A warm "Hello" to new subscribers... and "Welcome Back" to everyone else!

Hello Fall!

I've spent the last few weeks in Arizona working and relaxing. I've been determined to make time to just be creative and play and learn every morning. I call this dedicated art time my "Morning Meditation." A big hug to my sweet friend Crystal who told me to do this every day. 
Finding a balance in my hectic work and travel schedule is tricky. I really needed this time to recharge and just play artistically, with paint and ink mostly. 
Always learning.... that is one of my life philosophies. I invested in some art books and am studying new techniques with watercolor paint and improving my skills with drawing and sketching.
I have also participated in InkTober for the 3rd year in a row. I'm sharing my sketches in my Instagram and Facebook stories. I'm not confident about my drawing skills but this challenge is pushing me to grow and trust the process.
My Facebook Halloween Hand Lettering "Boo" Camp was a TON of fun...and we played with lots of different creepy and cute lettering styles. Leading up to Halloween, I am hosting Facebook LIVE Halloween Hand lettering sessions usually on Tuesday or Thursday evenings. Click HERE to follow my Facebook Page "Kelly Creates Studio.
I am all rested up for the next 3 workshops in 3 countries in 30 days! My upcoming workshops in the next few months are international....I will be teaching at PaperFest in URUGUAY end of October, I will be teaching at Art from the Heart in ENGLAND end of November, and then I will be in SWEDEN at CiLi in Papers beginning of December.

TIP OF THE MONTH: The overturns are often overlooked because they seem 'easy' to practice. But try this exercise of alternating upstrokes and overturns and space them exactly the same distance apart. It's surprisingly difficult.
