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

Hello October!

Can you believe it's October? I have really enjoyed spending more time at home the past few weeks. And I have been busy filming YouTube videos about my new releases.

I'm really excited about the new Beauty of Lettering Quote Pad. Not only do you get to practice tracing quotes, you also can design your own final projects with pretty lettering card stock paper included. Click HERE for an affiliate shopping link.
I just had to share this amazing colouring page illustrated by Lindsay Ostrom and coloured by my friend Betty Hung using my Aqua Brushes! Click HERE to learn more about colouring and artistic techniques from Betty. Click HERE to follow Lindsay, who is an amazing hand lettering artist and illustrator....she also teaches hand lettering! 
My workshops in September were close to home... in Calgary at the Great Canadian Scrapbook Carnival and in Edmonton at the Calligraphic Society. If you haven't joined your local calligraphy society, please consider it. You can meet like minded letter lovers and usually find wonderful resources too.

I have been pushing my creative comfort zone and trying to do more hand lettering. This month I am playing with different lettering styles with a Halloween theme and sharing them as tutorials on my Facebook Page "Kelly Creates Studio." If you're on Facebook, then LIKE & FOLLOW my page so you don't miss out on these fun LIVE broadcasts, which I will do about twice week when I'm at home. 
Our Facebook group Kelly Creates Art & Calligraphy has had so much fun with the October theme Halloween!  Come join us and click HERE to participate in a friendly, creative community!
For another creative challenge, I also decided to participate in "INKTOBER" this month and have been sharing my daily sketches in my Instagram Stories. @jakeparker is the fearless leader behind this annual October artistic challenge. I'm using the daily words as part of my sketches with calligraphy and hand lettering combined and really enjoying the process.
Right now I'm in Phoenix and filmed a brush lettering class for Scrapbook.com, which is a fantastic online store for ALL Kelly Creates products (and they ship international too!) Click HERE to check out Scrapbook.com.
