Found on the Web

Sue Simpson has examples of wedding invitation wraps on her current blog. What a nice solution to this problem. Having done invitations for one daughter and one daughter-in-law I can empathise with the situation she describes.

Something New

As yet unfinished. I was just testing the colour. Off to find the paper to use as support.
Added quickly from my phone. This is from a sketch book and is written  with witch pens using Gouache on cartridge paper. This is not the final layout that I want and the paper needs more character. I have in mind a heavy handmade watercolour paper hence the use of the witch pen. The 'Rowan Tree' needs to be placed after the 'and'. I was pleased with my performance; no guide lines, a wobbly surface and rushed. The lesson to learn might be 'get on with it'.

Something from the past

Recovered; a piece from a while back.
The uncial writing is mine in this collaborative piece which was presented by the Welsh Government on a visit to China. I am hoping to find a clearer image one day.

New Year, another start

First post of this piece composed by our friend Gareth Williams to mark our 25th wedding anniversary last year.It has taken nearly 12 months to fit the job in. The image above, taken with a phone, displays the fall off of the camera flash. Not the best solution, but a start.
