Princesses Royale thank yous


Half of a set of thank you scrolls for the four children of TRM(Mary Grace and Havorth). The other 2 were created by Magdalena, which as she was not local to me made for an interesting process to make them appear as a set. We chose dimensions, hand, layout rubric, and decided on portraits in the initials. 

Based on several indentures from HenryVII. The layout mostly from the first and the hand from the second.  Henry’s heraldic badges were swapped out for those of the giving King and Queen, resulting in a very green and gold color scheme.
