Happy Mother's Day!
« on: May 14, 2017, 08:42:14 AM »
I haven't shared any work in a while, but I was really pleased with my Mother's Day card this year. While more handlettering, calligraphy rules still influenced the work. True to form, I went overboard with the flourishing nearing illegibility, but tried to offset some of that with use of colour. Next time, I would tone the flourishes down just a bit. Always so hard on ourselves we are! :S

I hope all the Flourish moms have a wonderful day...everyone else too of course, but extra love to the moms today. And to all those for whom today is bittersweet, extra big hugs to you...
