Here’s my traditional “Calligraphy” style written on a non-traditional envelope.  The flourishes have evolved over the years.

Here’s my most popular writing style – “Fancy Script.”  These flourishes have also evolved since I first started offering this style.

Shimmer envelopes are beautiful and oh-so-trendy, but most inks will not adhere to the surface and will smear with the slightest touch.  However, opaque paint pens work great on shimmer envelopes!  Here’s my “Fancy Script” style written with an extra-fine black DecoColor paint pen:

Here’s one of my newer writing styles – “Shoreline,” which can be written using 1, 2 or 3 different ink colors.  Here it is with berry ink for the text and a gray watercolor swoooosh:

Here’s my “Contempo” writing style.  I *really* like these square Kraft paper envelopes with string & button closure. (Yes, deliverable by the postal service!)
