Collaged letter M: I have been trying to concentrate on this series of letters because the project should be in the last stages now and I am only just past halfway. I made a strip stencil of m shapes, positive and negative, and created the border with acrylics and metallic paste. Then brush lettered in watercolour on fine semi-transparent paper, which sucked and bled everytime I paused too long. Many attempts and this is the best. Thank you Gemma for providing the exemplar. I plan on practising much more soon, I also have two excellent books on the subject, so there should be nothing holding me back.
