Rachel's Calligraphy Progress

11/8: I finally ordered the layout bond that Molly recommended and it is way silkier!  I spent some more time practicing this week and wrote out another quote.  I still think I am pressing too hard, especially as I get to the end of a line.  

10/24: Tonight I started praticing the 1st half of the alphabet.  

and then I tried making it my own a bit.  I also feel like I'm finally getting a feel for the right level of pressure.

I still haven't practiced the second half of the alphabet but I couldn't resist trying out this Rumi quote that I love.

10/23:   I am having trouble with bleeding.  Maybe it's the paper? Or more likely I am pressing too hard, going to slowly.
