I love lettering and calligraphy and this is a collage of some lettering exercises that I got from an old, battered book on learning calligraphy. I ripped up the individual strips of letters, then overlapped and stuck them down using some glue called 'Paper Effect' glue. The large letters already had the red colouring on them so I added red to some of the other letters for a co-ordinated look. I then distressed the edge with my red ink pad to match the ones I've already done.

She does work to commission and one of her pieces was shown recently on an episode of 'May the Best House Win'.

Finally today, we went to a Vintage Fair on a local street. I didn't buy anything or even take any photos, but I did spot this lovely scene on the canal as we walked there:
Thanks for looking and for any comments,
