C & R project moves forward!

You may recall the beginning of this project, more than a  month ago, when I figured out the size and designed the letters.

It seems that going public about my procrastination was just the kick in the pants I needed to 'feel the fear and do it anyway'. After the Procrastination post I got to work.  I went to my desk, got out a pen and one of the letters, and made some marks. That's all it took. I was off!

Here they are with about half of the inking complete:

After I finish with the ink, I'll do the shading, and whatever else seems fitting.
Update soon. So's the wedding!

In case you're curious, here are Chloë (our eldest daughter) and Robin. This is their engagement announcement,  which Chloë designed to be like a movie poster.

She just arrived from Halifax for a visit. And a wedding!


  1. Looking fabulous! I love handlettering, calligraphy, etc. and love to see ways to incorporate Zentangles into it. Oh and the announcement - so clever!

  2. Love your letters! Wonderful!!

  3. The letters are looking great! What kind of paper are you using. I assume that the pens are black and sepia. (?) Love the engagement announcement-very clever!

  4. Your letters are looking really great! Congratulations to Chloe and Robin, the poster is a lovely romantic way to announce their engagement!

  5. So beautiful, Margaret! Thanks for sharing these. I am inspired!

  6. Thanks everyone! I'll post the finished art soon. Sue, I'm using Stonehenge paper for this. I think the color is Buff. It's nice to work on, both pen and pencil.
