Here is my inspiration:
Etsy artist Primele is amazing and her fonts truly inspire me. She doesn't create your traditional calligraphy font, but instead a more modern, whimsical type. She creates address stamps too!
I went online and looked for font samples and further instructions. I found some great ones from Leigh Wells and her Ink Wells blog.
I purchased a starter calligraphy set from Michaels Stores and made a go at it. As you can see (three pages front and back), I'm not very good. I need some serious practice but with all of this inspiration (and 7.5 months), I can do it.
