Calligraphy Flourish Friday - IAMPETH

After seeing THIS POST I had done, Nan DeLuca asked me if I would do something similar for the 2012 IAMPETH Round Robin.  I miss Nan's presence. The online calligraphy community isn't quite the same without her.  I like to do this type of record keeping since I first learned it from Barb Close.  It helps me to remember things I've learned or seen that I would otherwise forget.  All the above elements were either learned at an IAMPETH class or seen in the archives. I like to make grids not only for flourishing elements but also for letters. It is amazing how many different variations you can have for a single letter.

Tomorrow, March 23, 2013 is registration day for IAMPETH members.  If you plan on going to Albuquerque for the convention this summer, then don't forget to register online!  It starts at 11am Mountain Time, which I believe is 1pm Eastern.

Even without the Boilers in it, I am having fun watching the NCAA Tournament.  I know some of you have already endured heartbreaking losses, and there have also been some big upsets.  My brackets are a mess!! haha.

Enjoy your weekend...Go forth and flourish!


  1. Oh, this is a wonderful idea! I look forward to seeing it when the whole grid is filled! Am sad because I can't even join IAMPETH at the moment till the conference registration is done! :-(

    1. I hope April 6 will be a good day for you! :)

    2. Good to know the date! lol, thanks!

  2. Beautiful - I hope it's ok to print this out as a help for me to practice these little beauties?

    1. Hi, Joyce!
      It is absolutely ok to print this and use as a **reference** when creating your **own**, unique penwork! :) Of course, it is never okay to take my work as one's own (infringement) or without my permission. I say this not for Joyce's sake, because she wouldn't do this anyway, but for others. Thank you!

  3. Dear Jane,
    I don't get to comment much but your work has really inspired me. I recently began learning Copperplate and Spencerian after doing italic calligraphy since I first learned it. I cannot join IAMPETH right now, but I have used the website to learn pointed penwork. I have learned much from your posts. Please continue and be blessed.

  4. oh my gosh...
