How exciting. Why don't we all exchange addresses through private messages. :)

Sharing & Caring Exchanges - old board / Penpal and Happy Mail Exchange
« on: January 09, 2014, 01:19:26 PM »
Is anyone interested in having a penpal and doing a simple happy mail exchange? I am a beginner in calligraphy but I love stationery and paper crafts. I'm also into Project Life which is one of the reasons Ive decided to learn calligraphy.

I figured this would be a good way for me and other beginners to practice. Im open to more advanced calligraphers as well.

Great article. Do you have a copy of the finished product?

I've seen on pinterest people using a pencil sharpener on their chalk. I haven't tried it but when I need to create a thin line on mine, I just use the edge of a brand new piece of chalk.

I've also seen tutorials on how to make a paint out of chalk. You can try this and just use a thin paintbrush.

In this picture that I'm attaching is of a gingerbread man I drew of myself along with my name, I used the edge of a fresh piece of chalk for the thin lines. Please keep in mind that I don't know how to do calligraphy yet, so don't judge my name too harshly. :)

Great ideas, thanks! I think I.m going to try some type of container with compartments to separate the nibs.

I'm looking for inspiration on how to store my supplies. I have limited space and curious toddlers running around.

Great observations! You gave me an idea! I'll have to do a comparison sheet of different nibs and share it on the forum!

I would appreciate something like that!
