Word Verification with A Flourish

 I crack up at some of the word verifications that Blogger generates. You know the word you're asked to type in the box when you want to leave a comment on some blogs? Well, I've been collecting these silly, little words in a journal in hopes of getting a complete A-Z list.  I was always taught it's better to practice writing words rather than just individual letters when studying calligraphy.  Instructors will have you choose a category (cities, flowers, trees, names, etc.) and then write a list of words A-Z.  So this is my A- Z list of goofy word verifications.  I'm just playing here - I had no particular script in mind.  I'm missing K, X and Z, so if you happen upon any word verifications beginning with those letters you'll know where to send them. :) I used a Gillott 1068A nib and Moon Palace Sumi on a watercolor background.

 This was a recent commission. I used a Spencerian No. 1 nib and Dr. Martin's Bleedproof White on periwinkle card stock.

Thank you so much for all the 25th anniversary congratulations and good wishes!
(((Big Hugs))) You all are the best!!
I hope you have a delicious, sweet filled weekend.
Where did October go?!
