I am having sooooo much fun!!! I signed up for a class called "Calligra~Fun with Martha Lever and it is a wonderful class. She is a fantastic teacher with a lovely southern drawl that I love to listen to. She has been a calligrapher for over 25 years and she does fantastic work. Over the years, I have tried to study calligraphy on my own. Bought books, pens, and lots of lined paper, but it seems that without some direction, my attempts were rather ugly. So when I found out that Martha was going to teach her fun, relaxed style of letter forms, I jumped on it. I am so glad that I did!!
Here are a few of my attempts at it. Now remember, I have just learned this and have lots and lots of practice to do to get better at it.
This is in a small altered book that I am working on. I was a little afraid to put it on something that was permanent, but I told myself....go for it!! There is always gesso.......lol!!! Page isn't finished quite yet, but I like it.
Just a little practice and play on this sheet.....
Together we can feel unified and directed.
