The Tissues of the Life to Be Autograph Card
"The tissues of the life to be
We weave with colors all our own
And in the fields of destiny
We reap as we have sown."
A lovely sentiment to share in congratulations of a job well done, or for someone who has weathered a tough situation with strength and grace. Printed in matte finish gold ink next to an original drawing of mine of Queen Anne's Lace printed in pale blue-green.
Autograph Cards grew out of my love for my Great Grandmother's own autograph book from the 1890s, which my dad now has and keeps safe. The entire book was filled with messages of love and friendship from her friends and family; beautiful poems and phrases from more than a century ago, scratched out in elegant penmanship.
I've hand lettered messages from her book for each of these cards, mimicking the scrawl of my great grandmother Edna Foster Campbell's loved ones, and paired each with a botanical drawing of my own.
