Crayola Lettering was a hit today at Greenwood College's Art Day! I'm glad I could show so many students and teachers how to do calligraphy and make some cool shadow effects 💙 Should I book some public "Crayligraphy" Workshops?
This weekend Tetley is having a "Tea Break" experience where you can literally smash stereotypes. You know rage rooms? It's like that but you get to shatter my hard work lol (see my last post)⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ People keep asking if I'm sad that all my work is getting destroyed. NAH. Don't worry, I'm a minimalist and I try not to hold value in material things. In fact, I'm going to the event to smash one myself right now. If anything it'll be therapeutic AF. It's kinda like ritual destruction of sand mandalas; nothing's permanent. SO BYE.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Which word would you break into a million pieces? Delicate, sensitive, weak, timid, cute, fragile or dainty? #notyouraveragecupoftea @tetleycanada

50/100 I'm counting my #handletteredabcs_2018 participation as my day 50 baseline exemplar for my #100daychallenge .

After a busy summer and even busier fall my husband and I celebrated our one year wedding anniversary in Tofino, British Columbia. Tofino may be one of the most enchanting and beautiful places on earth. Our trip reminded me of how grateful I am to be able to live and explore this beautiful vast country and share in its beauty with the one I love. ❤️ 🌍
#tbt // I can’t believe it’s been over a month since #putaRANGonit2018 ! - Without my iPad and my cricut, I would not be able to create cool things like this! Funny story about this one though is that I had left it to do last minute during the rehearsal dinner. I had to attach this vinyl in the dark while this Mini Cooper was parked at my house - iPhone flashlights and a couple of tries and cuts later, we finally got it on 😂 - 📸: @aka_appa // thanks for capturing this as the newlyweds drove off! - #moderncalligraphy #calligraphy #redlettersinlove #toronto #torontocalligraphy #torontoletteringcrew #handlettering #handlettered #lettering #madewithlove #ipadlettering #ipadcalligraphy #ipadpro #procreate #cricut #cricutmaker #vinyl #torontowedding #wedding #justmarried #justmarriedsign #justmarriedvinyl #minicooper #mrsandmrs

Have you ever tried Crayola Lettering, or #crayligraphy ? They are one of my favourite tools for lettering, and definitely the cheapest & most accessible! I'll be teaching this and more at the Christmas Cards Workshops next month, and they'll be up on my website to download and print too!🖍💜
Crayola Lettering Workbook in the works!
Calligraphy on place cards. Mulberry paper.
My first destination seating chart, so much fun! I’d like to give a shout out to Kelly at @southpaw_lettering in Hamilton. I’ve yet to meet her but she was a big help to me. It’s easy to glean from our communications that she is a kind, considerate, and generous person. She’s a talented lettering artist too! Thank you, Kelly 😘
Zz for #handletteredabcs_2018 .and that's a wrap! Oh my goodness I'm so happy I was able to finish this. I debated whether to stop halfway since I started late and I'm still working on my #100daychallenge but it didn't seem right to only have half an alphabet here! Looking forward to sharing numbers soon! . . . #calligraphy #copperplate #handletteredabcs #handletteredabcs_z @anintran @piecescalligraphy @handletteredabcs #letterarchive #letterarchive_z #alphabet #majuscule #miniscule #atoz #ididit #tookforever

