BIG News in 2020!

The new year is a time for reflection, resolutions and turning over a new leaf. Let's try to sit quietly every day with pens and paper. Making time for yourself is important for your well-being. 
I started a new Kelly Creates Creative Journal and have decided to keep things super simple with a year long theme of 'leaves.' Probably I will use only my black Kelly Creates Fineliners and won't add much color. 
Our family Christmas holiday was in Nicaragua where my brother lives with his family. We celebrated in a tropical climate and enjoyed the relaxing quiet town with a day trip to Granada, a small city filled with color and character.
The BIG HAPPY news I have to share is the release of my 2020 Kelly Creates Watercolor lettering line! I am beyond excited to announce this and it was so hard to keep it a secret. You can click HERE to see the entire collection...which will be available in February!
Celebrate your creativity in 2020 by learning to paint pretty letters! My new book The Art of Watercolor Lettering will help you get started.  To order on Amazon! CLICK HERE

After designing the Inspirational Bouncy Connections worksheets, I thought I would offer a sample of one page!  Practice with your large brush tip pens, like the Dream pens, and small brush tips, like the Kelly Creates Multicolor Small Brush pens.  (NOTE: This worksheet is available on my website as a free download.
