Just off the drawing board ...




Certificates written in charcoal, with gold leaf on an ormoline size.




  

Strips of shimmery paper with names in cadmium red gouache
to wrap around scrolled certificates above. To be finished off with ribbon. 

A lovely presentation for the recipients methinks.

Thanks Fi. A very enjoyable job actually. The layout was quirky, a bit different leaving me a lot more satisfied. I love being left to do my own thing :-)
