...and He will direct your paths
I have felt like being a calligrapher these past few days finding all these pieces that needed lettering on them. On this one I didn't plan anything as you can see because I ran out of room. This is on Arches Text wove paper (love Text wove!) with walnut ink. Yummy surface to write on. Yum yum...I used Dr. Martin's Bleedproof white.
Actually I am making another big chunky book with all my left over snippets and scraps. Some of the scraps just need...something...This is actually a very old scrap that I made in Judy Melvin's class many years ago. Most of you might not know who Judy Melvin is but if you are a calligrapher out there, you'll probably know! She is one of the superstar calligraphers out there and has been for many years. I love her and we were delighted to have her come here to Jacksonville.She stayed in my house so I really got to know her and pick her creative brain! It was wonderful but it was many years ago. I would love a refresher course and would love to see her again.
