So what have I been busy with? I'm now taking calligraphy seriously. I'm a slow learner but I am determined more than ever to practice and learn the craft :)
The very first challenge that I joined in Instagram was run by HandletteredABCs, which is writing one letter per day. So happy I was able to complete the challenge! And was able to do some additional projects in between.
Here is my top nine letters, and 3 of these were given shoutouts, thank you!
It has always been my personality that I love variety, so in a span of one month I was able to accumulate a handful of brush pens and a few nibs in my collection.
I was able to appreciate my old stuff of scrapbook stash, by using papers as background in my photography, or writing in them and even found my embossing pens really fun to use to create my number 1 post.
Yes the letter Q was the most challenging one that took me several tries and I even created a video, yey for that!
Here's one of the lettering that didn't pass since the color of the paper did not match with my embossing powder.
And my water soluble crayons was so much fun to use, made me feel like a real artist while using it =D
And here is my very first quote art, almost ruined the paper with all the erasures LOL. I've always wanted to do something like this. Thanks to tutorials in Youtube and the challenges I was able to push myself to try new things.
There are a few lettering challenges over IG, let's just see how I can cope up LOL

Made something crafty, for a friend's baby shower...
A 6x6 mini album for the baby boy coming soon January next year!
I used a mixed of old and not so new stuff, Amy Tangerine, Dear Lizzy and Crate Paper.
I was able to purchase 6x6 sleeves and just pre-cut patterned papers to slip inside.
I made simple decorations using a cardstock as fillers inside the album.
Meanwhile I already have an idea for my Christmas tags this year. I just have to find time to do them ;)

I really wanted to create something for a friend but I can't seem to finish this the way I wanted.
|the plan - I want a fuschia and yellow color scheme|
|The pattern was messy and awkward *sigh*|
|I eventually sprayed the whole canvas with fuschia, so its now orange instead of yellow, oh well|
