Captain Corelli in Purple!

Monday, 10 December 2012

This was to be an anniversary scroll, using a reading from the wedding....

You can see from these two photographs how difficult it can be to match a colour from a picture. I had a photograph of a lovely bride wearing what she called 'mauve'.... which was a different tone from what I would call mauve. And so I used a variety of shades in the decoration of this piece... little pastel squares drifting over the page.... 

It is to be framed in a 12 x 12 inch frame, but we weren't sure whether the ribbon would be included inside the frame or not.... so, I left extra space at the top allowing the scroll to be trimmed from either top or bottom (or both) to fit.

If you would like to commission an original version for yourself just get in touch> suziscribbles at, or take a look in my etsy shop where I also have some prints available> here

wow, just wonderful and I hope they frame it in a shadow box so the ribbon will stand out... x

May this New Year be one of realized dreams… even those we did not realize we were dreaming!
