Gemma's late letters

Herewith are my remaining letters for the first half of the ALaW project. Apologies to all, especially Fiona, for the delay in getting these to the blog. I won't take up space with the lot in detail, just the "O".
The letters have been written with a ruling pen using Instacol as a size upon which I laid 23ct transfer gold leaf. The support is left over in-class tan demonstration paper. I have used Winsor & Newton's bleedproof white with a pointed nib for the doodling.
I have had a good six months to ponder my ALaW second half and (as of last weekend ... I will reveal later) I am all ready to go with them.
Thank you to all of you who have contributed the wonderfully inspiring ALaW works we see here on the blog. Let's see where the second half takes us and the final outcome for presentation and exhibition. I am excited by this prospect.
I hope you enjoy these as much as I have enjoyed the project.

Ce sont de belles couleurs. C'est très beau également de les voir ainsi ensemble.

These are beautiful colors. It is also very nice to see them all together.

Love them Gemma - can I have the 'M' please? And the 'E' and 'G' would be nice too! Very lush, luxurious and decadent letters, where mine are very utilitarian!
