Over the course of yesterday evening my student, Ælfwynn Leoflæde dohtor, and I managed to talk each other into participating in this challenge. I'm going for depth: My goal is to complete 50 award scrolls (for new awards and for backlog awards) all based on period exemplars and with full documentation of my choices and materials. (Right now many of my materials are not period, I know, but I hope that as I progress in meeting this challenge I will slowly work towards more and more medieval paints/inks/pens, etc.)

I'm going to count towards the challenge two scrolls that I did earlier this year, one in March, an AoA in 15th C Dutch style, and the other in June, a Laurel scroll based on a 15th C manuscript about the Toison d'Or (the pictures haven't yet been added to this page). I'm currently working on another AoA scroll based on images in the Visconti Hours.
