Beautiful Scribbles

I’ve always wanted to make my own fancy lettering but I’m not that interested in formal calligraphy. Last Saturday, I had the opportunity to attend a basic calligraphy workshop by Ink Scribbler (http://www.inkscribbler.com) where we learned freestyle calligraphy.

We started out practicing on pencil and later on our very own pens with flexible nib.

Later, we traced some quotes and made our own cards.

Of course, I had ink blots on my hands. But I’m used to that – mark of an artist!

Here’s my journaling card for my Project Life for this week’s page. I asked my Alexis, my sisters and my friend to sign my card.
