The Triangle Calligraphers' Guild started an Envelope Exchange this month, headed by Hattie. I am a part of this fun and talented group of calligaphers who wanted to send hand-lettered envelopes once a month to the other participants. Each month has a theme. This month, the theme was Thanksgiving. I went outside and found a leaf that I liked, took it up to my desk, painted the backside, then "stamped" it onto the envelope. "Happy Thanksgiving" was lettered with an old Speedball nib and Daler Ink. "Johanna" was lettered with watercolors using a hand-carved wooden nib. I am looking forward to doing these each month as well as receiving them!
