10 gifts

  • Writing Tool : Speedball Steel Brush, 3/8
  • Letter style : Italics

Every once in a while, people ask what my favourite letter style is. Always hard up for an answer, I suppose I could say … this. Free-style italics are what seem to flow out of my hand the most naturally. And as I said in a previous post, I adore this steel brush, which creates some great “frazzled” effects in my letters.

As for the word itself, as time goes on, the less interested I am in gifts.

On the other hand, I just LOVE wrapping them up! I particularly like the style of the gift in this photo … very natural: a pine cone, some twine, some evergreen and kraft paper. That’s right up my alley!
