Hi, I'm Gillian. An artist and mother. I am in love with silverbane/Reignson . We met on DeviantART in 2004. We live together in Indiana with our son. I have a dream of some day owning my own studio/gallery that looks like the interior of the 11th Doctor's TARDIS. I love Science Fiction, Fantasy, British Comedies, gaming, and anything with a bad sense of humor. I am obnoxious. I write long winded responses. I love CSS.
If you would like prints of my art, visit my Etsy store and send me a convo.

June Calligraphy Challenge

Fri Jul 1, 2016, 9:37 AM by GillianIvy:icongillianivy:
I really enjoyed the challenge and thankful I was joined by Kjherstin, pica-ae , and ImportAutumn for this project.  You guys kept me going and inspired me to create more every day.  If I had done this challenge alone, I may not have finished it.  I hope you all
enjoyed this as much as I had.

Most of the works have been shared on our Pinterest Board - June Calligraphy Challenge.  But for those who do not have a Pinterest, I have a collection in my favorites, as well as a folder of my own contributions - Say It With Words.  I'd like to take a moment to highlight some of my favorites from this past month.

Day 22-23 - I Do Believe by GillianIvy

Thank you for all the faves, comments and encouragement!  Perhaps we'll do this challenge again next year.  I hope more people will participate.  Even if just for one day.  I loved seeing all the creations and every artist should challenge themselves to create something out of their comfort zone or practice what they do best.  I plan to do more challenges in the future.  I'll be participating in #Inktober and will be watching for others as well.


I love the cake designs of ginkgografix and this one is suprememly beautiful and unique.  And it is being voted on.  You can vote daily!  Please do!
