I took inspiration from Celtic designs for this piece.  Used sepia ink for the
lettering and a size 3 nib for the Uncial handlettering.  The letter “B”
I  created from a design you can find in “Designs
from the Book of Kells
” which is altered to work in the piece. Her books are
very useful as she has a couple books I have learned from.  The boarder was
inspired by multiple designs I found using “55
Classic Celtic Boarders
”  There are many good Celtic books to learn from
about this and a search on amazon.com will show you many.

  1. Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using? I’m going to start my own
    blog soon but I’m having a tough time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design and style seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. Simply desire to say your article is as surprising. The clearness in your post is simply spectacular and i can
    assume you’re an expert on this subject. Well with your permission
    allow me to grab your RSS feed to keep up to date with forthcoming post.
    Thanks a million and please keep up the enjoyable work.
