Thanks to everyone who entered our Valentine’s Day contest. We enjoyed looking at all of the submissions and are excited to see both winners’ work printed on custom tiles. Because we appreciate all those who took time to enter, we wanted to share not only our winners, but also the various entries we received for this contest.
Our winner in the calligraphy division is the talented Julie Gray. For her entry, Julie used Arches Text Wove and watercolor paper and four colors of Winson and Newton Gouache (cadmium yellow pale, spectrum red, opera rose and phthalo blue) to create this dynamic blend of paper cutting and calligraphy. Her creative phrase only adds to this fun piece!
Our winner in the Zentangle division is Cathy Craft of British Columbia. Her intricate, lovely piece, entitled “Mother and Child”, was created with a 005 Micron in black and 110lb. acid free paper.
Entries came in from near and far. Other entries into our calligraphy division included the following:
Mother and daughter Camille and Rose Werther from Louisiana submitted these two designs. Camille used Borden and Riley layout paper, a Parallel Pen filled with Higgins Eternal, and Prismacolor colored pencils to create her design. Rose wanted to send us a manga style design and created a script to match her drawing. She used a Micron, Parallel Pen, Prismacolor pencil, colored pencils and Borden and Riley layout paper to create her design.
