My Collage to be in the Newberry Library Calligraphy Show

Found the photo so read onto the next post!

Collage Accepted in the Newberry Library Calligraphy Show

I received the news that my collage with a quote is accepted into the juried Calligraphy Exhibit at the Newberry Library! I can't quite find the photo - it's on my regular blog under March of 2009. The show is March 15th - May 28th and the reception is March 27th. At the reception there will be calligraphy demonstrations from 11:30am- 1pm.
The landscape collage is one of my favorites and is about 8" x 20" if I remember correctly. The quote was lettered and then copied on a sheer paper that I then transferred on to the collage.

Sister's Wedding Invitations (italic lettering)

Worked on some envelopes yesterday which reminded me that i don't think i had these (my Sister's) wedding invitations on my blog. I designed them in black ink and hand painted the rose buds. The Thank You notes are printed in color.

Flag Book

We'll be creating this Flag Book at the Center workshop after the next paper painting class. The next class is Friday, Feb. 19th and then this class, March 5th. I didn't get the words added yet. The possible one includes words from the quote about Mend a quarrel, etc. but we will choose the phrases we want to include.

Paste Paper Workshop

There were nine in the workshop at the Center and we all had fun painting with paste paper. Most were from the Collage class and will use the papers in collages.
