Day 10 - Fortune
« on: October 10, 2023, 06:19:43 PM »
Quick catch up session, as I'm preparing for a little workshop (intro to calligraphy) for my cousin and some of his friends. My cousin was my witness at my wedding and helped in many ways. So although I don't feel legitimate at all to host a calligraphy workshop, I owe him one.
Oh crÍpe!

@Lucie Y - best wishes for your workshop! (I'm prepping for one this weekend too). That's a really elegant F in Fortune.

@Mary_M - That's a gorgeous "bounce"!
And thank you for your enthusiasm for mine. I'm considering writing a children's book with a colleague of mine, about doing scientific research on Lake Superior. Nice to know I might have a good aesthetic for it!

I used Diamine's "Spiced Apple" (Inkvent 2022) on this one for the red capital F and also the lettering. The photo doesn't do it justice with regard to the "chameleon" shimmer it lays down. The designs come from tarot cards - the "Rota Fortunae" (Wheel of Fortune) in the middle, with the Fool and the Devil on the stem of the F, and a little Coin on the top bar.

@Lucie Y and @K-2 - Nice work!

Iíve been trying to learn Spencerian this year and am at the minnow stage. (Does anyone remember that from swimming lessons?) 😂 I learned to play around with decorative borders from watching Heather Held videos.
