I wanted to share the May Handlettering Challenge with you!
What Is The Challenge?
It’s a good one. 🙂
Several months ago I had a ridiculous idea to do a pen review every day of the month. I am constantly getting asked to do a full review of certain pens and I thought committing to one a day would give me just the head start that I needed (and maybe get through half of my pens in my pen collection?!).
I was talking to a lettering friend about this idea and we got to brainstorming…
What if we made it into a monthly challenge?!
That seemed like the perfect solution for you, my pen-loving friends! It wouldn’t just be ME creating a bazillion pen review videos. It would be ALL OF US sharing our crazy pen stash!
So fun, right?!
The idea is that every day we assign one brush pen/marker and share lettering using that pen each day!
On my part, you’re going to get a little mini-review of these pens. I have already posted the first one on my YouTube channel and you will see lots of lettering using these pens over on Instagram.
On your part, just share your lettering using any of the pens you want (or all of them!) on the assigned days. There will be a giveaway going on over on Instagram as well! Details will be coming shortly, but you can get a hint from the prompt photo below.
How To Join?!
First, screenshot or save the photo below!
Then, simply join in whenever you can! If you have every pen, create something every day using the pen prompt. If not, that’s ok! Share the ones that you already have. And if you only have a couple of favorite pens, that’s ok! Choose your favorite pen and share a bit of why you love it in your caption.
Share the photo to Instagram and use the hashtag #penadaychallenge. You can also tag Sarah & myself in your actual photo If your account is private, we sadly won’t be able to see your work because of the Instagram restrictions so if you are wanting others to see your work, you may consider creating a second account for your hand lettering and artistic creations!
I am so excited to see what you come up with! Make sure to let us know what you love/don’t love about the products you use each day (or any opinions that you may want to share!). My hope is that by the end of the month, the hashtag #penadaychallenge will become an amazing resource for us to go to if we’re curious about a certain product or want to see it used in hand lettering!
Kind of like our own special brush lettering pens amazon-style review section, right?!
So fun! I hope you’ll join me and can’t wait to see your work!
