Bye for now...sending you a heart...




I am excited because, as I have been saying all week, I will be driving down to Orlando in the morning for a week at IAMPETH-International Association of Master Penman, Engrossers and Teachers of Handwriting
I was picking out a chunky journal to take for the area where members can display what they have been working on---and of course I will "survey the land" before I put mine out there. Things might look like this-- YIKES! so a chunky journal(which does contain lots of original calligraphy) just might not fit in. Well see---I have never been to one of these Master Penman conferences so I am not sure what to expect.
So this little heart from the backgound pieces was going into the chunkey journal and I decided to write a little quote on it. This calligraphy is buy no means the standard of which I will be seeing and re-learning this weekend---but it's fun and quick and easy.
Have a wonderful week and hopefully I can post some pictures as I go along.

Now, you just know I'm going to have an opinion about the link you provided. :-)
Their style is formal, wonderful, and certainly has its place as a beautiful art form. BUT your journaling is creative, intensive, personal, and appealing to the eye.
You are a multi-talented artist who can do whatever she pleases.
So, don't let anyone intimidate ya, kid!
Hugs for a good trip.
Watch out for that opportunity I've been running my big mouth about...
Love Ya ~

The link you gave has beautiful penmanship but I would take your character and style over stiff and formal anyday. You have NOTHING to worry about there. Have fun and let us know everything!
