Filling in some journal pages





I have been missing my calligraphy nib so I have been going back into some journal pages that were ready for lettering to see if I could find a place for some lettering.  The top journal is a Strathmore Visual Journal with the bristol paper. It is smoother so it helps when I am using a pointed nib.

The bottom journal is one that I made out of cold press Arches watercolor paper. The "believe" was already there so I just decided to add to it.

The lettering is a "Martha variation" of a pointed pen calligraphy hand. I guess if it's anything it is a combination of pressurized Romans with a curly twist. Calligraphy speak there...

Also, I sent out the newsletter last night so hopefully all of you wonderful subscribers got it. Remember to look into your spam folder. I am not sure why that happens but some email programs will think that bulk emails are spam---and lots of the time they are.
But if you don't get it you can always go HERE to read all back issues.
Hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
