Change is inevitable Growth is optional As John Maxwell shares, your growth is up to you. As you continue on this journey called life, know that growth takes time… and often waaaay longer than we think. ? It requires of us consistent and accountable amounts of hard work, perseverance against the ingrained, and a deep faith through the pain and discomfort. Just as a seed struggles through the darkness, or the butterfly writhes within the cocoon, growth is not an easy process. Yet the tree that bears fruit from the seed that struggled, or that beautiful butterfly that soars above us, the growth pains can create long-lasting beauty that blesses many. Your dedication and commitment to growth will change lives, all those you encounter, now and for generations to come. This is a legacy you are creating with your daily choices… don’t ever give up, darling! ? I believe in you! Keep growing!

Trying so hard to get better at flourishing. It’s ridiculously difficult for me, but I don’t hate this! Wise words from the @seanwes podcast (go listen!!) . Pens used: @tombowusa Fudenosuke Hard Tip for the black letters, and Dual Brush Pens + waterbrush for the color. See how to get the effect by looking at my last post. ? #brittanyletters #the100dayproject #100letteringdays (26/100) #tombow #dndlettering #cb_brush #calligrabasics

?Love this life. #yolo ? To get this reverse ombré look using the @tombowusa Dual Tips: 1️⃣ Do your brush lettering in a light shade. I used 703. 2️⃣ Use a darker shade like 743 to shade the upper half of the downstrokes. 3️⃣ Use the colorless blender marker to blend them together. ??

I promise you, the waiting is the HARDEST part! I know and trust that the Lord will deliver on the promises He whispers in the quiet of the night. I just need to learn how to be patient and trust more fully. I feel His hands holding my heart but when you pray for patience, He will test your ability to have patience. (Anyone else ever experience that?)?? #jordannemarieloveslettering #shereadstruth #shespeakstruth #shepaintstruth #poppin #tombow #tombowusa #tombowfudenosuke #togetherweletter #30daysofbiblelettering #100daysproject

Waxing sentimental about my time in New York City and remembering how scared I was to take the plunge and move here. Now, as I prepare to leave it, I am still a little nervous (because I’m a nervous Nellie by nature) but, like, ?? IF I CAN MAKE IT HERE, I CAN MAKE IT ANYWHERE AMIRITE ??(sry for yelling) # Channeling some sort of 80’s geometric vibe and not hating it at all! This piece was done totally with @tombowusa Dual Brush Pens and a Fudenosuke soft nib (small black details) and edited in Snapseed to brighten that ish up!

I recently made two custom cards for Teacher Appreciation Week by blending some @tombowusa Dual Brush Pens. I used to want to be a teacher when I grew up. My grandmother was a teacher! And now in just a few short weeks I’ll be teaching my first workshop(s). Im not going to stop talking about how excited I am! Huge thanks and hugs to all the fabulous teachers who had to deal with me throughout my very long career as a student. You are all queens and kings in my book. (HA! Book! Get it?!) ??

A little #tbt action to my very first brush pen, handed to me by the sweet Phawnda Moore in an introductory calligraphy class. I was actually shocked when I first saw it, thinking, “This is just a marker. I signed up for a calligraphy class.” ? And you know what? I actually asked Phawnda if we could do pointed pen instead (although I didn’t know what it was called back then ?). She told me that was an advanced technique that would require extra instruction because of the tools and technique, on top of the already intensive lesson we would need as beginners. It wasn’t until a few MONTHS later that I began to embrace the brush pen. I kept at it, practicing and learning and sharing… Fast forward a year later, and here I am. I have brush pens spilling out of my ears. My husband actually told a guest at our house, “Yeah, we don’t have real pens here.” (The guest needed a simple ball point pen ?) #truestory ?What was your first calligraphy pen? (Doesn’t have to be a brush pen.) Did you love it? Hate it? Still use it to this day?

Picking right back up with my #hellotoshalettersAtoZ challenge! ✍?? H is for hi, hello, hey! Fun fact for ya: after graduating high school, I decided it was time to graduate from my @ hotmail email address too ?? I upgraded to gmail and went with something friendly. ?? That’s when Hello Tosha was really born. ✨ I was a wee 18 yr old, had a Nokia flip phone and listened to Dashboard Confessional on the reg ? I would have never guessed that I would start a business under that name 10?? years later. The name chose me, I guess.? #themoreyouknow ?✨ • ✍? Tombow Dual Brush Pen • I plan to letter my way through the alphabet, finding new and favorite ways to pen each letter. Requests and phrase/word suggestions are very welcome!
