Recap: Nov Lettering Challenge on Instagram

Screen Shot 2015-12-10 at 3.03.53 pmHello everyone! I have been a little bit busy and hence, this space feels a bit neglected! However, I’m back now. I thought I’d recount with a little challenge I created over on instagram (@surelysimpleblog). It’s a lettering challenge – search #surelysimplelettering to see how it went.

Initially, I created this little challenge purely for me to practice lettering- but it’s awesome that a lot of people joined in! It was so inspiring to see everyone’s perspective and spin on the prompts. It’s so much cooler to practice lettering with so many people- I hope everyone who participated had fun! I certainly did!

So, here’s what I made for the November #surelysimplelettering challenge:Instagram Lettering Challenge via Surely SimpleRecap: Nov Lettering Challenge on Instagram Recap: Nov Lettering Challenge on Instagram Recap: Nov Lettering Challenge on Instagram Recap: Nov Lettering Challenge on Instagram Recap: Nov Lettering Challenge on Instagram Recap: Nov Lettering Challenge on Instagram Beautiful – in acronym formRecap: Nov Lettering Challenge on Instagram Recap: Nov Lettering Challenge on Instagram Recap: Nov Lettering Challenge on Instagram Recap: Nov Lettering Challenge on Instagram
