Skillshare: Modern Calligraphy

Lately, I've been obsessed with hand lettering and calligraphy. I don't have the best handwriting to start with but I love the way that a lot of artists are able to bring life to words through typography and hand lettering. Here's some of the things that have been catching my eye.

I've enrolled into a class on Skill Share called:
Introduction to the Art of Modern Calligraphy (Calligraphy I)
In this class I'll learn some basic calligraphy techniques and how to create my own alphabet. Skill Share is an awesome site that has many classes from Photoshop fundamentals to Branding and even Intros to 3D Printing. I really love the idea continuing to learn and challenge myself by taking classes like this.

Valentine's Day Nail Art

My current nails - Valentine's Day Nail Art - Coral with gold glitter and white heart detail. To make the heart, i used a bit of washi tape and cut out a heart shape to use as a stencil. Washi Tape is less sticky than normal tape, so it won't pull off any of the nail polish that is already on your nails. I did this pretty quickly last night and may add a bit more design tonight.
