I've been busy this week working on decoupage wall hangings made from my digital collage prints. Illuminated manuscript images have caught my eye (they are so lovely, and so hard to find quality photos of the pages that are also copyright free/public domain). This particular illuminated manuscript border came from Vintage Printable. I am sad that I will never see one of these pages in real life; the originals are all in private collections, or in museums and libraries overseas where they originated centuries before the United States was born. For some beautiful examples, check out the Flickr group Manuscripta Mediaevalia.
