When I was little learning cursive wasn't an option to learn or not, but as time passed it seems to be an art form that has faded. I am not a big fan of my handwriting, I feel like I have a million different versions of my own font! Depending on the mood, pen or how rushed I am; it can be neat and sweet or messy and unreadable. I know how important journaling is in your scrapbook, so I usually type or print out my journaling, but its also important to scrapbook your own handwriting! Calligraphy has been hitting the spot light lately and I love the way each calligrapher has their own style to such a beautiful art form.
I have decided to take this time to not only get more confident about my own writing but learn the art form of calligraphy! I have been messing around with a couple types of pens, markers etc. I've looked at Instagram, Google and Pinterest to get inspired and start writing. I really love the look of brush calligraphy and I found an amazing artist to start my journey with!
Random Olive Design has a great Instagram and video's so you can see her in action! A newsletter, which I love, plus it's a little reminder to start writing. Plus she has an awesome Brush Letter Practice Guide you can buy, download and print to your hearts content all the pages you need to practice.
The class cost is going up from $20 to $27 !!! More great content has been added to the class but their is still time to get the class for $20 !!!!
