The good, bad, and ugly…
I finished all 30 prompts.

Since I was working on a small section of a notepad, I was able to tuck it into my planner and keep it portable.Which even kept me practicing at a family camp and the emergency room.
I used a very limited number of pens throughout the month (my Fudenosuke soft tip brush pen, 3 sizes of Staedtler Pigment liners, and my Tombow AirPress pen while at the ER), and managed to draw out a multitude of variations, proving to my pen-loving self that I don’t need every pen, just a few trusty and reliable tools!

My favorite was definitely day 30, when I had the opportunity to write many of YOUR names!
Thank you so much for coming on this journey with me. You all make sharing my passions a true blessing!

Keep moving forward!

I hope you’ll join in for the July challenge.
