Having finished Grandma's Beads I sat back on my laurels and got stuck into some serious calligraphic projects. Breathing space- so here is my catch up contribution. My pledge in contributing to ALAW was to use only found material or stuff I already had ...trying to clear out the cupboards. I did an invitation job for a handbag company and the surrounds for my letters come from left over invitations. The letters are cut from another invitation which was printed on very thin wood which was a devil to write on but easy to cut with a scalpel. I have no idea how I will present them and, because they are cut out, they are see- through letters, I will have plenty of scope. I have used Neuland Script as the letter form as it has straight lines and easy to cut-out.
I like these very much Heather - so many layers of interest...ReplyDelete
