Practice makes progress.
You might be thinking, “it’s March, it’s too late to start something new.”
But, every day is a great day to start something new! Like Lara Casey says – there is nothing magical about January!
We can make positive changes in our lives any day.
So, let’s talk about the last time you picked up a brush pen.
For some of you that was last week, others it was last year, and some of you the answer is still…never. I’m not judging you, but I’m going to ask you (very nicely) – do you want to learn how to do calligraphy?
PS it’s totally okay if the answer is no.
BUT if the answer is YES, then it’s time to grab that pen and get practicing!
Picking up calligraphy is not about any skills that you may or may not already have. It’s ALL about the time, effort, and heart you are willing to put into it.
Map out your week and find at least 15 minutes where you’ll be able to sit down and practice. Because, hey, 15 minutes a week is better than 0! Start small and work your way up.
I’ve also got a great solution if you’re thinking, “but I never know what to write!”
I understand! I could never count the amount of times that I’ve been blocked from creativity simply because I don’t know what to write.
Here’s where I’m hoping to help you out!
I’ve talked to a few of you in the Beginner Brush Lettering Facebook group and we decided to incorporate two different kinds of prompts this month! A few of the prompts make you think about your own word/phrase and others tell you exactly what to write!
This gives us the opportunity to see the same words/phrases in all of our unique styles (love that!). And the prompts allow us to learn a little bit more about you and push your creativity a little bit!
Week One: A quote from your favorite movie or TV show
Week Two: Purpose fuels passion
Week Three: Use the word LUCKY somehow
Week Four: You matter!
Week Five: A word that describes you (just one!)
Don’t forget to use the hashtag #lettermore2018 on your post so that we will see it! And be sure to scroll through the hashtag to see what other people have created!
* The weeks are based on how many Saturday’s there are in the month. Feel free to do each prompt at your own leisure!
