I have a fun challenge for you this week! Even though computers have become our best friends when it comes to internet and typing on a keyboard, our handwriting is a mirror of our feelings. Whatever you write about deserve that you take the time and the effort with your hand and a pen :)
So this week, we challenge you to create a layout, card or Project Life spread that features your handwriting! Sounds good?
For my layout, all I need was some Studio Calico goodies, a waterbrush and black india ink. I was ready to do (try?) some calligraphy journaling!
(supplies - Patterned Papers : Studio Calico StoryTime Fairy Dust; Letter Stickers : Studio Calico Storytime Baby Girl Tiny Alpha; Stickers : Studio Calico Storytime Baby Girl 6x12 Stickers; Studio Calico Storytime Baby Girl Accent Stickers; Studio Calico Storytime Plastic Speech bubbles ; Badges : Studio Calico Thataway Adhesive Badge)To get started, I printed my photo on a 8.5x11 white cardstock, choosing a photo that had quite some clear background for me to write on top of it.
I put some black india ink on top of my craft sheet and dipped my waterbrush into the ink and started writing, adding splashes and ink dots here and there! It was so much fun!
If you feel a little scared to write your journaling right onto the photo, why don't you use a pencil and sketch before getting started with the calligraphy part?
I'm sure you'll do amazing things! And the result is fun! Share your new project for this challenge in the SC gallery, then link up your project here in this post by October 7th to be entered to win a $5 GC to the Studio Calico Shop!
