๐ŸŒฟ๐ŸŒฑ I just couldn't stop adding leaves to this envelope ๐Ÿ˜„
And I love these national stamps of PostNL ๐Ÿ’Œ You see a lapwing (kievit in Dutch) & a grebe (fuut) on them.
It's a pity that PostNL doesn't have a variety of beautiful international stamps to choose from ๐Ÿ˜•
But it's possible to design your own international stamps online, so think I'll do that in the near future ๐Ÿค—

Lines are not very straight due to the strange writing posture I had to adopt on account of a messy but interesting desk.

Calligraphy practise using some quotes from Everything is Illuminated by Jonathan Safran Foer.

I think I've finished this illuminated letter. Not sure if I should add more details or leave it as is. Lots of gold on this one which really makes it light up in the sunlight. โœจ๐Ÿ’–โœจ#sgcalligraphy #calligraphysg #calligraphy #illumination #illuminatedletters #gilding #23kgoldleaf #youdeserverealgold #fabercastell #finetec #crobersonandco #liquidgold #derwent #pointedpen #dippen #mccafferyink

Has been productive day at Roberson. Experimenting in lab with new colours. #crobersonandco #liquidmetal #acrylicpainting #newcolours #goldpaint #thesecretlivesofcolour

My first letter in Spencerian ๐Ÿ’Œ!!
In fact, it's my first handwritten letter in a looooong time ๐Ÿ˜ณ
And of course had to add a name card, now that I suffer from a khadi paper addiction โ˜บ๏ธ

World Calligraphy Day ๐Ÿ–‹
I didn't even know about its existence, but today is World Calligraphy Day ๐Ÿ˜Š!!
So I'm feeling quite festive ๐Ÿ’ƒ
Also having a bit of a shaky hand today, but posting this anyway to celebrate that I discovered calligraphy in the past year โœจ
I'm feeling so grateful for finding this hobby that makes me so happy!
I'm wishing all my calligrafriends a very happy day filled with calligraphy ๐Ÿ’Œ

Happy that this mail arrived at its recipient in England today ๐Ÿ˜Š
I wrote another beautiful poem by Gaby Comprรฉs @gabywrites in Spencerian ๐Ÿ’™ Swipe to get a better view on the poem and to see the beautiful botanical illustrations on the stamps, designed by Janneke Brinkman-Salentijn.
On the stamps you see a Luzerne butterfly and an autumn anemone. I really love this collection of stamps! .

Spencerian Cross Drills ๐Ÿค“โœ’๏ธ
Recently I saw Nina @anintran & Pia @wurlocke doing Spencerian cross drills and I thought it was about time I tried to do some too ๐Ÿ’ช
And Nina has the perfect guide sheets on her website (for free!) for this. Thank you so much Nina ๐Ÿ™
The whole purpose of these drills are to practise free arm movement (at least I think ๐Ÿค”) And that's quite a challenge for me ๐Ÿ˜… I tend to keep to much heaviness in my arms and hands and am still searching for the right posture.
Is there any lefty out there who, like me, uses a righthanded oblique and is practising Spencerian with the paper 90 degrees to the right? I would love to see a video of a lefty doing these cross drills and see how he/she moves the arm/holds the pen (maybe you Younghae @logos_calligraphy ?)!
I did watch several videos of John DeCollibus, but not one where he is writing Spencerian รกnd where you can see his whole arm clearly.
Tips are welcome!

Hello July โ˜€๏ธ!
I haven't been posting much lately, but I have a good excuse ๐Ÿ˜Š: I was on a holiday to England ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง! We stayed in a beautiful cottage close to the North York Moors. What a stunning area that is โค๏ธ And after that we also spent a long weekend in another cute cottage in Leicestershire. It was such a great holiday ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
Although I brought quite some calligraphy stuff with me, I just didn't find time to write. The weather was just to great โ˜บ๏ธ
I do feel a bit of an after-holiday-blues, but also enjoy doing some calligraphy again!
And what do you think of this background ๐ŸŸ? It's a paper napkin from the HEMA, that I now use for cleaning my nibs. Really love this design ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿ

๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ“ฌ I'm really enjoying making snail mail for #calligrafriends these days! The other day I received such a beautiful card and great nibs from @rhodeswrites ๐Ÿ˜Š And this is the card I sent to her, together with my favourite nib!

Received great ๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ“ฌ today from Claire @rhodeswrites ๐Ÿ˜ƒ
She made me a beautiful card (check her Instagram for the card she made me ๐Ÿ’Œ!) and we are doing a little nib exchange! She sent me her favourite nib to try: the Henry Superieure no. 605 ๐Ÿ–‹
Of course I put one right in a potato ๐Ÿฅ”๐Ÿ˜„
Claire, I totally understand your love for this nib! It writes so smooth โœจ
And I'm now more convinced that you might like the Incomparable too โ˜บ๏ธ Hope you will find it in your mailbox on Monday!
Thank you so much for the card & nibs ๐Ÿ˜˜ They made my day!

A #calligrafriend told me she lost her calligraphy mojo a bit. And as I have plenty at this moment, I decided to send her some ๐Ÿ“ฎ๐Ÿ’Œ

A few months ago I bought the Permanent Pigmented Penman Ink from @crobersonco in Violet Purple.
As I love how it writes and because it's also waterproof after drying, I decided to treat myself to two more colours: Copper oxide & Green olive ๐Ÿ˜Š
Great colours too!
All the nibs I have seem to love this ink.
Give them a little stir before using (and yes, I use chopsticks for this ๐Ÿœ) and you are ready to go โœ’๏ธโœ’๏ธโœ’๏ธ
