Then use calligraphy to create lettering and border designs for your own projects such as poems, notecards, quotes, etc. You may also combine calligraphy with drawings using ink and color pencil, not watercolor pencil. Calligraphy comes from the Greek words, “kalos” meaning “beautiful,” and “graphos” meaning “writing.” It is a meditative practice which may improve one’s own natural handwriting.
