Calligraphy art

I fell in love with beautiful handwriting when I was a kid...took some calligraphy classes, and continue to (occasionally) scribe.

In honor of that, I created this mixed media assemblage using a vintage Speedball calligraphy box as a base, then adding the paper, pen/feather and nib layers.


This item can be found in my shop.

How beautiful. I love calligraphy and try to implement it into my own handwriting when I'm just writing with a normal pen!

.. you should show us some of your own handy work!

This is lovely. I do a little calligraphy--badly, but it's sort of meditative.
