Thank you Elizabeth. 

I intially started to run before i could walk... and so my first few attempts were all over the place....

I wasn't even holding the pen right i think... And so i went back to the practice exercises so that i could learn how to use the pen properly... and how to perfect my strokes...

while i did not perfect my strokes it certainly helped in getting a better grip of the pen... 

 

So i tried aping a few of the hand lettered qoutes i found on pinterest.

My hands are still shaky and i struggle with getting thin upstrokes... but i'm really pleased that i am on this journey to perfect my brush lettering.

Here are my three words.
