Elaine's April Letters

I am amazed that there are so many different techniques that can be used to create letters. I thought I would have run out by now. It is great fun, but as far as colour goes I am looking forward to using lots more of that in the 2nd alphabet!

Week 14. R - EW
Cola pen filled with red gouache and silver acrylic gouache.

Week 15. W - EW
I wrapped string around a piece of wood to make a W-shaped stamp then printed it using acrylic gouache. Second W stitched with red thread using a sewing machine.

Week 16. Q - EW
I used a compass and gilding mix and then laid down artificial silver leaf. The red gouache marks were also made with the compass.

Week 17. C - EW
Using the silver acrylic ink bottle dropper I wrote onto a black and white photo. Red paper highlight.

Elaine, I love your letters! They are so full of creativity and life. Yes, it will be so interesting to see them together and then applied to writing. Sue in South Africa

Elaine these are brilliant again! I love the freedom and expression in them and your control - just loose enough without ever being messy!
