Cheers for the above, A.👍 Over the past few months, I've learnt loads of star-related stuff from you. The poem was a little thank-you.

Much love 💐

Oh that's so pretty! I have some silver sharpies but never thought to write a poem with them!

And, ajay - thank you! I totally missed the above!

Those inks are gorgeous Ajay and Daisy.  My new flex nib pen should be here any day, I can hardly wait 🤩

I'm counting the days, Luna. I don't know anything at all about flex nibs, and I'm intrigued ✒️🙃

Well, it arrived and I’ve thoroughly tested it and discovered…I need a lot more practice before I can write with that pen lol!  There’s a pretty steep learning curve, even for someone who regularly writes with brush pens.  The motions are very similar but the nib is quite sharp, so I will have to write with a lighter hand.  I hope I can get something legible with it soon.  

In the meantime, I’m working on a brush-letter poem and it is sloooow going!

Gorgeous poem, Ajay!

Thanks, Luna 💐

I shall watch and wait for you to gain mastery of the technique.  May the Goddess of penmanship speed your progress.🙃

Much love 💐
