My calligraphy class pic's

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.


  1. I took a class years ago and still remember some of the important parts, but yes, you have to practice a lot to be any good at it. Just another art form. Yours looks very good.

  2. I've dabbled a little too in this wonderful writing art. I just adore it. Love the practice pieces, looks like your class was worthwhile. I also like the textural piece and the way you've placed your sliced segments onto the card. Thanks for sharing this newest journey with your friends.

  3. Your practice sheets are looking good Michelle. I love the 'M' you did. I have just started doing the zentangles on monograms and maybe the two could be combined. Keep on with the calligraphy, it is really beautiful.
