Feather Doodles

I've been in love with calligraphy for a while now. I love seeing invitations addressed using the art of calligraphy. I love browsing artists blogs that use calligraphy. I love pinning calligraphy on Pinterest. It's something I would love to master and I've recently started playing with a couple of calligraphy pens with different size nibs. There are a few things I'd like to hand write for my kids bedrooms but trying to get it to flow and finding my style has been a struggle. In this digital day and age that we live in I think it's important to document our handwriting in little ways and in big ways. You should give it a try.

What I'm learning is that I must loosen up. When I'm not so stiff, and I write with more fluidity, the letters turn out much prettier. When I get something that I like and that I believe is suitable for hanging on a wall and/or framing I'll share it here on Blue Sky Confections. Until then here are a few feathers that I scanned from a recent ink to paper trial.

The word "feathers" is a font that I used and was not handwritten.

Thanks for stopping by Blue Sky Confections!
