To be completely honest, this card was a bit rough. I am not as experienced with the old type calligraphy featured and my spacing was definitely not stellar. It is the first of many steps toward better calligraphy.
Last year, I received this cute chalkboard from my friend and I was inspired to do some chalkboard typography by @stefankunz a super talented letterer on Instagram who has a really cool chalkboard wall he regularly redoes with quotes. His work is amazing and it seems as though he is always making up new fonts!
Welcome to birthday season! It's spring break now so everyone who had their birthdays in February after President's Day or have them in March is now having their parties and that means it's card season for me.
One of the hardest, yet most rewarding things we are able to do is learn new things. The fear of messing up and the want to do something perfectly in the beginning drives many, including me away from the many activities that I am unable to perform correctly the first time. It takes a lot of effort to be able to perfect something, and I hope that learning brush calligraphy is something that will pay off well in the future when I'm able to create my own cards and pieces. Currently, things aren't going too well and I'm trying my best, but I still can't help but feel frustrated that I haven't progressed to an Instagram level of perfection. I know that their level most likely took hours of practice, but it makes me worry sometimes that I'm not patient enough for this art.
