Miniature Illumination

Finally finished this illumination in time for Good Friday. I found it very meditative to work on.

3 Dot Flowers

It's been a long time since I did these little watercolour petal flowers. They are such a quick and fun little decoration to add to an envelope. It must be Spring, I am craving pinks and greens! These were painted with Opera Rose and Perylene Green.

Spring Bird Flourish

Inspired today to do a bird flourish. This one will find its way to England. I used some soft watercolour pencil in the leaves and the ribbon. Fun little diversion!

Seeing Red

This is the top of a border flourish I did on a redwork wedding certificate. Unfortunately the cat took a bit of a walk through Jewel Red gouache and added his personal touches to the bottom of the design! Working on take two!

Envelope Exchange

Now and then I participate in envelope exchanges. It's a great way to try new techniques. Right now I am experimenting with a style of German Text. Needs lots of work, but it lends itself very nicely to Offhand flourishing embellishment.
