The last couple of months Whimseybox has taken only a few days to get here. I don't know if they've changed they shipping methods, but I'm impressed with the speedy deliveries.
April's craft is Learn Calligraphy.
Calligraphy is a skill that marries touch, pressure, movement, unity and beauty together. It is the art of creating fluid symbols by hand and arranging them in harmony and rhythm. Sure, you might end the day with ink splattered fingers but once you find your rhythm, beautiful things will happen!
I actually have some experience with calligraphy, but it's been years since I've done it. It does takes some getting used to, and if you're left-handed it's even trickier to master.
This kit contains:
- 1 Standard Pen Holder
- 1 #101 Hunt Imperial Nib
- 1 #22B Standard Extra Fine Nib
- 0.5 oz Super Black Waterproof India Ink
- 20 Sheets 80# Bright White Paper (for practice)
- 2 Sheets Calligraphy Grid
- 1 Sheet Traceable Alphabet
- 1 Sheet Traceable Quotes
- 2 Sheets 100# Cardstock (for finished project)
I haven't completed this project yet, so I have no final project pics for you. I think this will fun to get back into and have a few things in mind that I might create. I'll probably write some children song lyrics, frame them, and put them up in the boys' rooms.
