick color swatch for reference 🙌🏻 .
.
Brush is my fave #pentelwaterbrush all my fave watercolor supplies are on my amazon list. If you click “my fave lettering supplies “ from my bio and then look for “watercolor lettering” .
.
Trying to decide what I want to letter next using these beauts! Any ideas!!? 🤩.

Oh man! I really have absolutely no self control with these darn #iridescent watercolors and #calligraphyink 😭😭😭😭😭.
.
I was SO supposed to be working on my flourishing course tonight and as soon as I lay my eyes on the paint, it’s like an addiction. I say to myself “I’m just going to play for a few minutes” .
.
Guys, it’s an hour and a half later and here I am posting a video that I made cause it’s just too cool not to!!!🤷🏻‍♀️😭
.
Can not wait to get my other colors from @sparrowscribbles !! They should be here any day now!
.
Are you stuck on this watercolor bandwagon lately? I mean, I’m cool with it but my to-do list is not 🤪

Sound on! 🔈

Do you know this song!? Tell me in the comments I absolutely love it!
.
I’m so excited to be a part of the “teacher takeover” for the #surelysimplechallenge !! This is the second video I made for the takeover!
They are a little behind in posting videos so it should be up in a day or two.

I’ve been doing a lot of water color lettering lately with my calligraphy ink’s. This time though, I used my Tombow dual brush markers since I only had one pink color in my inks.

Have you tried doing watercolor lettering this way!!? It is so much fun and so relaxing! Let me know in the comments🙌🏻

For description, art tips and more about my art journey, head on over to @surelysimplechallenge (will be posted in the next day or two)

Do you use a brush marker like the Tombow dual to do the base lettering before you use the watercolor? Let me know in the comments!

I used to stray away from watercolor lettering because I think it’s much harder to do brush lettering with a paint brush. The brush is so flexible and the bristles move around so much more that it makes for difficulty in controlling the brush.

But lately I’ve been using my light Grey Tombow dual marker 95 to do the lettering first. That way I have a base to work with and I don’t have to focus on getting the actual letters perfect, Instead I can focus on laying down the color and blending! I just love it!

I’ll Tell ya though, I am not used to spending this much time on a lettering project!! This probably took me like 1.5 hours to create and 45 min to edit! 😳🤯🤓

So you won’t see these all the time but I do love doing them. Tell me in the comments if you’d like to see more of these process videos of watercolor blending!?

This is the day 20 prompt for the @handletteredandloved lettering challenge. I’ve been loving seeing everyone’s entries! Keep doing them and tagging me!

Here I’m using Dr Ph Martins #irridescent #calligraphyink 🤩 I love it soooo much. It’s perfect with my #pentelwaterbrush

Keep an eye out cause I caved and ordered the second set of 12 inks so I’ll def. be posting more!

What’s your favorite color combo from this video?!

Question: how would I convert something in procreate to an image?
Unical pratice..
Will this page help me learn even though I am a Righty!!!??? How you do this left handed is beyond me!!! It is perfect
what are some (relatively low lift) gift ideas for friends/family other than greeting cards?
I just started your 8 basic steps and all I can say is wow! I originally had the wrong brush pen so I went out and purchased the pentel brush pen pack you recommended and the trace paper. With your instructions and change in pen I can tell a huge difference after practicing only about 15 mins! You are amazing... I look forward to learning more from you. THANK YOU 🖊 😀
I can’t find the original post. What’s the best iPad for lettering
Hey lefty letterers and the righty’s you too. Check your local $Dollar Tree. I found uniball signo gelpens!
Finally got the chance to get some tracing paper! S***is getting real! 🤣. My goal is to participate in April's challenge.✒️👍
I just love this stuff!
Yesterday I bought Tanya's ultimate book with drills and lower case worksheets. I printed on 110lb cardstock, and arc punched it. I can take out any sheet at any time. I practiced for 2hrs yesterday with 4 diff sheets. And being lefty and finding this gave me hope that I can have pretty writing.
