Hi Everyone, from Connecticut
« on: November 08, 2014, 12:50:52 AM »
Hello everyone, I've been lurking for a week or so and just had to say how much I've enjoyed the flourish forum.  Great information for a complete newbie to the calligraphic arts like me, and very inspiring.  And I need that inspiration!  My attempts at Spencerian are just sad, but I'm keeping at it. 

Best,
Elle

Thank you for the warm welcomes!  I will indeed keep practicing, Erica, and visiting here often.  Working up the courage to post some of my early attempts using the Mott books.  Up to "o" last night! 

Best,
Elle

Hello Elle! Don't feel bad, I haven't even ventured into trying Spencerian yet, I'm still trying to master copperplate and modern calligraphy. I'm finding the key is not to rush. Just be patient. :)

Hi Elle! Welcome to the forum --- such a fun place, I promise :)  I've only started calligraphy last July and still feel like a complete newbie. I haven't even gotten to Spencerian yet, and haven't even tried using the oblique holder.  I've actually managed to document my first attempt at "calligraphy" along with the progress that came with it much later ---> http://jarofsalt.com/2014/07/25/a-newbies-guide-to-calligraphy-written-by-a-fellow-newbie/ This just might come in handy but I'm pretty sure your Spencerian is already good :)
