Happy October everyone! We have officially made it to fall. I love this season! I do NOT like the season after it or cold, but it is nice for a few weeks. Sweaters, candles, food, books, pumpkin, coffee, cozy days, oh my!  It’s been a while since I’ve done some calligraphy around the blog! It’s so nice to add on chalkboards, signs, cards or invitations, decor, etc. So today I decided to do a little calligraphy from my Calligraphy Made Easy: Project Book by Ashley Gardner. I found a template that I felt fit the fall mood, and got started!

The first thing I do before drawing anything in pen is draw the design lightly in pencil.

Then I go over it all with a calligraphy pen. Press harder on the downstrokes, and lightly on the upstrokes. You could also use any pen and write normally, but go back over the downstrokes and fill them in.
