Getting ready to apply to be a demonstrator at our local Art on Main in the fall. I am hoping this design on the envelope will grab the attention of the committee selecting artist to participate. Crossing my fingers . . .
Found a fun way to warm up and complete a 'to-do' item on my list. I make a border with letters I need to work on or want to develop other ideas for. Makes a more decorative envelope for the recipient and gives me practice. Also played with creating a monogram for JLH - father-in-law.
This was done with a crow quill - which I have finally gotten some control over, it is a very flexible nib which is great for the heavy down stroke but challenging for the thins.
This was a delightful wedding project - and very trendy. Chalkboard signage at the wedding reception. These boards are large - 24" x 36" for the board and then add frame size.
Insider tip - I did the layout on the computer and then enlarged it to size. I was then able to complete it in one attempt. Chalk is not as predictable as pen and ink - but I think that is part of the novelty & pleasure of hand crafted art.
