Martha Pie  Philly, PA Finding my way back to a creative heartbeat ❀ I'd be thrilled to work with you. DM me 😊

Last day of my trip! We've had a great time and laughed a ton here. Laughter is important 😁 but I'm excited to get back to my normal routine of lettering and not eating everything in sight! ❀️

What a lovely quote! We don't plant seeds expecting to harvest the fruit right away, so why do we put so much pressure on ourselves to be perfect? At least I do. I'm so excited about the future but I need to put in the time to grow. .

Still on vacation, so here's a piece I did last weekend. It went off in one of my happy mail packages 😊 I wanted to try finetec shadowing like @artsycraftsy does. I can't wait to play with it more!

What is your favorite way of creating something? Watercolor, music, pens, cooking, writing? I can't pick one myself πŸ™ˆ

I actually like how this monstera leaf came out for today's #letslearnflorals with me and @inkypaws_ 😊 I was too scared to letter next to it, so I decided to try using my new iPad Pro! Guys, I'm obsessed with it! 😍

This line from Maya Angelou really stood out to me ❀️ #letteringpoets @amajoletters @desert_dwellers

These wildflowers are some of my favorite elements to make! It's so soothing. I don't have to adhere to any specific guidelines and I can just do whatever I want. Just like how real wildflowers grow wherever they want πŸ’•

Thanks for joining us so far! πŸπŸƒπŸŒ±

Trying not to fall into the trap of harshly criticizing my own work. The important thing for me to remember is to enjoy the process of creating because that is when I'm happiest. Whether my hand is holding a pen, a brush, a spatula, a pair of scissors or a whisk, I am building something out of nothing and that's pretty magical, don't you think? I can choose to see messy splattering here or I can choose to see shooting stars, and I'm going with the stars! I hope you also choose to see the best in what you are creating. I am so inspired by you all. ❀️

One of these I'll try lettering with bleedproof white ink... today is not that day 😬 #wabisabiapril @theletteringtribe

I'm so glad I treated myself to those Finetecs at the recent @philadelphia_calligraphers event! When was the last time you treated yourself? What did you buy (or make, eat, do)? πŸ’Έ

I have a thing for colored pencil on kraft! Why don't I do it more often? πŸ€” .
Happy Easter/Resurrection Day/just another Sunday to all of you! ❀ #happyletteringchallenge @happyletteringchallenge

Isn't this just a beautiful line? @rupikaur_ writes amazing words ❀ I really love when people use the shape of an object as their canvas, so that's what I did with today's #letslearnflorals prompt- an aspen leaf. I think these leaves are gorgeous with their tiny veins, but I know I wouldn't be able to do them justice so here we are πŸ˜…

I hope you are all having a beautiful Saturday 😊 This week our prompts involve leaves- join me and @inkypaws_! #letteringpoets with @amajoletters @desert_dwellers πŸ’•

Happy Friday! What are you most looking forward to this weekend? My mom's Easter meal is my second favorite of the year (after her Christmas Eve dinner)- kielbasa and saΕ‚atka and jajka, oh my!

I bought a new set of @mozartsupplies brush pens last weekend and tried them out last night. They have a true bristle brush tip, so definitely a learning curve for me since I'm used to Tombows. But they are fun to use and the colors are nice and vibrant. Trust me, the yellow is much more yellow in person- I had to tone it down for this photo so you could read it a little better πŸ™ˆ I can't wait to try illustrations with them!
