This is an amazing class. It's absolutely jam packed with information and tips to really take your lettering projects to the next level. This is by far the best lettering class that I've come across, anywhere. If you're comfortable with your lettering and you're looking for ways to add that little bit of extra to really add a bit of oomph, this is the perfect class to take. It covers things like flourishing your letters, laurels and flowers, banners, and even heat embossing your lettering (which is something I've been wanting to do since learning heat embossing). She also shows you how to do your lettering inside of a basic shape so that your quote is shaped however you choose. This is an awesome course that I'll be coming back to, again & again.

Hey hey! I'm Peggy. I'm native to the Pacific Northwest and I love all things creative. From a young age I was dipping everything I could into the arts. I've dabbled in quite an abundance of varieties, such as ballet, fire dancing, crafting, graphic design, traditional calligraphy, hand lettering, painting with acrylics and watercolors, illustrating, creative writing, jazz, you name it. If it's something involving being artistic, I've probably cycled through it a time or two (or 700).
