These look fun!  They remind me of Lombardic capitals in a way and would be fun to use with Joanne Fink's Zenspiration ideas for decorated capitals.

Always inspiring, always generous, always there with new ways to put our pens and ink to work !  Thanks again and again, Erica !!   I think I'll be sharing this fun activity , (which is both a review and a creative opportunity), with a group of children, ( grandchildren included), at my house. They'll be learning, I'll be reviewing and we'll both be having creative fun making tags and cards !!!  Three cheers for Erica !!!!!!<3
