Sneak Peek: Illumination

So, here is a bit of a sneak peek at one of the larger things I am working on with my free time. I've always quite liked illuminated manuscripts and old patterning, so I am making a few illuminated pages. These are a few of the practice letters I started with. I'm quite pleased with them so far.

The materials for this have quite taken over my desk. It's an exciting thing to be working on, though. There were a few small recent setbacks (such as a bit of ink splatter over a partially completed page from Beowulf) but I suppose it's all part of the experience. Now, back to the drawing board!
