Ok... so I really LOVE hand written Calligraphy!
|Vintage calligraphy set I bought.|
Way back when I was a die hard fan of Harry Potter, my mother bought be a gorgeous black quill. Along with the quill she purchased a "learn calligraphy kit" that I kind of got into, but as a tween, I had a short attention span. I have kept the kit and have it on my bookshelf. It reminds me of the fun times my mother and I had enjoying Harry Potter together. Ever since then I have been in love with calligraphy but haven't practiced much until lately.
She even has an online workshop called "I Still Love Calligraphy"
which I am saving up for! I am so bummed that I found her AFTER we move away from Utah. Maybe I can coordinate sometime with a trip back home and go to one of her live workshops! I will be honest. I miss home but I am trying to keep myself busy. Oklahoma isn't so bad.
She sells T H E most gorgeous stamps!
and even sells custom stationary! I love her creative photography of her work! Go check them out.
and I just loooove this backdrop for a wedding!
She sells Stamps too!
I love reading over Molly Suber Thorpe' Blog
Sheesh! There is soooo much inspiration out there!
I have been working on finding my own style.
I think its not bad for just starting to learn how to work with the quill. I used a nib that I bought at an antique shop last week. I shot some photos of the beautiful calligraphy tools.
I really need to blog about how to turn your 50 mm lens into macro lens! It is so much fun! Well I am off to study the letter b!
(I am trying to find different styles and practice each letter and studying from the pros!)
