Title: Hi from Brisbane, Australia
Post by: Bella Elizabeth on July 17, 2019, 09:39:37 PM
Hello all; I'm Bella - I live in sunny Brisbane Australia.

I've been a long-time admirer of gorgeous calligraphy and penmanship, spending countless hours watching Instagram and Youtube videos; but I've finally bitten the bullet and decided to start learning myself. I'm starting off with Spencerian and have been working my way through the New Spencerian Compendium - mostly just doing stroke drills.

I can't wait to get to know everyone!

Welcome @Bella Elizabeth !
Have you checked out Schin Loong @openinkstand’s YouTube videos. She has some Spencerian. They are mesmerizing to watch.

Hope you are enjoying Flourish!  ;D

Bella, welcome! Spencerian is my next goal. In a year. After I'm mostly competent in Copperplate. Spencerian is SOooo graceful and delicate--love it! Schin Loong has some beautiful books available as well as online videos. Hope you're enjoying the forum.  :)
