Lesson 1: Small Bar Borders Lesson 1 Mistress Dairine Mor o' uHigin, OLAKA Gael Stirler Small bar borders, like the one in the picture to the right, were often used around text and miniatures in period manuscripts. Many different patterns were used--from those as simple as a line--to elaborate vines and geometric shapes. In nearly all cases the borders were painted red, pink or blue. If red and blue borderes were combined, the artists were careful to keep a balance between the colors as in this example.

Top Ten Best Novels You've Never Heard Of - The Journal Pulp Or perhaps you have. Yet the following list, laid out in no particular order (with the exception of Number 1), is relatively obscure: Nothing is as it seems under the sharp western sun. After recovering from an enigmatic and near-fatal illness, Gasteneau, a man with an iron will, glimpses something so extraordinary and so horrific that he feels his life irrevocably altered. But did he really see what he thinks he saw? In the aftermath of his sickness, he’s also drawn deeper into a resolution he made just prior to getting sick: to seek out a piece of evidence that shows with certainty God’s hand at work upon the earth. BEYOND WORDS: Mandala Journal Tutorial - finally!! I have finally completed my tutorial for the making of my Mandala Journal. I tried to keep it to three parts, but, well... you can skip certain parts if you aren't wanting to experience things like paper maché! I think I'll let the videos do the teaching, and wait for questions to come in - then, as they do, I will update this post and address them rather than try to guess at what I've left out - because I'm sure I've left some stuff out!! Part I goes over applying joint compound, or wall spackle, to your book board covers. Part II is the finishing of the spackle. Part III is the creation of the interior board pages, which are paper maché.

Tissue Rose Piñata {DIY Feature} And Chickabug Giveaway Winner I was blown away when I first saw the gorgeous tissue rose piñata from the Cornish Fairies Party by Nicole of Tradewind Tiaras. Nicole was kind enough to share the instructions on creating it, so if you love it as much as I do, you can do it yourself and create one at home! Nicole mentioned the thought of using it at a bridal or baby shower--basically, these aren't just for children, but adults can enjoy them too!!! Materials You Will Need: One balloon (Nicole went with a 24" round version, to avoid that distinct oblong balloon shape, but any would work)One glass filled with stones to act as a weightTapeNewspaper cut into stripsWallpaper paste Whitework Class Handout Whitework is a form of illumination that dates from around the 11th century or so (maybe even a little earlier), and was taken to high perfection in the Renaissance. To do it takes practice and patience, a steady hand for long thin lines, and a little bit of self-perfection. The following is my attempt to explain how to do it... but it is a very hands on and visual type of technique, so I’m not sure a handout such as this can do it justice. I always add a drop (off the end of a brush) of gum arabic to my paints when I do the initial mixing, mainly because W&N tends to skimp on it in their tube gouache for shipping, but they add a bit more glycerin, so you need to remove it as you squeeze color out of the tube.
