CBTL Giving Journal And Holiday Beverages

The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (CBTL) revealed its 2016 Giving Jounal in an artful afternoon at CBTL Bistro, NET Lima. That day, I got my hands back on calligraphy and water coloring. Twenty-five years ago I first tried calligraphy through the guidance of my late father I learned how to do lettering and use leroy. It made me a little emotional and teary holding those tools again but I'm so glad to finally get my hands back to lettering and painting.

Initially, I had a hard time with the downward stroke. But it was such a great experience. I am think of doing it again, anyway it was a childhood hobby. Thanks Alexia. :)

Water Coloring

Water coloring was the last activity I did. I started painting in canvas at the age of eleven. But it was a delight to learn from a different water coloring skills and style. Using a different kind of brush and applying another technique, you can create nice color paintings like this one below.

The 2016 Giving Journal focused on sharing and giving to others. I guess that's what these arts and crafts was all about. The mentors leading and sharing what they have so in return we could also share.
