Tag Tuesday-Letter I


Continuing with the alphabet theme over on Tag Tuesday, we are on letter I this week
I is for Illuminated letter.
For my I tag I have made an illuminated letter I using photos from Lindisfarne Priory, which were taken by C &G tutor Shelagh Folgate. I played around with them and coloured them in with gel pens. I knew I would never be able to copy the Celtic patterns myself, they are so complicated! I would like to make an embroidered textile from this one day, as I think it would work well in embroidery.
