A Wedding Fraktur

This is not something I usually do, show a picture before I send it out;)
On my ebay group, USAPRIM, we had a contest to make rugs made from patterns, Kelley and I did.
I offered a prize for anyone doing the one I drew and kelley had prizes for hers.
My prize was a custom fraktur with their wedding date on it.
It has been a long time since I have done frakturs and I did not realize how bad my eyes have gotten for closeup and small details. Guess I need to make an eye appointment before I make any more;) I did do another one and messed it up so badly, it went into the garbage.

I really do love to do frakturs and will be painting again and maybe even some folk art pictures, as well.
Hopefully Ginger will like her prize, imperfections and all. The areas around the background scrolls, that look smudged are actually part of the tea ink I use to antique the paper.

Also, check out Cyndi's blog (She Seeketh Wool), on the left. The rug she made is from a design I made for her. She did a beautiful job with the colors and hooking.
