Rosanella's Golden Dolphin by Merwenna Rosanella's Golden Dolphin by Merwenna
This is Thing One & Thing Two's very first collaborative scroll project! Why oh why did we wait this long?

I only did the calligraphy! All illuminationy bits done by Letia Thistelthueyt. She rocks the Flemish stuff.

This is a GoA level award scroll for an awesome lady in our barony, Windmasters' Hill. It's based on the Mira calligraphiae monumenta. (Flemish and Hungarian, Austria, 1561- 1562 and about 1591 - 1596) It was also done in separate parts, by a calligrapher and then an illuminator, which is the order we did it in. We are *so. period. zomgz.*

First time I've done calligraphy from this source - it's all crazy - I think that the GIANT SWOOPS work well to distract from any mess-ups with the actual writing.

(Also apologies to His Majesty for abbreviating his name. MAH BAD.)

I am in love with the overall pattern the flourishes give it. That's what music should look like...lol.

The flourishes are definitely my favorite part!

It's like a net made of calligraphy. Pretty cool.
