Tuesday’s blog post featured mini-interviews with six influential female calligraphers in Part I of this series. Today, we’re looking at six additional inspirational women to conclude the “Influential Women of Calligraphy” series. As a reminder, the interview question that these women are answering is: “What’s your proudest accomplishment, and what did it take for you to get there?” The interviews below appear in alphabetical order as a continuation from Part I.
Last year, Phyllis Macaluso gave us a beautiful Matchbook Valentine’s Day card concept. This year, she’s keeping things simple with an elegant four-step calligraphy Valentine tutorial. For this card, you’ll simply fold, cut, and embellish to make a Valentine that’s classy but quick!
Today’s tutorial combines calligraphy, folds, and ribbon to make an interactive and festive holiday card. Its creator, Phyllis Macaluso, explains: “I got lost in the creative process with this project because it is one of my favorite ones to do. The possibilities are endless! This concept comes from my love of Japanese chiyo papers and the many different folds I learned in that chapter of my life.” Today, Phyllis will show us how to make this perfect folded triangle that opens up to reveal a beautiful burst of festive calligraphy!
