Calligraphy Exchange

They are done and on their way! Here's an example of what I did- with a portion of the addy blurred for privacy. I included the handwritten quote and a photo of an orchid I took at White River Garden in Indy.
This one was sent to Angela, a Calligrapher friend of mine in Washington state. She is AMAZING. If you ever need a Calligrapher, contact her!

Jimmy the cardinal

I made this poster for my son's school. The principal is retiring this year and this is for the farewell open house. It's almost 7 feet long so I put the kids in there for scale.

ATC Swap

The theme this month is "children" and since I have 2, well, I just had to use them. It kind of looks like there is a halo over J's head.

Charm Swap

I had only planned on making a few like this but the other method I wanted to use didn't work out well so I made them all like this.

Good Old Watercolors

I'm working on a swap for the Calligraphy Exchange yahoo group. The theme this time is flowers and as I was trying to come up with an idea I started doodling in my sketchbook. I was reminded of how much I love the simple look of ink and watercolors. So simple, so pretty.
