A mega accordion book- 5 feet long!

Friday, 11 July 2014

What a love story this turned out to be! A lovely lady called Lisa asked about an extra special love letter to include a marriage proposal. We decided on a concertina book with a couple of envelopes for keepsakes such as a show ticket & a pressed flower from milestone dates. Well…. the idea sort of grew… and grew.


We decided on colours early on; natural tones, charcoal & sand… layers of watercolour… more water… more colour… some acrylic...


I asked her to think about special events along the way… 
dates, places, songs etc… little things that tell their story...


She told me their tale of synchronicity & bliss, of cold feet & separation; yet always on each others mind…. until they finally re-united...


Just as their story has many strands, I wove snippets of songs alongside tender memories...


 layering their tale in a book of love… 


Extra pages stitched in, for her to write a personal letter in her own hand...


A proposal hidden at the very end...




books within books, pages to unfold...



quotes about love & words they have spoken…



 space for a ring to hide?
