New work ~ Word Keepers

Thank-you for taking the time to look at my new Word Keepers. Please scroll down to see samples of the three sizes ~ 6"X6" for short quotes, 10"X10"for medium-length quotes, 12"X12" for longer quotes. The hand-lettering is done on watercolor paper that has been painted with acrylics. The paper is mounted on a decorative fabric square which is secured to a piece of painted Baltic birch.
