Hello my fellow scribes! I'm very happy about this blog, thank you Bridget for seting it up...you are doing a great job! Now here is one of my scrolls. I have done it for University but when I scaned it in it did not have the recepients name on it. I got the idea from a page of the book of houres made for Galeazzo di Sanseverino and later owned by Alfonso of Aragon, Naples c. 1470 to 1480. I could not do the whole illumination as it is a lot of work and the size of the illumiation was to big for the scroll I wanted to use so I just took the inside border.
I will scan the original later and post it so you can compare.
What I would like to know: Do you think it is ok to just take the inner border? Has anyone of you suggestion on how to do better on the shading or the gold?
oh sory I forgot to introduce myself: I'm Ailitha de Ainwyk. I started with the SCA 4 years ago and started calligraphy and illumination one year later. I'm also one of Bridgets pupil...so she is responsible for getting me hoked and glued to calligraphy and illumination!
And here is the original!
