Learn how to create this Letter D. You can download this PDF and follow the step by step instructions to create this letter for yourself. It is a companion letter to my free workshop, The St Alban's Psalter border. You can paint the background gold, or if you would like instructions on how to use gold leaf, then I recommend my other workshop, " Romanesque Divine Inspiration ".

I believe that keeping this beautiful art form alive is very important, so I want to teach you and help perpetuate this time honoured tradition. I also see how illumination can be used to help you. As a gentle, meditative practice; it calms the mind and helps you to focus. In a busy, digital world… it is important to take time out for yourself, make something tangible and connect to your inner creativity. Most of all, the act of creating the beauty for yourself, helps to restore your own inner balance.
