Playing catchup with Moorea Seal’s 52 Lists. Here’s Week 5. I tried out some new green Ecoline Ink I bought recently along with cheap watercolours for the yellow. Script is Carolingian Minuscule, my current favourite (in case you were unaware). I’m currently busy practicing the Humanistic Cursive, which is very pretty, but a hell of a bitch to get right. But pretty. I’m determined to master it.
I used little yellow squares as dividers on this one and made a tentative attempt at decorating the top and bottom of the page.
Week Five // List what you are grateful for
love // my boyfriend // family // friends // my creativity // karate // movement // support // books // my skills // music // inspiration // doing my own thing // my hands // sight // touch // hearing // taste // smell // hot water (nothing beats a good shower and I don’t wake up without one) // internet // art // paper // ink // pencils // paint // my favourite pen // my body // tea // making progress (slowly, but hey) // my health (hope I won’t be taking that one back the next few days, our house is currently a viral breeding ground) // good food // good stories // beds // ideas // calendar // electricity // beautiful notebooks (I’m a sucker for these) // tuscanny (best holiday ever) // professional help // questions // sunshine // laughter // courage // the ability to read and
right write (Or not. I did not seriously just do that.) // cameras // trusting myself // handwritten letters // dancing // feldenkrais // calligraphy // art (again, because it’s awesome. Okay. I forgot I already had that one and I needed a short word.)
A lot of those are my tools of the trade as a graphics designer. I point blank refuse to add computers because they hate me and the feeling is reciprocal. Pity I’m so dependant on them.
52 Lists is a project by Moorea Seal. I have been using it since the beginning to practice my calligraphy skills. Here you can find all the lists I’ve done so far. If you’re interested in calligraphy inspiration, visit my Pinterest Calligraphy board.
