World Watercolor Month in Lombardy (kind of ) font

Are you looking for:

My watercolor mentor and teacher, Kathy Delumpa Allegri (see her website here), recently moved to Arizona but members of her classes still get together once a month to paint. Each month, someone volunteers to share an idea or technique.

This month, our volunteer, Val Holiday, brought examples of a faux calligraphy technique for us to try, using a Lombardy calligraphy font and illustrations.

I hadn’t really thought of a word, and decided I’d use the opportunity to remind people that it is World Watercolor Month! (and be sure to visit Doodlewash, the home of WWM, on Saturday, because I have a tutorial on using QoR Iridescent paints that will be posted).

The YouTangle paper is excellent for pen and ink. It isn’t really formulated for watercolor, but handles it well enough if you don’t let it get too wet.

Lots of fun!

Wanna buy some of these cool toys now?
