So now that I got everyone excited about an intermediate modern calligraphy workshop and then shortly thereafter got you frustrated that you were no where near Cleavland, Ohio to attend said workshop, we thought we would bring back the excitement with a giveaway! Just like there are many, many beginner kits out there in the world, this one is sure to be one of our faves (but of course), there isn’t many intermediate kits. Calligrapher Lindsey Buck has done a bang up job of putting hers together, housed in a wooden tray with a charmingly illustrated sleeve you’ll find some excellent goodies to take your lettering to the next level.
Your intermediate kit will include the following:
1 wooden nib holder
1 empty bottle + gouache tube of paint (gray)
Pipette for mixing with gouache paint
1 gold ink
Words + Phrases sheet
Hand-drawn, how-to instructions
Digitizing Calligraphy how-to instructions
And to sweeten the goodness we think we should absolutely include our very own Foto Rx | L25 Paper to Pixel Photoshop actions set! Word on the street amongst the lettering cognoscenti is it is the best thing to happen to cleaning up lettering since well Photoshop. We are biased and those who own it now obviously are too, but we know you’ll love it as well!
Firstly, I want to preface this giveaway by adding please, please don’t enter if you don’t plan on claiming the prize! It happened with our last giveaway, the amazing Maybelle even took time to letter the winning quote, we sent email after email and no answer. We are busy bees and (I’m a tired mama) so if I have to hunt you down, I will be choosing another winner and if I have to hunt that winner down than I will just keep the prize for myself (as she rubs her hands together in the most villainous of gestures). No, seriously, make it easy on us please, make sure you have an updated email we can contact you at, or check back in a week from now or check our Instagram feed next Tuesday, the winner most certainly could be you!
To enter to win answer the following question:
What skills do you wished you possessed?
I have about a million of these I could list but singing would be up there, never ask me to sing….
Winner will be announced Tuesday, September 22, 2015. For additional chances to enter Pin the image and use the hashtag #besottedwiththehive Good luck!
