Today DeAnn encouraged everyone to experiment with different pens and markers to address envelopes in fun ways. She “drew” names in Copperplate with markers & filled in the thicks with different colors. Then she wrote the address in monoline.
Tip: If you feel the envelope looks “plain” or “boring”, draw decorative horizontal lines above and/or below the names. Metallic gold lines look especially nice.
Flourishing: The 3 elements are Figure 8, Oval, and Circle. Direction changes are small loop, full stop, and turnarounds. Think of the flourishing around a name as the “doily” surrounding the solid name. If you see a gap in the flourishing, add an individual flourish to balance it.
Then we had our potluck and wished everyone a great summer!
