Penmanship

I recently finished a lettering course with Lori Vliegen.

My penmanship leaves a lot to be desired but I really feel like I have
made some headway and I really enjoy doing these one syllable words.

This is also a good way to use up all those leftover papers.

My paper stash is thrilled that I am finally using some of it.

Once I started I could not stop...it was so much fun!

I kept on going........

Then I switched to sepia ink.

Then I even started speaking French!!!

If you want to improve your penmanship go on over to Lori´s blog
and sign up for her Letter Lab class. She is a great teacher and the
class is so much fun!!
Thanks Lori....I really enjoyed myself.

Cynnie! I think your handwriting is beautiful. I especially like that it doesn't look "canned," but looks like fabulous handwriting. ;-) (Do you write that many notes? OR are these candidates for sales?

It indeed looks like you had loads of fun. Lovely artwork in every card.I wonder if I would see my handwriting as lovely lines- maybe it would become legible.
