The quote "A fearless heart is a brave heart" is from Thupten Jinpa and was uttered at his book reading in the Amstelkerk in Amsterdam last month. And that actually set the theme, for the month of May was filled with compassion, a few sunny days at the beach and I attempted to see things in another way. With this months' lay out I kept things simple but I actually forgot to take pictures of the process of this month, though I do have a shot of all the materials I used.
The color scheme of the layout is blue, pink and purple., the colors I used most this month. I used the 365 stamps from sakuralala, memento dew drops, tombow markers, faux postage stamp rubber stamps and a few fountain pens: parker 45 blue with Private Reserve Daphne blue, Franklin Christoph Pocket 66 with Sailir Kingdom Note Pasanius Versicolor (I wrote most of the page with that pen) and the delta dolce vita undersize with a custom orange mix.
Looking at the layout and my activities in My, I see that I forgot to blog about my hand lettering workshop I did at Lola Luid.
A fun fact: the location is situated at my old high school, the Mondriaan Lyceum. The old school building is now being housed by various artistic people selling their wares, or just using the space (class room) as their work space. So fun! A lot more fun then when I went to school there for sure! Some more fun pictures of that day:
The entrance of the old school building. So much green, I like it!
Entrance hall with a lunch/open work space location.
Map of all the classrooms and people/small companies in them.
Some fun drawings on a wall in a class room.
There was a flea market going on in the hallways when I was there. This saturday the 18th there is going to be another edition.
The workshop was given by Handletters.nl and it was held in my old physics class room :)
Results of the grocery list hand lettering of the workshop attendees. Mine is the third one from the top, seen from left to right.
And while it was a tad bit weird being in class in my old high school again, it definitely was a super fun day :)
I've done some more hand lettering this month (June) and I will write about that in another post (before the month is over, hopefully).
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
