It’s fair to say that it probably took the MOO Crew no more than a couple of minutes before we were hooked on calligraphy. The calligraphy lesson at MOO HQ was great fun and inspiring too. Stepping away from the computer for a couple of hours to go back to basics was a breath of fresh air for us (and it helped that we got to be a little messy with the ink too!)
This all got the little creative cogs in our brain ticking over. Inspired, we took to the internet to track down some calligraphy shots to see how the pros do it. That’s not me suggesting we’re novices but some *might* say we could use a little bit more practice.
Dotted around the internet we saw so many beautiful examples, we were even inspired to create our very own Pinterest board of some of our favourites. But it wasn’t just the look of the calligraphy that we’re excited by, it was what you could use it to say – there’s nothing like seeing your favourite quote scribed so beautifully.
Which is where you come in (see what we did there?!) – we want you to take a break from the keyboard, rack those brains and go and grab your fanciest pen – or quill, if you’re feeling extra confident. Don’t worry, you can check out our Calligraphy with MOO blog for some tips and tricks!
We’d love to see your favourite quote or saying, in your best calligraphy scribe (swoops and swishes are optional) on your nicest paper. Then snap some shots and email them over to firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll be running this competition until 11:59am PST on Friday 30th August and some of our favourite entries will win some new Luxe Notecards. We’ll also put all the other entries onto their very own Pinterest board too.
We hope you have as much fun trying it out as we did. Good luck!
*Don’t just send the beautiful ones our way, we’d love to see the ‘not quite’s and the ‘oops, disaster!’ attempts too.
