May lettering challenge was really good, I'm comfortable with my strokes and mastered the strokes of some alphabets that I was having a hard time back then. I also discovered that I'm more of a watercolor person than brush pens, but that doesn't mean that I'm going to stop using them for calligraphy.
I also looked for a new lettering challenge to join for June and found the #bestmirroreverchallenge hosted by @whimsicalwatermark over at Instagram. She really got wonderful prompts for June's challenge and felt a bit sad because I can't seem to continue doing the whole month. My daughter's school is about to open, and I need to prepare her school needs. So maybe, I'll be back doing lettering challenges by mid of the month or if not, by next month. But of course, that won't stop me from picking up my pens.
So cheers to the last 2 days of May #togetherweletter and the first 2 days of June #bestmirroreverchallenge.
Days 30 & 31
"I am forgetful!"
This week's fun! I solely use watercolor for this week's lettering challenge. And one thing I discovered is I have lesser mistakes. Which is apparently good because I get to save up on papers. Lol!
Anyway, here are days 23-29. Hope you like them! ^_^
Day 23 - Resist
Day 24 - Love
Day 25 - Ocean
Day 26 - Black
Day 27 - Bacon
Day 28 - Slow Down
Day 29 - Maybe
I'm now fond of watercolor, I found a very nice paint brush (the cheap ones of course) and so far I'm satisfied how it works with watercolors. And the cards, they go very well with the colors I used for the calligraphy. One of my favorites also is day 21, I never knew yellow is such a nice color to use for lettering and as well as the flower crowns I used for props.
Overall, I'm in love with this weeks outcome. ^_^
Day 16 - Incredible
Day 17 - Watching
"Dance like nobody's watching."
Day 18 - Plan
Day 19 - Best
Day 20 - Secret
Day 21 - Yesterday
Day 22 - Photo
This week, I used fewer brush pens and preferred using watercolor, color pencil, and color marker. I almost forgot that I can use them for the lettering challenge. And also, the brush pens that I always used are running out of ink, so I'm saving them up now because I don't have any plans of buying new pens yet.
I also used a journaling card when I took a picture to add "spice" on my IG feed - which I really like! I guess, I have to get more journaling cards from now on. Lol!

I kind of failed in my somewhat desperate attempt to incorporate some doodles on my calligraphy. I made it in days 01 & 04, but the rest.. nada! So I decided, to drop doodling and continue with the lettering challenge instead. Besides, I still yet to find out if I'm really for brush pens or the real ones.
Enjoy my first week of #TogetherWeLetter. ^_^

Day 09 - Sadness
I've been lazy for the past week because of the scorching heat, that all I wanted to do was freeze in front of the fan!
BUT BUT BUT...
I finished the lettering challenge!!!
That was a first! Makes me proud of my little accomplishment. I'm really happy! ^_^
I love how #togetherweletter went. I saw progress on my works, creative juices are starting to flow (again, after how many years), I get to discover techniques on how to do my lettering without too many mistakes (and wasted papers. Hihi!) and finding the best time to work on the challenge.
I just wish, and I'm really crossing my fingers, that I'll get to fulfill my dreams anytime soon. Using calligraphy and fabric flowers to create one unique handmade piece.
God willing! ^_^
Cheers to the last week of April Together We Letter Challenge.
Day 25 - Spectacular
Day 26 - Bloom
