Well i have finally got around to sharing some of my work from my beginner calligraphy class ! The teacher Susan Nelson was such a sweetheart and had loads of patience. It was harder than i thought it would be but i see you really need to practice to perfect the strokes. I had fun though and thats all that matters right ?? Hoping to apply some of my new writing skills to my journalling and who knows what else !
Here are some of the little projects i made and some of my practice sheets.
The splattered piece in the background was fun to make we used acrylic paints splodged on and then combed around so thick grooves remained, when dry we heat foiled over the top so the foil adhered to all the raised bits, so cool ! We then started to cut up our sheet to make cards or bookmarks etc.
