This Celtic knot border was the most difficult to date. The outside border was first a pen and ink drawing and then scanned into Photoshop where it was colorized and texturized. The inner border was drawn as a graphite pencil drawing and then scanned into Photoshop, using the multiply feature of the layer palette placed onto scanned parchment. The serpentine Lions to the right and left of the border was also a graphite drawing added the same way to the page. The symbols of the top, sides and bottom represent the four elements. The top center represents earth, center left represents water, center right represents Air and bottom center represents fire. The symbols in the outside corners represent the seasons of the year. The symbol in the top left represents winter, the symbol in the top right- spring, the symbol in the bottom left- summer, and the symbol in the bottom right - autumn.
