Calligraphy Flourish Friday

This is a mandala I already had done and scanned.  With Photoshop Elements I removed the initial in the center and then changed the colors.  I'm not sure why I can't enlarge it without it getting so blurry and pixelated. Hopefully it doesn't look too bad here. 

I finished my paste paper book.  If you would like to see it in page by page order you can click here.
I used a quote by Leo Buscaglia which I love.

We are having some work done in our house. If I don't get off the computer, I will be trapped in this room for the rest of the day.  I can't have that - because I would miss all the great, college basketball that's on tv today. :-)

Have a great weekend...Go forth and flourish!!


  1. Jane, I love your flourish! You did a great job.

    I know the frustrations of Photoshop, as I am working with it today. You can reduce, but not increase, or things become pixalated.

    It looks great from here though!

    It is all basketball in my house this weekend too! ;0

    Have a fun weekend!

  2. i SO enjoyed watching your flickr slideshow.....your new book is gorgeous, jane!! what an absolute treasure! i love all of the little cut-outs and offset embossing that you've included to showcase your exquisite lettering!! bravo, girlfriend! enjoy your weekend of basketball, you sweet little hoosier!! xox, :))

  3. Hi, Jane, Your paste paper book is just gorgeous. I loved it and love the quote too. It is so nicely done and your lettering is so free and beautiful, great job.

  4. Jane - beautiful flourish (as always!). The paste paper book - WOW! Just beautiful and the lettering is gorgeous!

  5. Jane, the book is wonderful! Really, I am truly impressed with the layout and design. The text is brought to light in such a meaningful way by the design of each page. Good Job!

  6. This is a wonderful flourish and the paste paper book is fabulous. Looks like one of Rosie Kelly's!

  7. Hi Jane, Lovely stuff!
    The sharpness of your image depends on the resolution you scan at - just send me an email if you want me to clarify it for you. Rx.
