I love masking fluid envelopes! They're different and fun. I've done a couple weddings with them and they're a huge hit, so here's a little tutorial to show you how to use a nib and calligraphy pen with masking fluid and a paint overlay!
So you had a client request a big design for some chalkboards, easy enough right? But then you get into it and you've had to erase and start over multiple times, projects like this can turn into time and money sucks real fast. How do you create the perfect design without spending a ton of time on it? Here's a glimpse at my process for when I need more precision than just free-handing a chalkboard design.
One of the important aspects of running your own creative business, is being able to showcase your work well. You build trust with potential clients when they see beautiful images of your work, and a thoughtful, consistent feed. You'll also need great images if you want your work to be featured on blogs and other accounts! This post is also for photographers too
After posting the shots of my Invitation Suite that I made for The Big Fake Wedding event in February, I got a lot of questions asking about how I made the outer envelopes. It looks like it'd be super difficult, but it's actually really simple & totally doable for wedding invitations! Here's the step-by-step process!
So lately I've been noticing that a lot of people in calligraphy and lettering groups I'm in, or people I follow on instagram have been struggling with the digital side of their lettering, ie. Photoshop & Illustrator. So I made a quick little how-to video, showing you how I vectorize my work in Photoshop. It's beginner, but I didn't go in-depth with everything so it's helpful if you know a little bit about Photoshop. (Disclaimer: it takes time to learn these programs, I've been working in them for 8 years - so cut yourself some slack! :)
Leave any questions you have in the comments & I'll reply or if I get a lot of one question I'll make another video for that! Enjoy!
