It’s hard to believe July came to an end! But this means it’s time for another Inspired Calligraphy challenge. The reason behind this challenge is to encourage practicing daily and staying inspired.
The truth is our brains are wired for negativity. It is easier for us to be discouraged than to keep a positive mindset. That’s why it’s so important to continue surrounding ourselves with positivity. This month, Candice from @dashingletters and I are bringing the Inspired Calligraphy challenge back. The Inspired Calligraphy Challenge is a monthly list of inspirational quotes we put together to encourage your calligraphy or lettering.
Here is the list of prompts for this month!

Want to take part in the Inspired Calligraphy challenge?
I explain what a lettering or calligraphy challenge is in this post. If you want to know in detail, then check the blog post. Here is a quick summary of what you need to do to participate…
- Get the monthly list of prompts. You can get the monthly list of prompts here on my Instagram Page @vialdesigns or download it and print it from the link above. Feel free to repost the monthly prompt image to let others know you’ll be joining.
- Letter the quote of the day. We encourage you to set aside at least 30 mins every day to practice your lettering. Every day there will be a prompt so you can choose to create a lettering piece using the whole quote. Or you can also get creative by picking a word that stands out and using it to practice. The challenge is called Inspired Calligraphy, but you are welcome to use any lettering style or form of art you want.
- Share your work. Every time you participate, make sure you share your work on Instagram. Use the hashtag #InspiredCalligraphy and tag us @vialdesigns and @dashingletters so we can see your work.
- Take it a step further and reflect on the quote. When we are putting together the quotes for the challenge, we make sure they are meaningful. These are quotes to help you stay inspired and give you a boost of positivity in your everyday life. Once the lettered piece is done, make sure you display it.
Even if you don’t share your work on Instagram, keep it somewhere you can see it often. Having that constant reminder close to you will give you an added boost of positivity. You can also journal
Important Reminder about The Inspired Calligraphy Challenge…
This lettering challenge is NOT about perfection!
This challenge is about practicing and having fun while doing it.
It’s totally okay if you don’t share your work on social media. Just make sure you keep it and dated it. That way, you can come back to it later and see how much you’ve improved! I promise if you keep practicing, you will see the improvement in your work.
Let me know if you have any questions or have any quotes you’d like to see in the next month’s list of prompts.
Happy practicing and have a fantastic day!
