Calligraphy Journal

I've started a new journal!  OK, don't laugh.  I know, another one.  The big news will be when I actually FINISH a journal.

This one is going to be full of calligraphy.  It is almost 9" x 12" and was inspired by Martha Lever's "BIG" journal.

I wasn't able to buy locally the journal that she uses, so I bought a Fabriano pad of nice smooth paper which is squared with dots.  This will help the writing stay straight.  Unfortunately, the paper doesn't stay attached to the pad very well, and I could end up rebinding it with my Bind-It-All.  The paper is too thin for water-based media, but I'll have a chance to use pan pastels and stamps that I haven't used for awhile.

It takes awhile to fill up a page!
