#16 One-Color Collage: Orange Crush

I've been busy with calligraphy work and fell behind on my postcard project. I have several partially finished designs and just completed this version.

Collected images were collaged, then digitally manipulated. Copperplate was scanned and layered in Photoshop. Lots of fun.

Now back to the calligraphy jobs. . .

L - drawn letter as a gift

This letter was drawn in a workshop with Heather Held. Incorporating a simply-flourished copperplate letter, the terminal lobes are gold-leafed with 23 carat gold. The centers of the flowers are glued-on crystals. The color is blended from watercolor pencil. Gold accent strokes are added with fine-tech gold, applied with a brush, as well as with clear Stardust gel pen. I want to make more of these!
