In LOVE with life (and calligraphy!!)

Hi everyone!

I'm so happy to be here! This is the first skillshare class that I am taking and I am having so much fun!

To start off, I have decided on the quote "Be in love with your life, every minute of it" - Jack Kerouac

I truly believe in living life to the fullest, and savouring every moment of it. Of course, life may not always be the way you would like it to be sometimes, but I also believe that happiness is a choice that you can make. Likewise, it is possible to choose to love life everyday. Life opens up so much more opportunities when you are aware and thankful for what is already present in your life. (:

To begin, I did a sketch of the quote in pencil on layout paper. I placed a piece of Rhodia grid paper beneath the layout paper so that I can get my words aligned.

I then used black ink and a straight pen holder to write in the final draft of the quote. 

Thanks for looking everyone! I have had so much fun with this project (:

xx Melissa.
