Roman Rebels - Barbara Close Class

I took a ZOOM class with Barbara Close, "Roman Rebels", March 9 & 10. 2024 hosted by Idaho Calligraphy Guild. Love her style. 

Roman Rebels - Alpha Blue & Green & Alpha Brights
size: each 5.5"sq
On Bee Super Deluxe paper wrote out the alphabet with a Zig Writer interlocking and twisting the letters... Painted with Koi Coloring Brush pens.
I'm a more colorful person so repeated the design (minus one little detail...) and painted with various brands of watercolors. 





Roman Rebels - Pressure Release - Mysterious
size: 5.5"w x 6.5"h
On Canson Mixed Media paper wrote out the quote using a Caran d'Ache Grafwood 4B pencil in a pressure release style. (still need more practice...)
words: The most beautiful understanding in the world is that of the mysterious. Albert Einstein.

Roman Rebels - BFly Dreams
size: 5.5"w x 3"h
On Canson Mixed Media paper masked out the border and applied Pan Pastels in a brownish and yellowish tones. Removed the mask and wrote out the words with a pointed nib and Sumi ink. Added the BFly and leaf sprig. 

Roman Rebels - Enjoy Every Moment
size: 3.5"w x 5.5"h
On Staples 110# cardstock drew in my border with the bullet tip of a red Zig Writer. Wrote in my words in overlapping abstract design using a Zig Wrter. Colored the background areas with the orangey color and the 1st letter of most of the words with the reddish color. Wrote the words under the abstract but will need to redo that area... messy...
words: Enjoy every moment of your special day.   

Roman Rebels - Get Well Soon

size: 5"w x 7"h
On Staples 110# cardstock masked off my border with Washi tape and applied a couple tones of green Pan Pastels. Transferred my lettering design and wrote them out with a pointed nib and Sumi ink in pressure release style. Added the horizontal lines. Used a kneaded eraser to remove color in some letters. Added the outside border.
words: The main function of your big to is to make sure all the furniture is in the right place. Get Well Soon  












ID: Roman Rebels - HB Sarkis card
size: 7"w x 5"h
On Staples 110# cardstock masked out the border and applied Pan Pastels in a couple tones of blue. Wrote out the name using a ZIG Calligraphy 3.5 pen. Added a green shadow line with a Mattehop pen and then added graphite shading with a Caran d'Ache 4.B pencil and paper stump. Doodled3 letters with Bleed Proof white ink and Pointed nib.
Added the "Happy Birthday" with a Juice Up pen.
