This has been ringing in my head the past few weeks. I have now listened to @msrachelhollis “girl, wash your face” twice & can honestly recommend it to every human. I cried at the gym listening to the last chapter.. Imma believer *cue smash mouth* but man, I have lots to work on. There are so many beautiful, spontaneous, messy magical moments to be had & no time for comparison.
Swipe to see the process!⠀

I almost missed it! Happy World Calligraphy Day! I love calligraphy. It is relaxing and meditative to practice. And for hand lettering and typography, calligraphy provides a great foundation to understand why letters are made the way they are. Wanna know why the thicks and thins are the way they are, even when dealing with the serifed Times New Roman font? Calligraphy rules. It all STEMS from calligraphy, pun intended. ⠀
Ok so I think I like this better. I selected the pink layer of inspire then tapped on the black drop shadow layer below and tapped clear. That is what you see in pic 2. Not exactly what I was looking for but closer. So repeated the process with the new lighter drop shadow and you see that in pick 3 still not quite what I wanted. Because it is a pattern brush it didn’t totally clear the inside of the lettering. So finally I just duplicated the second clear attempt and erased the inside of the lettering manually. Then it was very close to what I wanted but I still duplicate the pink inspire layer and placed it on top of all the layer and set that layer opacity at 75% and the end result is in pic 1
I do like it much better. Thank you to @sewgran47 for suggesting to use the clear method on the drop shadow layer.
in honor of tonight’s #RHONY finale and in anticipation of one the most compelling and emmy-worthy performances of ramona’s career, i present to you my all-time favorite real housewives tagline ever! 🍎
“And taking the hand of the child, he said to her, "Talitha koum", which translates as, "Little girl, I say to you, get up."” — Mark 5:41
🌱🌷🌾 Finally have something new available for the first time since moving! 🙌 Also thinking this would make a great mug somewhere down the line 😉 ☕️

Here’s the truth: Life is going to have its ups and downs.
We cannot stop bad things from happening, but we can control how we react to them. We can control our mindset amidst the hardships of life. We can consciously choose to be positive—even when it would be easier to give up hope.
This past year, I've been reminded that a grateful heart is a magnet for miracles. In facing brain surgery, loss, and uncertainty—I search for the reasons to be thankful. ♥️ #communityovercompetition
