Sorry I've been so lax in blogging...life does get in the way. Someone rang me today to ask for this scripture (KJV version) verse to be written out amd made to look 'old'.....it is just worked on cartridge paper with Alizarin Crimson gouache and a Number 2 William Mitchell nib. The style or the 'hand' is rounded Gothic or as some call it Gothicised Italic, take your choice! Afterwards I roughened up the edges with a sharp blade and have torn a couple of places deliberatively. Then I've brushed TH Antique Linen over the whole page and added Brushed Corduroy around the edges. Think it should do the job it is intended for next week.
