I tried my hand at fauxsaics using @abbie_uproot’s tutorial a few months back and was inspired by my recent visit to @phillymagicgardens to try again. • The idea of mosaics as these imperfect yet beautiful works of art is so prevalent in Isaiah Zagar's work, and it was so interesting to me to learn that he always works randomly when selecting the pieces that go into his mosaics. • In trying to create one, even digitally, I realized how difficult it actually is to randomly create a mosaic the way he did. No matter how hard I tried, my mind still tried to dictate the way I drew the tiles and selected the colors. I guess it really is magic! ✨✨✨ • • • • • #handlettered #handlettering #calligraphy #moderncalligraphy #bashfullettering #fauxcalligraphy #eventlettering #digitallettering #visitphilly #philadelphia #mag#magicens #phillymagicgardens #explorephilly #fauxsaics #mosaics #magic #mosaiclettering #youcanfauxsaic #isaiahzagar #handletteredmosaic #goodtype #graphicdesign #letteringdesign #ipadlettering #procreatelettering

Shout out to my Instagram husband for putting up with my complaining that he’s taking pictures from my double-chin angle💙 • We visited Philadelphia’s Magic Gardens after watching last week’s episode of This Is Us, and it really was pretty magical to walk through the colourful mosaics and experience such a unique place. • • • • • #handlettered #handlettering #calligraphy #moderncalligraphy #bashfullettering #fauxcalligraphy #eventlettering #digitallettering #wanderlust #travel #explore #adventure #visitphilly #philadelphia #magicgardens #phillymagicgardens #explorephilly #instagramhusband #behindthescenes #bts #thisisus

My sister’s baby shower was today - her first child and my first time as an aunt! - so I made these leaves to celebrate and to go along with her “woodland creatures” baby shower theme. - Inspired by @thepostmansknock and lettered with “baby” and “Inkrott” (baby’s last name), I had so much fun making these. All I needed was a white @sakuraofamerica Gelly Roll pen and some leaves from the yard! - They seemed like a hit at the shower and complemented the table decorations perfectly. A great idea that can be used in many circumstances. - My sister said she’s thinking of making a shadow box frame showcasing the leaves in the nursery, which I thought was a great idea! Did I mention that I’m so excited to be an aunt?!?! 🍂🍁 🍃 - - - #han#handlettera> #leaflettering #handlettering #fauxcalligraphy #sakuragellyroll #autumnlettering #autumnvibes #babyshower #decor #happylettering #moderncalligraphy #eventlettering #let#letteringlove #handletter #letteringgoodvibes #customlettering #familylove #modernlettering #lettering #inspireddaily #createeveryday #dailylettering #letteringart #handwritten

I am not yet in Christmas mood, but lettering on these Cristmas ornaments contributes to slightly thinking of it. +++ Taraaaa. Meine beletterten Weihnachtskugeln bzw. ein kleiner Teil davon. Da ich dies bald auch live bei einem Event mache, bin ich voll am Gestalten und Farben ausprobieren. Hier mal mit ein paar Ausnahmen die rote Serie. Und wer in Wien wohnt: am 10. Dez. startet mein 6 wöchiger Lettering-und Brushkalligrafie-Aufbaukurs. Da machen wir auch so etwas.

Thanks to my uniquely spelled name, I never got to buy any personalized items of the rack at the store. That didn't stop me from checking every single time just in case. Because maybe this time will be different. Maybe this time I'll just be Gina.⁠ ⁠ The first item I had personalized with my actually name was a pair of Mickey ears from my first trip to Disneyland because they were able to customize on the spot. I LOVED those ears and it felt so nice finally having something with my real name on it.⁠ ⁠ That's what I love about calligraphy: I can now personalize any name, regardless of spelling, and give everyone that feeling of having their name on something special.⁠ Were you one of the lucky ones who always got to buy a knicknack with your name on it or were you like me? ⁠ I have a few dates available for event calligraphy this holiday season! Let's work together to spread some holiday cheer all around. Send me an email and we can create an event just for you.⁠ ⁠ #christmasornaments #customornaments #chr#christmasdecorns #christmasdecor #handmadeornaments #personalizedornaments #handletteredornament #creativityfound #moderncalligraphy #calligraphy #calligrapher #livelettering #livecalligraphy #eventcalligraphy #eventlettering #eventcalligrapher #sfcalligrapher #bayareacalligrapher #mlpletteringevents #mlpcalligraphyevents #mlplivelettering #melodylanepress

Why not make place cards out of corks cut in half? I like the look and feel of it. But it‘s really not easy to write on the surface, hence the names don’t look as smooth and fine as I wanted them to... I used a regular Sharpie pen for this btw. . . Platzkarten aus halbierten Korken? Warum nicht! Ich mag den Look & Feel. Allerdings ist es nicht einfach, auf der Schnittfläche zu schreiben - zumindest ist es nicht so gleichmäßig und hübsch geworden wie ich es gerne gehabt hätte... Ich hab übrigens einen normalen Sharpie benutzt - ein Edding oder anderer Permanent Marker hätte es auch getan. . . . . . . . . . . #placecards #placecardideas #corkplacecards #korken #letteringonsurfaces #eventlettering #lettergraphy #eventartist #calligraphylettering #eventcalligrapher #eventcalligraphy #calligraphybusiness #freelancebusiness #calligratype
