Maybe you have probably notice that I dropped the ‘brush’ in my usual title every Wednesdays. Its because I am including another form of writing in my brush lettering journey.
Last week, I gifted myself a simple calligraphy writing set plus other writing essentials I ordered online from a local craft store (Craft Central). I have been eyeing their simple set for weeks now and was glad I finally ordered and spent my ‘me’ time practicing to my heart’s delight.
Also I stumbled upon this lovely blog Sweet Blessings where Shannon shares writing plans every month. I will be using her assigned scripture for every Wednesday of the month and writing them using a dip pen. I will also use the same dip pen to for some of my favorite quotes and of course I will continue writing using a water brush with some of my favorite bible verses.
I wrote these verses and quote last Sunday and was excitedly waiting for today to share it with all of you.
I am filled with so much positivity with this additional journey. Writing for the first time with a dip pen made me feel like I was in another time zone. It felt organic, natural and so satisfying. The activity took me to the days when I was in grade school at Saint Paul’s trying my best to write the ‘Paulinian way’which is more like copperplate calligraphy. I had a difficult time back then but I never forgot how it was done because we were encouraged to write that way until grade 12. And now that I just took a plunge into the calligraphy world together with the brush lettering journey, I know I have a lot on my plate but I don’t mind. I love going through different journeys and learning a few of each of them everyday.
