Medieval Illumination

Nearly threw a wobbly when I saw the challenge Von has chosen this week over at Just for Fun - "Medieval" - the days of Knights, Maidens, Dragons and Merlin!

After a bit of thought and head scratching I decided to doodle an illuminated letter ...


I used gold acrylic paint and promarkers.

It's no masterpiece and not very elaborate - but then again - it is "Just for Fun"!

Thanks for taking the time to visit.

Nice to see a different interpretation of the theme - now why did I not think along these lines?
Love how you have illuminated your initial - good thinking and a great job you made of it.
Thanks for the support.

Well Done ! I looked at illuminated letters as an idea but they do look so complicated. Yours is so beautiful.

It was a hard challenge this week wasnt it - but I reckon you have nailed it. Its very manuscript - and very medieval. Took me three goes to spell medieval let alone think of a project to do!

Good idea for your challenge. Now I see this as an applique cushion. Shall we see this in fabric sometime?

Hi Suze. Some of the best ideas come from having fun. From one little creative spark a fire ignites. I agree with Aileen. I can see this in applique. Lush velvets maybe and some beading.
