Greetings to you!
My friend Andrea came over for an Art Date on a recent Sunday afternoon.
We worked on lettering, she making some Christmas cards and I writing out a holiday quote. (The lovely frame I put it in was a gift she gave me a few years ago, making the project more meaningful.)
As you can see, she is quite skilled with the pen. It was a secret talent actually, as I had no idea beforehand that she was so good at it, and then she just busted out and began making these beautiful letters!
She used a brush-marker while I used a chisel-tipped marker meant for calligraphy.
I also added some gold detail with a nice pen that she had.
↑ We practiced on scratch paper before moving to card stock.↑
↑ Andrea has relatives in the Czech Republic ... That is Merry Christmas translated. ↑
↑ While we worked at the table, Nick worked on his own creations, whipping up a couple of pizzas. ↑
↑ We put away the pens and paper when dinner was served.↑
An Art Date with a friend turned out to be a really fun thing to do and we now hope to begin getting together to create something on a regular basis. Of course, I'll let you know how we make out!
Thank you very much for reading,
