Creativity 0 comments

You LOVE art. You’re crazy about hand lettering. You’re obsessed with watercolor masterpieces. You admire artists so much. You would LOVE to create your own beautiful art, right? The question is: How?

I gotcha, girl.

Some of you may know that hand lettering is my thing. But two years ago, I literally didn’t even know what hand lettering was. How did I get here? Glad you asked. 

 

1. BELIEVE IN YOURSELF.

I was on Pinterest one day, scrolling through the arts and crafts. I noticed another one of those lovely artsy pins, and I was like, “Uggh, how do people create such beautiful things? I can’t do that, but I wish I could!” And then I was like “YES. I CAN.” 

You absolutely can be creative, it just takes practice. It takes creating. often.  

Still don’t think you’re cut out for it? Let me help. You are amazing. You can be creative. You can be an artist. You absolutely got this. 

2. START WITH PINTEREST.

Pinterest is a gold mine of gorgeous art and creativity tips. Make a board and start pinning away, girlfriend. Take advantage of all the amazing resources you have at your fingertips.

Type in the art form that you want to learn, and I guarantee you a whole bunch of pins will pop up that will get you started immediately. Don’t get discouraged by all the impossible looking, beautiful art. You’ll get there. 

3. THE THREE P’S

They key to anything new/challenging is patience, practice, and perseverance. Take it slow, you’ll get there. Practice often, you’ll get there. And persevere. That means don’t give up, you’ll get there. 

 

I believe in you, God believes in you, and now YOU believe in you. You are awesome! I am so proud of you for taking this on. You are going to totally rock it. My hand lettering journey wasn’t exactly easy, but it was fun, and I love what I do. I get to inspire people through art, and that makes up for every single stumbling block along the way. Sending you a virtual hug and wishing you the best, Lydia.
