I’m trying to get back into doing Calligraphy more often. I used an old nib with a different ink and it blobs too easily. Ugh. Dr. Ph Martin’s Bleedproof white to the rescue! Also, messing around with watercolor.

I’m also working more with my brush lettering.

Calligraphy on a cup!

These photos show the steps I used to create this cup for my ‘secret pal’ in my Guild. I used Sharpie oil based pens in primary colors to stipple around the letters and inside the image of the pen. After it dried I carefully removed the paper and then baked the cup at 350 for 30-45 min.

Erin & Ryan’s wedding invite

Erin Invite

I worked with my niece and her fiance for just the look they wanted for their invitation. I printed them and then cut them individually in order to preserve the look of the names running off the edge of the invitation.

BLOGThis is silver ink on a navy-blue envelope. I lettered it in a Spencerian ladies hand typestyle.

It’s Craft Show Season

I spent the past two weekends at Craft Shows lettering names, etc. on Christmas ornaments.
All my ornaments are glass. I letter, or add artwork, according to what the person would like on their ornament.  It’s a huge show, so after they peruse the many booths, they return and I have their item ready to go. Below are samples of ones I created this past weekend.  Feel free to contact me to create one for you!
