Art and Illumination



"Wings " is the theme at the Take A Word challenge this week and I was inspired by label art in making this digital collage. I love old Botanica and the art of illuminated lettering (Celtic) in this case and combined the two here.  Imagery from Dover ,Graphics 45 and Christine Renee.