So I’ve already declared my love for apple cider. But, you cannot... and, I repeat, you cannot have apple cider without a cinnamon stick! I’m very passionate about this. Anyway, here’s today’s #inktoberxalicia prompt, which is cinnamon 😆! • Brush lettering done with @tombowusa #Fudenosuke colour brush pens. Drawing done with @sakuraofamerica ’s Pigma Micron PN pens and @staedtlermars ’ pencil crayons. • • • • • #moderncalligraphy #artofwriting #instacalligraphy #instalettering #torontolettering #torontocalligraphy #torontocalligrapher #calligraphy #calligraphyart #calligraphylove #calligraphyaddict #calligraphypractice #calligraphydaily #lettering #letteringart #letteringpractice #letteringlove #brushlettering #brushletteringpractice #brushletteringvideo #handlettering #dailylettering #dailycalligraphy #calligraphyvideo #letteringvideo #inktober #inktober2018 #letteringchallenge
My parents are from India, so it's a pretty engrained part of our culture to enjoy tea time everyday. First thing in the morning and mid afternoon with snacks (samosas!), we have a Tetley orange pekoe with a splash of milk. The amount of this tea we have gone through is immeasurable. Seriously, it's such a daily must-have that my parents take a ziploc full of Tetley teabags with them on their travels because other brands are like, just not acceptable. So I'm pretty sure this is going to be their favourite brand commission I've ever done. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Writing these words 1000 times was about 20 hours of labour but I'm about to see it all come together this weekend. #notyouraveragecupoftea
Haven't posted the Inktober challenges since last week.... haven't been feeling very motivated, but here are three of the words from last week's Inktober challenge 😊 #innisfil #barrie #ontariocalligrapher #ontariocalligraphy #crayolamarkers #inktoberxalicia #inktober2018 #inktober #moderncalligraphy #handlettering #torontocalligraphy
LONG DAY ▪ It's one of those days where almost nothing went smoothly today. So I figured maybe I need a little reminder to be grateful for the wonderful things already in my life...like for a husband who makes wonderful banana bread and buys me flowers (even if its those discounted ones) 😘😘😘 . #thanksgiving #cafeaulettering #calligraphy #lettering #moderncalligraphy #diy #weddinginvitation #handlettering #dailycalligraphy #penandink #wedding #modernscript #torontocalligraphy #brushpen #brushlettering #brushcalligraphy #letteringpractice #typography #designinspiration
YEEHAW 🤠. I somehow inserted myself into the lives of these two calligraphers who I admire the most... and convinced them to work with me. This weekend we did calligraphy on bandanas at @boobyball for @rethinkbreastcancer sponsored by @sonnetinsurance. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Doing art live brings a whole different side to lettering. Usually it’s quiet, contemplative and focused... When it’s at a massive club venue, there’s booming music, drunk people bumping the tables and a lot of yelling to communicate, it’s definitely not for everyone. But these extroverted boss ladies took it in stride and we wrote on every single bandana in the house! Cheers to lots of fun and a great cause! 🎀
Thanks so much to everyone for coming out tonight! Hope you all love practicing your new brush lettering skills 🖌 . The next Brush Lettering Workshop is this Saturday and it's sold out! After that, the next ones are on November 6th at Make Lemonade, and November 11th at the First Look Bridal Show by @vineyard.bride

Every single name is beautiful! You define the name, it doesn’t define you! And I truly believe in that. I met people who completely ruined perfect name by their horrible behaviour; and the other way around, when person with such an odd name, by being beautiful from the inside out, would turn that name into something so original that you even thinking to call your future daughter like that haha. Do you agree? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #torontocalligraphy #handlettering #calligraphylove #calligraphy #gta #namecalligraphy #wallsign #handwritten #moderncalligraphy #modernart #calligraphytoronto #sign #happycalligraphy #velvetcalligraphy
Yy for #handletteredabcs_2018 . I'm not very pleased with this one - the #majuscule looks imbalanced and a bit on the wide side. I think I'll need to go back and restudy this one! . . . #calligraphy #copperplate #handletteredabcs #handletteredabcs_y @anintran @piecescalligraphy @handletteredabcs #letterarchive #letterarchive_y #alphabet #majuscule #miniscule #abcs_y
Not only do I love creating things but I also love being able to meet great people in the process. This bride was one of the best brides I’ve ever worked with. She trusted me and was amazing from beginning to the end! - We all make mistakes and I had two very minor ones after the bride received the mirror that she told me about. She said it wasn’t a big deal but I needed to fix it for my own peace of mind so I insisted that I come by. Luckily I was in her area that evening! - I try my very best not to make any mistakes but I’m not perfect and I have made mistakes. She was the nicest bride and I just wanted everything to be perfect for her big day. Hoping that all my future clients are like her! 💕 - #moderncalligraphy #calligraphy #redlettersinlove #practicemakesprogress #toronto #torontocalligraphy #torontoletteringcrew #handlettering #handlettered #lettering #togetherweletter #handmadefont #wedding #torontowedding #mirrorseatingchart #seatingchart #mirrorsign #tableseatingchart #sharpie #weddingseatingchart #rosegoldmirror #rosegoldseatingchart

Monday blues got me reminiscing one of my favourite projects ever. 💙👰🏻🌿 I can't stop thinking about this beauty that I got to do for a sweet friend's wedding back in August and I 100% want to do more next summer.

MERCI ▪ "And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him." .

OOPS ▪ See that little white dot between our names? That was basically an accidental blot that dripped from my nib just as I was about to write on my LAST navy envelope.

DIY ▪ A little over a year ago, my best friend & I signed up for a calligraphy class at Union Station led by @proseandfawns. I was recently engaged a few months before, and like 99.9% of bride-to-be's, I was determined to have some DIY projects done for my special day. I guess the thing that I didn't expect was that this 50-min class was going to lead me to a brand new chapter in my life, called: "how-to-spend-45mins-at-Currys-trying-not-to-buy-every-single-brush-pen-on-the-shelf".⠀ ⠀ Anyone else go through this chapter? No? Just me? Ok then...😅⠀ ⠀ #cafeaulettering #calligraphy #lettering #moderncalligraphy #diy #weddinginvitation #handlettering #dailycalligraphy #penandink #wedding #modernscript #torontocalligraphy #brushpen #brushlettering #brushcalligraphy #letteringpractice #typography #designinspiration
