Julie's ABCD

I am such a newbie at Blogging, so bear with me!
Since most of you so far are going with the black and white letters, I'll start with the other alphabet and do the black and white last. I love doing paper sculpture, so that is my theme for the two alphabets I will do.
This first alphabet is made from BFK Rives paper on various pastepapers and marbled paper backgrounds. The red circle is gouache, and will be consistant for all the letters. This alphabet is based on a double stroke alphabet by Martin Jackson of Vancouver, Canada. I have added flourishes.

I am so enjoying everybody's alphabets! Beautiful work!!
