Despite that I'm sure that I will have as much fun contributing to and reading about the ALAW blog as I did last year.
But now that I have started, I am continuing my love affair with leaf mono prints. I have used them for large and small calligraphic works including illuminated letters. I have also used them for the covers of hand bound books and for greetings cards. Now I have incorporated them into my contribution to ALAW.
The only problem I had was in photographing the letters. The graphite keep turning to a sliver in the photo.
The letters (with thanks to the expert tutoring of Gemma Black at a workshop many months ago) are hand drawn versals using graphite pencil.
