Before I left for the wedding this weekend, I did something I don't usually do. Take a class. And not just any class, but a #brushcalligraphy class with a lady that is amazingly talented! @gracesongcalligraphy ran a very informative and challenging yet very therapeutic class. Please follow her and let me know if you want to attend and I can see if we can make it happen ;) #mondaymotivation#newskill#brushlettering#brushcalligraphy#facetLoves

El sábado pasado realizamos un nuevo taller en Medellín de Brush Lettering! Les compartimos imágenes de esta experiencia. Recuerden que tendremos Workshop en Bogotá el 18 de noviembre y próximamente publicaremos nueva fecha para octubre en Medellín ☺️✍🏻🌈 Gracias a todos por su apoyo y entusiasmo por nuestro taller!
Do you remember when you started? When you were so excited and curious and wanted to learn everything and experiment? You might have noticed that I haven't been posting daily these days and that's because I was feeling like the "pressure" to have so many posts available was spoiling the fun in a way and I was limiting myself to less time-consuming lettering.. I wasn't dissatisfied with my lettering, because I find some styles that are now 'easier' or take less time for me really beautiful and it still is amazing to me that I can do something like that (which I never would have thought!)
But there's a reason why this account is called Learning Lettering. I want to keep learning. I want to improve. And there are so many styles and techniques and fonts that I are out of my comfort zone and that I want to practice. I want to dedicate more time to this and also share even more beautiful, amazing lettering with you!
So, yeah..I'm going back to the start 😉
What do you think? Have you ever experienced something like this and how do you push yourself to go outside of your comfort zone?
Lots of love,
SUBDAY: DESCENDING LOOP
I let Sunday get away from me! 🙈 Totally did these drills yesterday and forgot to post before I went to bed—oops! Week two in the books and now on to week three (pretty proud of my consistency if I do say so myself! 💁🏻)—hoping to find a way to win a copy of the lettering drills this week!
The beautiful and talented @betsysueletters made this stunning piece!
Sometimes things around us change - be it the seasons or something else. So comforting to know that beauty and art stay ❤️ 🍂

I used magic markers which I bought from Japan Surplus last year.. Noticed the effects on a few of the words. That's how the words look like whenever I retrace them with the white marker.
See my IG stories for the video.
