2017-04 - Racaire - coronation - scroll - winner kings champion tournament - SCA - kingdom of MeridiesThis is the second “viking scroll”, as I call them, which I made so far.

…and apropos second “viking scroll” – maybe you remember my very first “viking scroll” for Kail’s knighting. Ok, I admit that Kail’s knighting scroll turned out so much better than I initially thought but I am still quite surprised about the fact that I was commissioned with not only one but two “viking scrolls” till now. *lol* I really can’t repeat it often enough – this is not my field of expertise! *lol*

Scriptorium – scroll for the “Rose Tournament” at Gulf Wars finished! :D

2017-03_Racaire_scriptorium_rose-tournament-scroll_3_finishedWooohooo! The scroll for the “Rose Tournament” is finished! 😀

After all the recent postings about my progress concerning this project, I proudly present to you a picture of my finished scroll for the winner of the “Rose Tournament”. A tourney which will take place at the upcoming Gulf Wars event! 😀

Looking back it seems like I just started working on this scroll. However, I know just too well that I worked for about 2 weeks on it. It is really amazing how fast time can go by when you are concentrating on a project. Like the hours just flew by as i was adding paint and ink to the pergamenata. But all that really counts at the end is that the project is finished and that I am proud of the outcome! 😀

Scriptorium – working on the scroll for the “Rose Tournament” at Gulf Wars .1

2017-03_Racaire_scriptorium_rose-tourney-scroll_2…and finally, after finishing the two scrolls which were on my to-do list, as well as the artwork for the vigil book for my husbands knighting, I am able to catch some breath again. And it’s definitely time to show you more of the progress that I made concerning my most recent projects. Well, at least the progress of the projects which don’t need to remain secret until they’ve reached their recipient at war… 😉

In todays posting I am going to show you an update concerning the scroll for the winner of the rose tournament, which will be held at Gulf Wars. I’ve already posted about my very first progress concerning this scroll here: “Scriptorium – working on the scroll for the “Rose Tournament” at Gulf Wars and some new blank scrolls…”

Scriptorium – working on the scroll for the “Rose Tournament” at Gulf Wars and some new blank scrolls… :D

2017-02 - Racaire - scriptorium - rose tournament scroll progress - Gulf Wars - illumination - SCA…and now, that I got the “ok” to share my current project with you, I can spill the news and reveal what I was working on during the last days:

The scroll for the
“Rose Tournament”
at Gulf Wars! 😀

Though being asked to provide the scroll for the winner of the “Rose Tournament” at Gulf Wars – a very prestigious and great tournament – was quite a surprise for me, I felt very honored and immediately agreed to take on this task. And knowing that some of my dear friends as well as my husband will take part in this tournament – either as fighter or inspiring “rose” (former queens within the SCA who joined the Order of the Rose after their reign was over) – makes this special scroll assignment a very sweet task for me. But don’t worry – I am a quite “professional” scribe of the Kingdom of Meridies who is not biased and I promise to use my best hand to insert the name of the winner, whoever it might be… 😉

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”.
