amazing detail in the center!!!
have a grand weekend Amy :))

Amy Lilley Designs said...

Thank you Leslie..awesome is good!!!

Heather, this one, maybe because it's the last of the series, is really been more of a challenge...lots of erasing and fixing, sort of...very, very slow go...but, I've started on 'the other side' and will work on it again tomorrow...thank you Heather...have a great weekend...:)))

Ah ha Kim...we were commenting @ the same time...love that...I took artistic license w/ the middle part by connecting the stars w/ the circles...the circles were not there...but it worked...like I said to Heather, will work on it some more tomorrow...going very, very slowly...you too, dear Gal, have a great weekend...:))))

Very interesting project Amy..
Don't know why, but when I look at intricate old items, I'm always amazed at the time and care that went into them as opposed to much of the stuff we use today.
Are you going to develop these in color, or leave them as pencil drawings?

Amy Lilley Designs said...

Free On-Line...thank you!!!

Mark, obviously, I feel the same way you do...I imagine that I would have a life-time of work if I were to just draw Victorian doorknobs...these 3, so different, so beautifully crafted...ahhhh, you should see the back-plate!!! My son is home from college, so we will play w/ these on photoshop, but, I plan to leave them as is (going to make cards,6, 2 of each)...there's something so pure about a pencil drawing! Have a great Sunday out there in sunny Ca!!!

Deb DiSalvo said...

Wow- you are so talented! Love it!

Amy Lilley Designs said...

dearest Ms. Muse...just exactly what I needed to hear today, as I finished the doorknob...thank you so much for the encouragement, as YES, I was so inspired today...you simply cannot force these drawings...it has to happen, piece by piece, 1/64th of an inch @ a time...blessings...:)))

Thank you Miss Deb...this is my foundation, THE PENCIL drawings...this is what I love!!!
