Feeling Victorian

I saw an incredible Victorian lady flourish embellished with quills and birds in an ebay auction. I didn't win the auction but I was inspired to try my hand at the Victorian lady and embellish her with Ames style floral flourishes. This design was done with a Perry 28 which I had never tried before. I am going to send the flourish to my friend who was kind enough to send me the pen point to try out.

Flourishing Class

Taught a very eager group of students some basic offhand flourishing this evening. These were images were from my demo sheets.

For My Valentine

I love the month of February! Fighting off a nasty flu though! Somehow found a way to make a workstation for my pen and ink on my bed! If I am going to be sick, I might as well find a way to enjoy it. I made this for my Valentine.

February 1st

Starting with my Valentines! I love to do heart flourishes. I was experimenting with blending watercolour pencils on this flourish.
