week 27 Illuminate..
I live in the North East UK, we have some famous Illuminated manuscripts up here known as the Lindisfarne Gospels, so I decided to use them as my inspiration this week.
I started by spraying ink through a circle stencil on both the back and the front.
then I added Latin text using a background stamp.
To the front I added a layer of stencilling using the faux Lumiere paints I made last week, I used the green and the brown.
then I added the Celtic/Illuminated letter D that I had drawn and coloured with promarkers.
Finally I added some gold wax around the edges.
On the back I added my journalling over some book print.
as we are now over half way, I thought I would show you my growing collection of little pages. out of the 27, there are only 4 that I really do not like. there are 10 that i think are ok, and 13 that i love....I think those are pretty good results all round.
If you have been playing along I would like to know how you feel about the pages you have made so far, do you love them? are there any that you would do differently?
