May Class in Reggie Ezell course

I have been working on my homework for the next class in Reggie Ezell's "Primitive to Modern" course. We were assigned several different tasks to choose from, one is to recreated a piece from the St. John's Bible and/or a small book on vellum. I have been working on a recreation of a piece created by Suzanne Moore in Deuteronomy of the St. John's Bible. Here are a couple of close ups.

Next, I am working on a small book. I am narrowing my design options and laying it out on paper first. I am on my second draft. The illustrative portion has been settled, the wording has been settled, now I need to decide on the look of the text. This is where I cannot seem to make a decision. The text needs a hand that is a little uncontrolled and urgent, which is out of my comfort zone. No photos have been taken so far but I will post some when the text has been settled upon.

Greeting cards on etsy shop

I have recently added three new items to my etsy shop. They are greeting cards printed with archival ink from my Epson 3880 (love my printer). The cards were created from original watercolors and calligraphy that were scanned into photoshop and manipulated.

I love to write words from the bible and hope others find them inspirational.

Wedding Projects

I have recently finished up a couple of wedding projects. One was a complete wedding package, the other an envelope project. Both were a lot of fun and the clients were great. Here are a few pics. . .

Modified Gothic Style

Here is another piece done for homework from the first class of Reggie's 'Primitive to Modern' class. I really was motivated on the homework from the first class.

I must admit, though, this month I am struggling with ideas. But that's ok; I still have time. At least that's what I keep telling myself.

Meditations of the Heart

I seem to be having a bit of a mental block lately, struggling to find subject matter to put down. Or maybe, yes maybe, it is too much in my head that I cannot get anything to come out. Everything is wedged at the opening and nothing will budge.

Just today, finally, I wrote down this verse, added it to an existing background, and modified it in photoshop. Going to share it in with my study buddies next week.

More work from the Reggie class

This text is cut as one piece from black paper and then adhered to the red paper. The circle elements tie the text together and also connect the text to the edges.

Happy Easter!
