Calligraphy (Learning a New Skill) : Week One

April 30, 2015

One of the goals I have is to be a lifelong learner and for 2015 I have at least two new skills I want to learn. One is modern calligraphy and the second is hand stitched embroidery, so during my week off school and my part-time job I decided to start learning. I purchased the supplies and got started. I know I have a long way to go but it is kind of relaxing making long flowing lines. I am really looking forward to buying ink in a fun color like neon pink, but since those are more permanent I’m going to wait till I cut down on how much ink I get on my hands. So for the next 5 weeks I’ll be sharing my practice and hopefully my progress.

If you are interested in learning too, I’m following the tutorial from Julie Blanner.

There are only so many times you can do loops and lines before you have to try something with a word. I’ve just started and I know I’ve got a long way to go but here is to five more weeks of practice!
