Spring has finally passed to Summer and hooray for that as Dasherie Issue 3 has finally gone to pre-press! Issue 3, the “Watercolor” issue, is bursting with color, collaborations, and calligraphy! Sure to inspire, this issue features SIX DASHING Artists: Joanne Fink of Zenspirations, Phyllis Macaluso of Quills, Lori Vliegen of Elvie Studio, Kristy Rice of Momental Designs, Kelle McCarter of designsgirl, and Crystal Kluge of Tart Workshop Foundry.
From fun to formal, gorgeous watercolor, contemporary calligraphy and brush lettering, wedding invitations, birth & graduation announcements, dashing design details, and tutorials fill the pages. The delightful “Match Made in Heaven” features the colorful work of Amarilys Henderson of Watercolorful Weddings.
A “Watercolor Wonderful Wedding” stuns with the amazing real wedding images featuring the beautiful work of Canadian artist Jill Lecours Grimard.
We peak inside watercolor Artist Portfolios, get inspired by so many amazing artists, learn how to calligraph an umbrella for gift giving or just any rainy or sunny day, and find out how other artists collaborate together contributing to their successes. Articles include working with watercolor clip art, tools for digitizing calligraphy, how to work with pan watercolors, and how to create a full scale watercolor mixing chart.
The three page nib comparison (two pages shown below) details the thicks and thins of scribes’ favorite nibs. Also included, a special message about the upcoming PBS documentary, “With Pen in Hand — The Journey of America’s Handwriting!”
