Think Monday, Think ATC - Handwriting


Handwriting fascinates me. I actually took a general interest course in graphology a few years ago and learned a bit about reading people's handwriting. What does it say about them? Is it jagged looking or rounded and welcoming? Is the person sociable or are they shy and introverted? I find that I choose stamps to use on my artwork based on what I learned. This is my submission for Think Monday, Think ATC this week.

Heather, BEAUTIFUL atc here! You know, the hand writing things is soooo interesting! And I feel with computers, handwriting is falling to the wayside! I was in a doll round robin and I wanted to put a sample of BOTH my Grandma's actual handwriting inside of her, and I had a hard time to get that .....what a shame,and at that time, I asked my folks and my husbands to HANDWRITE a note for our daughter Amber to put in a box for her, so she would have something of them...handwritten! I am with you girlfriend, handwrititing is inspiring! Your art is fabulous, from this post all the way down! <3
Hugs,Patti

I'm really attracted to the colours you used in this. And I love that you took a graphology course -- I had my handwriting analyzed years ago and it was very accurate indeed. Choosing stamps with handwriting based on what you have learned is so very "you" Heather!

I love all of your last 3 posts! Your use of color is understated and haunting and suits the last 3 chalenges perfectly. I don't seem to be abe to do "subtle," however hard I try...
