Good evening from Soggy England! Here is tonight's #SunshinethruJuly prompt with a little video. I had to speed it up rather a lot in order to fit it in! The first half I sketched out to figure out the layout, then did the rest 'off-the-cuff' so to speak. But I'm pretty proud of myself for being able to do this to be honest. Hopefully this will be the first of many!

iPad lettering fun for #sunshinethrujuly this evening - yay! .
Today has been a crazy day. If you saw my story yesterday, you'll have seen that the Mister and I have been searching for a home together. Well... after a major disappointment last month -long story- we finally found an amazing little home yesterday and ALL BEING WELL 🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻🤞🏻we will be moving in the next month. I'm so excited, but trying really hard not to be as we've been in this position before but have ended up very disappointed. .
Today has been filled with trying to sort things out and deal with all the #adulting stuff that has to be done before we know if the house is definitely ours. So it has been really nice to chill out this evening and just doodle on the iPad. This is what I came up with for today's prompt. .
How has YOUR Hump Day been? .

I briefly mentioned opening an @etsy shop in one of my stories the other day. Slowly but surely I'm adding more bits and pieces, including these custom embossed slate wall/door hangings. Lots of big plans for this little venture, but for now 'slow and steady!' .

Learning with my new (super iridescent) @daler_rowney acrylic inks and paint brush. The blue one is so pretty but I really needed to do another layer on 'brighter'. .

For #sunshinesunday we have Mr Albert Einstein sharing his awesome wisdom with us☺️ I love this quote so much. Decided to use the signo pens that I wrote about on my blog tonight! They are oh so good❤️

So I'm at not home this evening and I totally had a 'doh' moment and left my Apple Pencil behind. No lettering for #sunshinethrujuly from me this evening! So here is a doodle I did a couple of days ago. And I get more time to work on the new xkimcreatesx blog! #silverlinings .
.
So what was the #highlight of your week? Mine was getting my very first commission since opening my etsy store! More details and pics will be shared soon😃.

Something a little bit out of character for me for today's #SunshineThruJuly challenge prompt. Does anyone else try everything they usually do (style, technique, colours) and feel like they just aren't working for you in that moment? This was one of those times. So I figured I'd scale things back a little, choose a colour that is usually out of my comfort zone (although I love yellow, I rarely use it) and dial back the flourishing and swirly/bouncy letters. And even though it felt very different to be doing something like this... it felt very ME too. .
.
What have YOU tried to do in a different way recently? Have you had a good Hump Day? I really enjoyed mine and tomorrow I finally get my glasses which will hopefully help with the eyesight and light-sensitivity problems I've been having. Yay! 🤓🤓🤓

Oops! I got the honest and silly the wrong way around🙈but I had loads of fun using my coloured pencils and doing a physical post! This is the prompt for Day 10 of #SunshineThruJuly by Martha @theprintedpie and myself. .

Today's #sunshinesunday prompt for #sunshinethrujuly sees me attempting a repeating floral pattern on Procreate... I'm not super happy with this but the Mister nodded his head as he went by earlier... so my most important critic (after myself) has deemed it okay😂😂 .
.
Today has been a very busy day of sorting out the admin behind the new xkimcreatesx blog, Twitter and Facebook accounts. So a very good kind of busy! What have YOU been up to today?!

This weekend has been exciting! You may have seen a sneaky peek of one little announcement that will soon be posted but.....(drum roll please) I now have a BLOG! The link is in my bio.
.
. 🙊Eep!
.
It's still small and humble, but the plans for it are pretty exciting! It will have the voice of someone still very much learning Lettering, Calligraphy, and all the wonderful things surrounding these hobbies. It will cover my journey starting out and follow me through the process, the ups and the downs etc, and HOPEFULLY offer advice (probably learned from doing things wrong) on the things that have worked for me. It'll have things I'm learning, tips I've picked up and various other goodies, told from a Relative Beginner. I would LOVE it if you joined me on the journey and shared your experiences with me. .
.
I really want to keep the spirit of #SunshinethruJuly and #sunshinethrumay running through the blog. With positivity and community vibes being a very strong influence. .
That being said... the first blog post is to do with something that I've had a lot of questions about lately - The gorgeous metallic pens that I use as shown in the second picture! Please go and check it out.... and if you would be so kind as to leave me some feedback... that would be super awesome!!

Hmmmm... I definitely need practice with flourishing🙈🙈 I really wanted to try this tho, after seeing @gracecallidesigns using this technique on procreate to create this effect. I love this crazy blending in the lettering. Not too proud of the style tho, but practice makes perfect! The prompt is from #SunshinethruJuly by myself and @theprintedpie
