How to use Dom Loves Mary Calligraphy font flourishes


A few people have asked me to demonstrate how to use the Dom Loves Mary Calligraphy font flourishes.  So I made my very first screen recording! It only took 4 tries:)

I’ve uploaded it to my You Tube channel.  Hope it helps explain some things about the font and how the flourishes fit with the upper and lower case letters.

Since this is the first of many tutorials that I’ll be making, I’d appreciate some feedback about what I did well and what I could do differently.

I really want to get better at this, so your comments would be greatly appreciated!

Yesterday, I talked about the workshop I attended with Barbara Close.  But I forgot to share the great gifts each attendee received.

They were handcrafted by Jeri Wright and Sherry Barber, Kaligrafos members  who put the workshop together.  They are both wonderful calligraphers and so creative and crafty.

Hand made sign, calligraphy sign, hand lettered sign, hand painted signThey made one of these for each of us and placed themt on the doors of our rooms.  ( It’s was a sleep over workshop:)

hand lettering, calligraphy sign, hand made place card holderThese smaller “Welcome”  signs were placed at each place at the table.

For both items, they used a combination of wood, wire, beads and paint and lovingly hand made each one.

It really added to the warm feeling of the weekend.

Thanks Jeri and Sherry!

    I loved the tutorial Debi, even a seasoned designer loves to learn new things, and I do everyday! However I feel compelled to point out flourishes is misspelled on second to last line… I hate when I do stuff like that, I just thought you might like to know since you are putting it out there for the world to see.

    Love ya!!!

      BK,
      Thanks for the encouragement and for pointing out my spelling error:) I will probably just leave it for now but will be sure to check more carefully on the next video. Thanks again!
