A Little quote that I love...


I wanted to use Celtic lettering from the book of Kells Script for my quote, so I researched and ordered a book called "Celtic Art, the methods of construction" 

I enlarged the font I wanted and then with a light box I traced the letters on stock paper and I had very homemade, rough looking stencils.  I wanted it to be a little "off" I wasn't real particular about leveling etc.  I used my left over Venetian Plaster paint to paint on the words.  It bumps up off the wall a little and in person gives it a nice cozy feel.  Just what I was looking for.

For some reason the picture is showing a bluish hazy area around some of the words, which in actuality isn't there.  Hmmm...I need lessons in photography.

I'm happy with it and when the candles are lit, it feels like a storybook---just like I wanted:)
