'Be Thankful' Fraktur

Just finished my 
"Be Thankful" Fraktur for Thanksgiving.
Found an old frame with glass and stained it a darker walnut ... 


I used Celery Fine Parchment paper rather than the Antique color. 
It was stained for a subtle olde time look.  
The coloring was done with watercolour paints and I used the traditional dip pen for inking the design.
I included my interpretation of a 'Harvest Moon', some dried corn stalks  and of course a pumpkin for desert.  Finally embellished with a few 'coma strokes'.
A simple design...

What fun I had creating this...

Hope you like it...

Peace to all,
Barb
