Living an ART filled life…“Creativity is a God-given ability to take something ordinary and make it into something special. It is an openness to doing old things new ways…The creative spirit is part of our heritage as children of the One who created all things. And nurturing our creativity is part of our responsibility as stewards of God’s good gifts.” – Emilie Barnes, The Spirit of Loveline

My lettering is s-l-o-w-l-y improving through lots of practice. Thanks for sharing your practice, it helps inspire me to keep working at it. 🙂
Thanks for taking the time to connect with me Beth! I’ll bet if you look back at where you began, you’ll be encouraged! Don’t loose heart, I’ve been “practicing” for almost 40 years:)
Great practice idea!
Thanks so much Nancy!
Love your doodles. I can’t seem to get the right pen that will give me bold lines and thin ones. I use a thin pen and add the thickness- it looks messy to me and also some line are thicker than others.
Ci, You’re on the right track! My most use pens are Pigma Microns. I letter with a pencil first, then go over the lines I want to keep with a Micron 01 or 02…then, add detail with a finer tip (005). I “thicken some of the letters by doubling the lines in specific areas, like the curves or the downstrokes.
I use Micron 01 & 02 also. so I guess I’l continue to fine tune my calligraphy. thank you!
I am going to try and post a short video of the process for you!
