#lettermore2018 April Promps

April

Looking for some help to practice your new hobby more regularly?

Join in on these fun weekly prompts!
Use whatever pens you have on hand, create something beautiful, snap a picture, and post it to Instagram with the hashtag #lettermore2018!

It can be really difficult to know what to write when you’re getting started with calligraphy (well, and when you’ve been doing it for a long time too).

April Prompts

Week One: Use the word SPRING somehow

Choose a phrase that has the word spring in it. You can always search for phrases on Pinterest. Think, “Spring is in the air” or “A kind word is like a spring day”.
You get to be creative with this one!

Week Two: Community Over Competition

If you’ve been following along for a while, then you know I’m all about community over competition. I want us all to say a big fat NO to the comparison game. So, in your caption be sure to share about your experience with the calligraphy community (or any community that has had an impact on you!). Think positive!

Week Three: Practice a word with double letters (ex. happy, coffee, good)

This is a good exercise that should challenge you a little bit! Double letters have a way of challenging the way you think about connecting letters together. Bonus points if your word has more than one set of double letters, like coffee!

Week Four: Post your lowercase alphabet.

I have a feeling that some of you may be avoiding some of what I call the “dreaded letters”. You can’t avoid them forever! Create, photograph, and post your FULL lowercase alphabet. You can write all the letters connected together in one line or create a page full of colorful letters. Once again, you get to be creative!

Be sure to post your work to Instagram, use the hashtag #lettermore2018, and tag me (@lysstyler.letters) in your post as well!
I can’t wait to see what you create!
