Thanks for the wonderful time on Sunday, Priscilla @bypriscillalee and Melissa @epochdes! What a fun and #chillaxing class! . Now while I won’t always have cute little apples or flowers or leaves at my disposal (nor would I know exactly what to do with them yet), I now have an even DEEPER appreciation for all the effort and creativity behind the layout and presentation! βœ¨πŸπŸŒΏπŸ’ #itsthelittlethings . In this photo, Skylar @purasoulphoto did her thang and made my plain-ol’-letters pop look so pretty! Thanks for the layout and photo advice! . Not only did I get to take away amazing why-didn’t-I-think-of-that tips from the class while sippin’ on some yummy pomegranate wine, I also had the pleasure of meeting a couple of calligraphers in our Instagram community. So lovely to meet you, Venice @nixcribbles and Kathleen @tsecalligraphy πŸ€—πŸ’•βœ¨. I can’t wait to see you at #calligrafair2018 in October! . P.S. I can’t promise that I will be able to reproduce this layout (yet)πŸ€”πŸ˜‚... so let’s not get our hopes up! #someonehandmesomeapples #andsomeflowers . Thanks for a fun time, Pris and Melissa! βœ¨πŸ’πŸ’–πŸ’• .

In my last post, I mentioned that I typically complete the main strokes of my letter chain in a word first, THEN I go back and add the extra things like terminal dots, tittles, crossbars, etc. β€” EXCEPT for terminal dots on s, k, p, and the bottom left terminal dot on x (first group). . I always add the terminal dot on c, loop on e, and details on x after one completed my letter chain (second group). I learned this from Dr. Joe @drjmvitolo β˜ΊοΈπŸ™πŸ»πŸ’•. . What’s your method? .

When do you dot your i’s and cross your t’s: A) as you go or B) after you’ve written your word or C) other? #explainyoself πŸ˜‚πŸ’• . I like to complete my chain of letters in a word first, then i go back (right to left) to add tittles, terminal dots, and crossbars so as not to break the rhythm of my downstrokes β€” except for dots on k, p, s, and the first half of x. #videocomingsoon .
