Calligraphy Letters? No Probs Baby

March 22, 2014

Have you ever wanted to have crack-a-lack at doing calligraphy?

I know that you can get kits and books and heaps of online tutorials.

How would you like a really simple version,
that will get you writing
– yep you read that correctly WRITING –
your own place cards (wedding)
door sign (bedroom door)
or even a title page (homemade recipes)?

Here’s a couple of tutes,
that will show you how just doing it
is all the skills you require.

Here’s my attempts.

Not so appalling is it?

I panicked,
when trying to think of words to write!

I suppose if I practice a bit
I could actually get good at it.

Will you have a crack?
I’d love to know if you do :D

Sorry just had to share this – it’s just a tad funny!

Font Fetish – I Love the Look of Letters

January 6, 2014

I have always loved Fonts.

Being a calligrapher from a young age (11+)
how could I not be in love
with the lines, and swirls and connections of different fonts.

It’s so cool.

So imagine my delight
upon stumbling across
a Periodic Table of Fonts.

Oh Em Gee
