They will be given to women in recovery. The organizer of The Social Calligraphy Creative, who volunteers at a Vancouver centre helping women, says that these small notes of encouragment mean a great deal to many there.
They are each invited to choose one and take it home to pin up where they can read the encouragement each day.
The Collective meets once a month to practice lettering, socialize, and do calligraphy for social change.
Summertime can bring a wonderful change of pace - like enjoying the weather and spending time in the garden. I'm working on some book projects and have found a new calligraphy project, #letteringforchange. Twice a week, on Social Change Saturdays and World-changing Wednesdays, we letter a new quotation. It is all hosted by @socialcalligraphy.
These are the first two for July, both done mostly in watercolor.
I just finished making a vintage junk journal, inspired by this site of the same name. A junk journal is made largely of junk (used envelopes, maps, brochures, book pages, etc.), and I've made similar ones in the past. The ones featured on this site are the nicest that I've seen on the internet, and they inspired me to make another.
For now I've attached the embellishments with paper clips, until I start to use the journal.
Yup, that's foreign currency you see.
The site is full of great tips and tutorials and I've spent a lot of time over the last week watching their videos. One of the cute ideas is to decorate the ends of the binding thread. I used little tags.
