I have been obsessed with calligraphy since I got to plan my pretend wedding in Bible class my senior year of high school. Since then, I've pinned a million pretty fonts and saved all of my favorite examples of envelopes with different styles of calligraphy. When it was my turn to actually plan a wedding, I started practicing Copperplate calligraphy. I even addressed my save-the-dates! But I just had to have someone else do the real thing--the style I chose was even called "Massey!" As long as you have a steady hand and like practicing handwriting, anyone can do it! all you need are the basic supplies: pen, nibs (I like the B6, 512, and C2 size for everyday, extra fine, and thick lettering), ink, and a ruler. Over the last three years, I have practiced off and on... mostly off, until today!
Thanks to my teaching habits, I feel the need to find my mistakes...
And reward myself for good ones! :)
The capitals are my favorites and loopy names.
