Second catch-up post on Moorea Seal’s 52 Lists. Only three to go, then I’ll have completed all the lists so far.
I used some beautiful bordeaux ink my Dad bought me as a gift on our summer holiday last year in Tuscanny. It didn’t seem to get on with the thin printer paper though and seems to have bled in quite a few places.
I was kind of tired when I did this one, and it shows. Still, embracing imperfection Decided to finish it up despite the fact that I totally skewed the last words in the lines of the last quarter of the page and made the header decoration way too big. Used little golden flower-like shapes as seperators. Odd white space on the right side was balanced with little swirls, that seemed to work quite well. Script is carolingian minuscule, still not brave enough to try the humanistic cursive just yet
