Sample of my lettering style ‘Kristen’

Sample of my lettering style 'Kristen'

This envelope was lettered in a navy blue ink for a recent calligraphy project that I did. I developed this style last year for my daughter’s wedding and named it after her.
I am available to letter the envelopes for your invitation. My pricing is very reasonable and the turn-around time is approximately two weeks, depending on the amount of envelopes you need lettered. Please contact me at jherr54@aol.com for more information.

Fish Aquarium Zentangle

FISH zentangle

In a break from Calligraphy, I am filling in page after page in my Zentangle book I received this past Christmas.  Everything but the two small squares on the right are my zentangles.  I just may add some Calligraphy to this…keep watching.

I wanted to create somthing for my new calligraphy pal for 2014. We just received the name of our person and she’d celebrated her birthday just a short time before. I thought it would be nice to create her name with different typestyles for each letter. Black and white was too boring so I added some color. When finished, I sprayed it with fixative since the color part was watercolor. To finish it off, I scored and folded it like an accordian so it could stand up and would be easier to mail!

Anniversary gift: First Dance Lyrics

Picture1

The client wanted the lyrics  of their first dance lettered onto her pre-cut mat.  I utilized the ‘letter it first, fold to determine the middle and then letter on the final piece’ method.  The stress factor is high with it being just one chance to get it right!  Room was left underneath the photo area for a plaque with the name of the song.

Centering Certificates

Centering Certificates

First I lettered the words, then folded them to find the center. This way it shows me where to begin the line to center them in that line. This was done recently for the Sherlock Holmes Society who hold their yearly meeting in NY in January.

Birthday Card for my Daughter

Birthday Card for my Daughter

I have so much fun creating these cards that I came up with! My daughter lives far away and so I used a map of her new area and some fun and colorful typestyles from old magazines, etc. to create this card. The bottom strip of map on the front is from her former city of Chicago and the inside flap is from our home state. It’s a cool way to show the different locations of her life so far!

Christmas Ornaments

Christmas Ornaments

I lettered 277 glass ornaments and added artwork for a client’s Christmas Candlelight Ceremonies. Lots of fun!

I can do the same for you! Let me know if you need a gift for a new baby, a birthday, Valentine’s Day or any special occasion. Prices vary depending on the ornament, its size and the complexity of the artwork. Contact me for prices.

Merry Christmas!
