Illuminating

Testing out what the text would look like in Photoshop.
This is a canvas spread I am working on in my Hat Journal. I took a calligraphy class a million years ago and we did Lombardic Versals and decorated letters. I got inspired to do a decorated letter with acrylics and its has turned into a mixed media decorated Versal with my own twist on it. The canvas was prepped with Gesso and I mixed black and white with my palette knife to get various greys.

Next I want to add text of a big list of hat styles and types. Then I dunno . . .
