Floral watercolour and calligraphy baby updates

baby-heartbeat-edit I'm just going to put this out there: if you haven't checked out Lindsey Bugbee's blog, The Postman's Knock, you really should. She is so willing to share her knowledge and skills to help other people learn, and I have already learned so much from her.

This post comes from a combination of inspiration. Today I heard my baby's heartbeat for the first time, and I just had to put it down on paper.

It seemed a perfect opportunity to try out Lindsey's Watercolour Lettering tutorial I've been looking at for ages. I didn't quite get this watercolour and calligraphy combo finished (because I didn't scroll down enough and then got distracted by spaghetti bolognese), but it's a start and, as always, gave me the confidence to keep trying new things. I feel very lucky to be surrounded by such creative teachers like Lindsey.

So, break out the watercolours and get over to Lindsey's blog so you can learn to immortalise your own life moments in uniquely creative ways.
