WS: Blue


I was originally thinking Summer, water … for the new WS BLUE challenge … but somehow I ended up with a more sacral gothic arch page. Wrote the latin text with a small paint brush and acrylics since I’m not sure whether I need a special nib for my calligraphy pen when using acrylics (which has been resting for years in it’s box anyway). Think it looks quite authentic though. Background stamps are handcarved and the cross is from Green Pepper Press. Copper heishis from ARTchix Studio.*** Für die neue MS Herausforderung BLAU dachte ich eigentlich an Sommer, Wasser … aber irgendwie ist dann diese recht sakrale Gotikseite rausgekommen. Hab den Lateintext mit einem kleinen Pinsel und Acryl geschrieben, da ich nicht wußte, ob Acryl meine Kalligraphiefeder ruinieren würde (auch wenn sie in der Schachte vor sich hin staubt). Doch es schaut doch recht authentisch aus. Hintergrundstempel sind geschnitzt und das Kreuz ist von Green Pepper Press. Copper Heishis von ARTchix Studio.
