Well, it’s the last day of January–end of the month and end of my Phrase A Day endeavor. Sadly, what I’d hoped to achieve with this personal challenge did not necessarily happen.
I’d wanted to learn more about the Procreate app, to explore and try some different writing styles. Unfortunately, having been sick for most of the month, I could only manage to squeak out a few here and there in their somewhat traditional sense.
Don’t get me wrong, practicing writing with the iPad Pro 10.5 did help, but I had wanted to get more out of the app to see what it could do. I wanted to take a class and practice….whatever. That was my point for the Phrase A Day. But being sick and for so long…shees…not on the agenda. What’s also sad is that I could have used that ‘in-bed’ time to do some reading, but all I wanted to do was something mindless, like tv. I couldn’t comprehend looking at words. ;)
So with tomorrow being February 1 (what???), I thought it might be fun to do a phrase that goes along with the love month.
Here’s today’s Phrase A Day.
I will continue to do more writing. I really like writing some of those bigger phrases and lyrics. I’m also thinking I need to set aside one day a week for iPad creativity–whether it be writing, learning more about Procreate, learn to watercolor on it, or anything else I might be fancied by.
One of the big things I mull over is, do I want to learn modern calligraphy? So many people do it and therefore many projects look the same. I love how it looks, but I don’t know that I want to be like everyone else, ya know? I like unique handwriting. That being said, I look at the learning part of modern calligraphy like how ice skaters used to do those compulsary skills in the olympics–like tracing around on the figure 8. Remember that? The practice and form. I think it can be a good thing, but then again, I’m a free spirit. I don’t like conforming. haha
So who knows where this path will lead me. All I do know is that you will get to come along for the ride as I go down the path. :) I’ll also share some ‘what I’ve learned’ moments as well.
