Fake Calligraphy | Jones Design Company
I’m pretty jealous of people who have great handwriting, especially those who can do calligraphy! I should really try and find out if there’s a course in Adelaide. But until then, here’s a tutorial on how to fake it til you can make it! Haha! If that seems to be too much work too, there’s also a free font download too.

Reblogging because I think this could be adapted into a cool activity. Or at least a creative brainstorming exercise.

Not at school. Looks like a rainy tuesday activity.
