New #flourishingincircles idea: Here's a simple flourish that can help you create a circular shape around your words.
.
P.S I drew a circle in pencil first so that I could follow the shape when lettering with the pastel pencil.
.
Let me know if you will be trying this!

Want to do a 'sandwich flourish' but don't have any ascenders in your word? No worries, here's how you can create a standalone flourish that adds balance to your piece. ✨
.
Save it, have a go, and show me! I'd be stoked to see your flourishes ☺️

Step 1: Write out the words as you normally would, but don't 'finish' the last letter on the end of the line. Look at how I left my g, y and m before I flourished them
Step 2: Create your flourishes from the ends of those letters. I've shown you some of my favourite flourishing shapes. See, they're not too hard! Save this video so you can refer back to it if you need to. Remember that you can always tack on the flourishes even if it seems like there's no natural starting/ ending point (look at how I joined the starting flourish to my 'o').

You guys asked to see more easy, flourishing ideas that you can add to your lettering, so here's an idea for singular words. I like to extend the flourishes so that they sandwich the word and create a circular shape (which you guys know I'm fond of). #flourishingincircles
.
Hope this was useful- if so, save it and refer back to it in your own time! ☺️

As you guys know, I love getting my hands on new and innovative stationery products. These hybrid dual metallic pens that @pentel_australia sent me are so cool- they're different colours when you write on black vs white paper! This one is gold on black paper and metallic orange on white paper. You'll be seeing more of these pens in upcoming posts - different colours - because I really like them. They're juicy and so much fun 😄
.
Swipe to see the dual colour in action 👉🏼👉🏼👉🏼

'One day there won't be a next time'. This can either mean 'one day it will be too late' or 'one day what you want will become your reality'. It all depends on how you want to interpret it.
.
I should have called this series #letteringincircles instead of #flourishingincircles. Anyway here's the next instalment. Ring & banner combo plus 3D paper art. Not sure how I'm going to top this next time. Oh wait, maybe there won't be a next time 😉😉

My favourite thing about writing on clear surfaces is that there's no need to rub out any pencil marks afterwards. Simply remove your guidesheet from the frame and you're done! 😉
.
My biggest #flourishingincircles tip for this one is to keep the x-height consistent. It helps maintain readability even when there's som crazy flourishes going on.
.
P.S. If you haven't already read it, I've posted a new blog post talking about the two main things that it takes to be successful. Link in bio 🙂

This piece would've looked beautiful if I had used greens and blues, but I wanted to show that grey can be beautiful too. I like to wear the colour grey because it has a certain softness that black doesn't have. I like the comfort of being cosy in bed whilst looking out at the grey sky. ☁️☁️ And of course, fluffy grey goslings or little grey kittens with blue eyes are the cutest animals ever.
.
Then again, if I see any grey hairs I'm going to dye them.
.
Style tip: add some leaves to your loose flourishes (is that a term?) for some pizzazz 🌿

I really like how pigmented these metallic gel pens are. They remind me of paint. It's so satisfying when ink comes out smoothly and not streaky. #flourishingincircles

@Regranned from @fionaariva - Action is the seed of fate. I wanted this piece to be circular to represent a seed, as well as the wheel of life. Actions produce results which inspire more action, which then produces even greater results. 🌱🌿🌲
.
On the flip side, it also represents the wheel of monotony. When we passively live life, we go through the motions of daily life, and everything seems so repetitive. It's like we're stuck on a hamster's wheel, trapped by the busyness of life. 🐹🎡

@Regranned from @fionaariva - A simple flourish. There is beauty in simplicity 🌱.

I hope your day will be filled with small things that make you smile. I hope that you will savour the moments of tranquility throughout your busy day. Most of all, I hope your actions may bring a smile to someone else's day 🙂🙂🙂.

@Regranned from @fionaariva - I wanted this piece to be reminiscent of stars in the galaxy, which is why I decorated it with dots to look like the starry night sky. The circle shape is meant to represent a round ball of gas, whilst the swooshy flourish is meant to remind you of the Milky Way. ⭐️🌟🌌🌃🎇🌠

@Regranned from @fionaariva - This line from #theimpossibledream lyrics sounds pretty unfortunate. To love, pure and chaste, from afar, sounds like heartache and suffering. Sometimes it is inevitable I guess.

@Regranned from @fionaariva - Happy Monday to some of you 🌞🌞🌞. It's still Sunday evening for the rest of you 🌚🌚🌚 meaning it's not too late (for anyone) to grab your $9 beginner's brush pen lettering workbook. These are the last few hours that this introductory price will last, so now is the time!
.
Link for more information is in my bio 🔥🔥🔥
.
For those of you who have already got your copy, I want to feature your work on my website blog. Use the hashtag #fionaariva or tag me in the photo. There are already a few of you on there already 😉
.
P.S No I do not teach flourishing in circles in my beginner's workbook. This will be available in an intermediate course later.

@Regranned from @fionaariva - ‼️Tomorrow I'll be launching my first workbook, 'So you want to learn the fundamentals of Brush Pen Lettering' for those of you who have been saying you want to get into lettering but just haven't yet for whatever reason. For two days only (Saturday 23 and Sunday 24), you can get a digital download version for $9 only!
.
It really doesn't get any cheaper than that, especially since it's choc-a-block full of activities, practice sheets, and explanations that guide you through basic strokes to writing words and sentences. You will need a small-tipped brush pen for this workbook.
.
Two days only at the one-off price of $9!! 😮😮 (After that it will be $29 for the digital PDF). That's almost 70% off! Check out my previous post for a preview of the contents.
.
For those of you who have been asking about physical copies, yes they will also be available in a kit (with a Tombow brush pen + gold-foiled card for a bonus DIY project) for $55. More on that later.

@Regranned from @fionaariva - You improve every day if you keep practising. Compared to yesterday, I'm much happier with the uniformity in sizing of my bubble flourishes. My ombré still has a lot of room for improvement. I wanted the yellow colour to radiate from the centre of the circle, but unfortunately it leaked into the top right hand corner too. Oh well, tomorrow will be better! 🌞

This is how I like to do curly flourishes. They remind me of soap bubbles, people with curly hair or fluffy clouds. Heck it even looks like a hamburger 🍔.. I could really do with a hamburger..

@Regrann from @fionaariva - I call this the 'banner flourish' because the flourishes give the illusion of a banner. You know that quote, 'Bloom where you are planted'? I've thought up a similar one: 'Persist where you have started'. I almost binned this one when I couldn't get the top flourish to balance with the bottom flourish. By some stroke of lucky, I had the brainwave to make the main lines parallel to each other and boom, the banner flourish was born.
.
Question: does anyone else get shaky hands when you try to do calligraphy after having a hot shower? For some reason mine get shaky!

@Regrann from @fionaariva - For this #flourishingincircles post, I've gone easy on the curly flourishes and instead used half-leaves to create the illusion of the circle shape. 🌿🍃🌱🍀
.
Sometimes it's easy to get carried away with curly flourishes, so in this case, it's less is more. Do you think it looks better with simpler flourishes?
