Scriptorium – Meridian Grand Tournament – a scroll for the winner of the Armatura

2016-09 - Racaire - MGT - Meridian Grand Tournament - Legio Ursi - Legion of the Bears - Armatura tournament - scrollLast but not least I have the pleasure to present to you my scroll for the winner of the Armatura tournament!

Wow! The last weekend was truly amazing!
My husband and I travelled to Tennessee – to the Meridian Grand Tournament – and brought a rather special package to the event. It was a scroll for the winner of the Armatura tournament sponsored by the “Order of the Legio Ursi” / “Legion of the Bear”.

But first things first… As some of you might already know, is my husband a proud member of the “Legion of the Bear”, as well as some other dear friends of mine. Therefore I was really excited when I got the commission to create the scroll for the Armatura tournament sponsored by the “Legio Ursi”.

Scriptorium – new scroll blanks for the Kingdom of Meridies :)

2016-09 - Racaire - misc calligraphy - scrolls - SCA - Batarde hand - Bastarda - SCA blank scrolls - Kingdom of MeridiesWell, this was definitely a first for me. Never before did I go home after an SCA event with more scroll blanks than I had before… *lol*

But first things first. Mistress Mara Palmer, who is doing an awesome job coordinating the scrolls supplied by the local scribes with the scroll demand of the current Royal Majesties, had several blanks with lovely artwork in her case.

My SCA scrolls and calligraphy for “Not So Grand 8” :D

My SCA scrolls and calligraphy for "Not So Grand 8"

*Woooohoooo* It is monday! That means that the weekend and also the SCA event “Not So Grand 8” are over and I can show you my scrolls and my calligraphy for the event… 😀

I didn’t get to practice my “Bastarda” – my preferred calligraphy hand – very often during the last months therefore I very appreciated this small “scroll commission” of my lord. This is always a great opportunity for me to get creative and to play around. I had a lot of fun working at this scrolls. 😀

I made two scrolls on “Pergamenata” for the winner of the fighting and the winner of the A&S and 3 “Thank you scrolls” for helping at the event. My sweetheart informed me about the recipients of the scrolls: Hrothgar won the fighting, Willielmus won A&S and my “Thank you scrolls” went to Gue’rert de Verrene, Werner von Seitz, and Ruth Alvey – I am sure they are well deserved. Congratulations!

…and now some photos of my scrolls and calligraphy for you – enjoy! 😀
