Lord of the Dance - Title Page

My Imagine8 art group met today. One of our ongoing projects has been an altered book round robin. For this session, I had Peggy's book. Her theme was dance. I decided to do my pages on the verses in the song "Lord of the Dance." This picture shows the title, which I wrote on a piece of lavender scrapbooking paper. The letters in the word "Lord" are versals (which are drawn letters, as opposed to written letters.) They got this name, because they were traditionally enlarged and used to begin verses in illuminated manuscripts. They were usually colored and/or decorated. In this rendition, I used a purple and an aqua Gelly Roll Stardust pen. The book's pages were painted with metallic acrylic paints.
