January is wonderful because the year is fresh and you feel like this is the year you can do anything.
Instead of piling my plate full with a bunch of things I’m going to try adding one new habit at a time. My crafting challenge right now is coming from Dawn Nicole Designs. Her Happy Email Club is completely worth signing up for. That’s how I learned of her Spencerian Script Calligraphy Challenge.
I’ve been a fan of this style of writing every since I started looking at old census records and I’m delighted to see that there are tools for learning it again.
Todays exercise was pretty simple. I will be practicing on both paper and on my iPad using Procreate. Thanks Dawn, I know how to get her helpful worksheets into Procreate. There were several great tips specific to hand lettering you should check out.
By the way, Dawn also has a very sweet brush set that I highly recommend if you are a fan of the Tombow Fude. I wrote in orange today because I could. I was a little sad working on the paper in black ink after that.
Until next time…
