Lines from one of my favorite songs atm, listen to it if you haven't already (it was actually sung by housefires originally)!!! Also finally got my hospital access badge for internship (I really dislike driving to Escondido though)&Shadow shift for orthopedic dept on Wednesday yay🎉

Words are kinda hard to read but I'm working on my peonies and side view loose florals

When you have some gorgeous handmade paper and you haven't done anything with your wedding vows, you put nib to paper... and magic happens ✨
Some tips for working with handmade paper: - I thought the blue pumpkin would work best, but I actually had the greatest success with the Nikko G
- You'll have to reink more often because the paper absorbs more of the ink
- The nib did catch on the fibres as I was writing but I found that if I cleaned the nib off in regular intervals, this didn't bother me
- Embrace the imperfection! That's part of the beauty with handmade paper in my opinion

So cool to see this watercolor wreath and lettering by @inkandjo! You can find a link to the (surprisingly simple) tutorial in my profile!#Repost @inkandjo ・・・
I decided to add a little brush lettering (not my forte!) to this wreath I painted based off of @thepostmansknock's gift tag tutorial! Lots more brush lettering practice ahead of me!

I couldn't fall asleep last night because I kept designing and creating in my head, which kept me up for HOURS. This also means I'm going to be zombie-esque today. 🙈Does that happen to any of you? Would LOVE some tips and tricks on how I can be a better sleeper if any of you have any!

On another note, I finally found some time to paint after finishing up an envelope job and it felt oh-so-good! ❤️

So if you've been following along, you know I've been alluding to some big things happening here! So so stoked to introduce my pilot press, Leonard!! I dreamed of this happening but never thought that something like this could be part of my life
.
The art of letterpressing was what first opened my eyes to the world of paper goods and stationery and it was love at first sight. Ever since I learnt about letterpress, I've been fascinated by every element of the process and am excited to see where Leonard and I go together! . .

Pullin an @ordershewrotenyc today 😬 with this video. This was a test sample for a client who wanted to work on shimmer envelopes. I highly highly recommend testing before taking this on because the smooth surface can be tricky with ink and nib. You can see that I wasn't quite able to get as fine a line with my upstrokes so it's always good to test first!

You see those two painted people in the bottom right hand corner? That was my first time painting humans. That's the thing about this journey, it's constantly pushing me to try new things, constantly being challenged and constantly being uncomfortable. And that's part of why I love it so much. What makes YOU uncomfortable? . .

Woof. Things have been downright crazy the last week or so with both life and work hence my lack of posting on IG. But, I finally got my hands on some @fabulousfancypants paper and I did a quick doodle to get the feel of nib on handmade paper. It's definitely a bit tricky and takes some patience but I love the texture!

sister-requested piece before she leaves for her freshman year of college @ berkeley!!!!

For awhile now I've been wanting to do a shoutout series to my favorite letterers/artists/inspirations because this entire community is so talented and I'm humbled every time I look at my feed because I feel like I could never paint/letter like you all. With that said, one of the first ig lettering accounts I felt in love with is @artbysarahku! She's so so so talented and I love every single piece she posts. Her landscapes are amazing and her calligraphy is flawless?!! The florals on this piece are inspired by a recent post of hers (but they are 1/100th as beautiful as the ones she painted) 😆💕

Same verse as last time; lettering in this one is not so good

Reminder that theres always something to be grateful for!!

Haha the yellow and green look a bit strange 😳

my brain is full of Fischer esterification mechanisms and ir spectroscopy and I wish I could be painting right now

Could still use improvement on my loose florals...

so much work with lab final on Wednesday and prelab tmrw and lab report tues 😥OH and work every day after lab and moving in to new house on Wednesday too

I'm reading through Isaiah right now and this is one of my favorite verses at the moment

8 hour day of reviewing how to ambulate patients, oral care, using gurneys, meal assisting, emptying foley catheters, plus so many more things -- I passed my internship skills tests successfully today (and the coordinator even asked how my partner and I studied since we did so well) even though I was super worried because I didn't study until last minute PRAISE GOD also I look like a smurf in my bright blue scrubs

Peony painted on a card for my grandparents (first time painting one that isn't a loose/abstract floral)!! Random thought but flying and looking outside a plane makes you realize how small and seemingly insignificant you are BUT God still loves you as in Isaiah 46-49 and will never forget you isn't that crazy

inspired by @monvoirco's amazing florals

Things are kicking into high gear as we're deep into peak wedding season! I spent the weekend working on these place cards for an upcoming wedding and can't wait to share all the stationery that we created for this soft garden themed wedding. . .
