Postcard Fun

Here’s a little postcard-sized bit of fun that I made this afternoon after doing my usual practice session of pointed pen and broad-edged calligraphy. (Gotta get and keep that hand in shape!)

As much as I love calligraphy, and as long as I have studied it, I still have a thing for hand-printing. A major thing. I don’t know why. It is just as “me” as it gets, or something. J

And I have been playing with regular pastels for some time by “wiping” them onto paper with a tissue. It’s so easy and fun, and such a great way to add color! I used removable painter’s tape to mask off the stripe before I applied the pastels.

The quote reads: “The secret of patience is doing something else in the meantime.” (Spoken like a true knitter, ha-ha!)

To more patience and good distractions…
