Calligraphy Flourish Friday - Hodgepodge

This is a journal entry I did a few months back. It's a nod to A site I've used over the years to determine if something on the internet is legitimate or not. The site staged its own little hoax about the children's nursery rhyme Sing a Song of Sixpence. You can read about it here. I find it extremely difficult and frustrating to verify and make proper attributions for quotes on the internet.

This is a new entry in my Moleskine journal. I have been trying to get my studio organized. I have different jobs and projects going on, and I feel as though my studio is the inside of a pinball machine. (and I'm the ball!)

A menu card I did this week.

This week's flourish was inspired by this post at The Calligraphy Pen Blog. I love A. Lucas and Wolfgangcat's tutorials. After creating a border following the wonderful step-by-step instructions, I wanted to try a variation with a pointed pen. I hope you like it.

Go Forth and Flourish! :)


  1. Jane I love your journal pages!!

  2. Wow, you have been busy busy! I love all 4 pieces posted. You're SO good and you inspire me to try new things. Happy New Year!

  3. Great work, Jane! I love the birds and the journal entry. And the menu and the border. Well, I guess I just love everything you do! :-)

  4. I love your border and Hodgepodge. I'm a big bird enthusiast. The titles are wonderful also. I just love visiting your blog...

  5. The bird piece is my favorite, I say it's 'frameworthy.'
    Thank you for the inspiration.
    --Jane R.

  6. The birds on a wire are fantastic - really inspired bit of calligraphy art. Love them.
