Inspiration Thursday: Handlettering and Vlogs

Inspiration Thursday

Whenever I get to Thursday, I just feel like I need some extra inspiration to get me to Friday. This is what is getting me through today!

I’ve been on YouTube non-stop again. This time, it’s a different genre! I’ve been watching a lot of creativity videos specifically on hand lettering and calligraphy.

Here are some recent Instagram posts I found that I loved and made me really want the Aquash Watercolour Brush:

The second Instagram picture is by a woman who goes by Teela or everytuesday online and she also has great YouTube channel. Here’s her Aquash Brush tutorial:

The other thing I’ve been watching in YouTube had been messydownunder, or Jessica Lovelace, specifically her vlogs. I think I like them because they’re real and raw and it feels like I’m watching a friend’s vlog. I watched all of them in chronological order, so it feels like I went through her life as she lived them. This video is the start of her vlog playlist, but she seems to be missing a couple videos from the list. I went back and watched them all. I’m a weirdo! She made me really want to start a vlog, and get back to creating, so maybe I will this weekend!

Inspiration Thursday: Lotta YouTube!

I have been absolutely obsessed with YouTube lately, and I’ve been watching a lot of vlogs (and makeup videos and haul videos and DIY videos and you get the idea) and yesterday I basically watched all of Cydnee Black‘s vlogs and some of her makeup videos. (I reposted one of her pictures for my #womancrushwednesday yesterday.)

I think this video is one of my favourites of hers because all of her makeup tutorials are great but this one inspired me and makes me think she’s so sweet and down-to-earth. It also made me think about what I want to post about, because I really do love planner flip-throughs and vlogs but I never had the confidence to film one, and this made me rethink my frame of mind.

Here’s a totally different video that I loved watching recently! I’ve been doodling recently, nothing to the extent of this but sometimes I’ll get really into a doodle (like a weirdo) and the way she draws out fractals reminds me of the weird obsessive nature I kind of get into inbthose situations. Watching this made me really want to get out some graph paper and draw!

First some creativity inspiration! I love JetPens so much! Their website is amazing but they also make awesome product videos! This one has totally gotten me wanting to try to take up painting again even though I really, really suck at it:

And here’s some happiness inspiration I found on Type Gang:

Love it, and love the lettering style!
