Playing with Pens, Brush and Ink

Had a busy week with Boo celebrating his 7th birthday last Tuesday and Bellie celebrating her 2nd birthday last Friday. Birthday parties were last Friday in school and Saturday for family and friends.

I didn’t think I would have the opportunity for a post this week but I just needed the creative outlet. Decided to play with some of the new toys I bought the other weekend but never got to use until now.

Took out my practice notebooks for calligraphy – graphing notebook which I bought in Kinokuniya and a small drawing notebook from Saizen, Market Market.

I bought a Sailor Calligraphy brush pen from Scribe, SM Aura. I wasn’t particularly in love with the design but this was the only one they had available.

I liked what I was able to make so far though.
