guest artist - sybillevz

sybillevz is on the flourish forum and this is from her instagram. she chooses one item of news each day to letter and then posts it on instagram. many of them are very fun. in her blurb at the top, she says they are *silly.* personally, i do nt think it is silly to fight off a black bear. you can click on each image to see comments. her pointed pen skill will be an inspiration to anyone who wishes to do fine pointed pen work including flourishing.

this is the link to her IG page

this is her website
where you can link to her blog.
you can also see some envelopes on her page marked *galeries*

looks to me like it is all in french (although the comments on IG seem to be in english - she seems to be belgian. i did a little research and found this:
Belgians are made up of two main linguistic and ethnic groups; the Dutch-speakers (called the Flemish) and the French-speakers (mostly Walloons), as well as a third tiny but constitutionally recognized group from two small German-speaking areas.

honestly, i do not know how anyone gets anything done any more. i am vigilant about not going to IG or twitter or snapchat or the next one that i do not even know about. the list of icons that are available for social media is wider than my 30-inch screen and that's w-i-d-e.


  1. Love her style. Love her colors. Love her treatment of double ascenders. Dislike that I now have another Instagram page to check fairly regularly, thanks Jean. I mostly avoid the computer for it is an insatiable time eater, I have more important things to do. After scrolling through her Instagram it looks like she uses watercolors to achieve those beautiful colors.

  2. Think of it as practice for when we are so old we can't drive around and are stuck in assisted living (or worse) and we will need our computer and surfing skills to keep us entertained.
