Journal Inside & back cover

El took this outside today; it's all overcast & rainy. The raven looked right at home.

Inside cover & title page. Poem "Second Coming" by Yeats. I like how the vellum covers the falcon and you only get the 'watermark' look behind it. I'm not happy with my calligraphy but it's my own fault for not practicing the way I should. I did have to do it 4 times as I'd get nearly finished & then mess it up: that doesn't count as practice though :) For real calligraphy see this site His work is amazing and makes mine look like a kindergarteners, LOL!

The inside back cover. No, this isn't a raven feather; but it's still cool!

  3. Beautiful beadwork. I would love to work with beads. I am not sure I have the patience.

  4. Thank you so much for the input. I worked with silk ribbon a long time ago but never thought about it again. I will try that and see what it looks like.


We love to hear from you xoxo!
