Here are a couple of baby cards I made recently using decorated capitals. At a Calligraphy Guild of Indiana meeting in early 2009, Erika Woods showed our guild what she had learned in her class with Nancy Culmone at the Letters Mingle Souls conference. The examples Erika showed were beautiful - very subdued and earthy. I am creating an A-Z alphabet which I'm calling my "Colorific" alphabet. (As in color terrific hopefully and not color horrific.) :)
Speaking of bright colors, have you seen the Jelly Belly masterpieces? I meant to include a little blurb and link back at Easter, but I forgot. Until June 1st, the Indianapolis Children's Museum is exhibiting the works of Kristen Cumings. Kristen created eight mosaics of famous masterpieces, including "Mona Lisa" and "Girl with a Pearl Earring" using...Jelly Belly jelly beans!!
After June 1st, the exhibit will be displayed at the Jelly Belly Visitor Center in Fairfield, California. You can check out the entire gallery of Jelly Bean Art at the company's website by clicking here. (There's even a William and Kate...oops...Catherine piece!)
Have a great weekend everyone.
Go forth and flourish!
