    This worksheet is another knockout from Lindsey! While I haven’t worked through the entire worksheet just yet, I had to stop and write a review because this flourishing worksheet is just so much fun! If you’re worried that it will be too hard, as always, Lindsey breaks it down, step by step and has even provided a free video lesson of the Listening Bluebird which is extremely helpful, so don’t miss that!

    This flourishing worksheet is a great way to relax while practicing your pointed pen and ink skills. Whether for a project, to improve your flourishing or stroke contrast, or just to have fun, you don’t want to miss this one!

    I know I will be using this for a long time to come and it has already inspired me to try flourishing projects of my own. The practice you gain from this will help build the skills and confidence that you need to branch out into other silhouettes which is a different challenge, but really rewarding!

    Thanks, Lindsey! I’ve really enjoyed this worksheet so far and look forward to the next one.
