A Little Loopy


For today's Oh! How Pinteresting with the wonderful Michelle I am going to continue to oogle over my new obsession... calligraphy. 

Big, loopy, beautiful penmanship I have always had pretty decent handwriting, so basically I was that girl who was the "scribe" ya know the one who actually had to pay attention while in a group for a project. 

I had always played around with fake calligraphy but decided to tackle this bucket list item while I have some time on my hands this summer! Here are some of my inspiration pieces...







isn't it just dreamy!!! 

and here is what I have been playing around with...


Seriously I am obsessed... Like I now want to address 1000 envelopes obsessed!

I LOVE calligraphy! I used a Martha Stewart tutorial to do calligraphy for my wedding last year... it was really fun!

Kara said...

That's one of my most recent goals too! I'm just starting in the craft of embroidering and it's really annoying having to trace it from the computer. I'd love to be able to just write it on there myself. Perhaps I'll take a few practice shots!

Did you learn on the 'net?

I almost took a class last semester on different types of writing. I regret not doing it. Calligraphy is so beautiful!

Michelle said...

I am OBSESSED with calligraphy! But I write a bit like a man. So that's a problem. :) But now I feel inspired to learn!

So pretty! Your calligraphy is just as pretty as your inspiration. You may have just inspired me to add something to my bucket list...
