Hand Lettering: Water Brush 103

Hello everyone!

I know it’s been quite some time since I posted an article in this series.Β  I didn’t forget about my Water Brush series, I just switched platforms and forgot to tell you all!Β  I apologize for that! πŸ™

Several weeks ago, I switched this series over to my Instagram Stories.Β  Every Wednesday, I post 5ish lettering videos of my water brush practice on my Story for my followers to enjoy!

Last week, I started working on numbers and will finish up numbers 5-9 on my Instagram Stories tomorrow afternoon.

Once I finish working on numbers, I’m going to move on to uppercase letters.Β  After that, I’ll move on to practicing full words!

Follow me on Instagram so you never miss a minute of my lettering journey!

You can follow me on Instagram @pinkbowstwinkletoes πŸ™‚

I’ve been having a great deal of fun recording these videos and hope you all enjoy them too!

Happy Lettering!

DIY Confetti – Easy and Fun!

Hi everyone!

I have a fun and SUPER easy craft for you today!

I’ve been wanting something to add a little pizazz to my Instagram photos recently, so I decided to invest in some confetti.Β  I knew I wouldn’t be able to buy exactly what I wanted, so I decided to make my own!Β  Making my own definitely didn’t save me money, but that’s okay!Β  I got exactly what I wanted!

IMG_4007Supplies:

  • Paper punches
  • Cardstock
  • Scissors

IMG_4016Simply use the punches to cut out lots and lots and lots of your desired confetti shapes!

I found it the easiest to start with a whole sheet of cardstock, punch out a complete row, and then cut that strip away.Β  In the end, you’ll end up with a bunch of punched out strips like the ones above!Β  You could also cut the strips and then punch.Β  Whatever floats your boat!

IMG_4051I went to town and punched out lots of different shapes!

I bought my punches during JoAnn’s most recent scrap booking sale, so they we’re out of a few punches that I wanted. πŸ™

I still managed to get my hands on a few fun ones!Β  As you can see, I got a medium heart, a dove, and a small circle.Β  I also got a small heart.Β  I just haven’t made any confetti with it yet.

IMG_4036Look how cute! Doesn’t it just jazz up the picture?! πŸ™‚

Happy Crafting!
