This is the family just after the presentation of the citation speech & the scroll.
I think the scroll looked the part when it was finished & rolled & tied :-)
It was designed & printed out on suitable paper just bigger than A3 to allow for the rolling onto the rollers.
I then embossed the rays of the large motif using heat embossing & gold embossing powder
For the crown I used a gold ink pen.
I embellished the 2 main letters of the University of Life again with the gold ink pen.
The celtic motif around the edge was filled in using the gold pen & I made tassels to go onto the end of the beaded ribbon.
Could have done with more practice time to get the wax seal a bit better.
But it did the job & looked the part as long as you don't look too closely! :-)
The rollers were made from doweling with the ends glued in place, both sprayed gold.
All in all it turned out better than I hoped when I started making it :-)
