Press – Words to Love By for Snippet and Ink

I was asked to create a series of artwork by our friends at Snippet and Ink.  Inspired by poignant love quotes I developed five new watercolor patterns to express the words of each poet.

{Such an honor to be part of Words to Love By for Snippet and Ink!}

Notice I also tried my hand at some hand lettering – really just a fancier version of my handwriting!

We’re often asked by couples to help them discover lovely words, quotes, scripture and the like, that express the power of a love story.  It can be difficult to find the right words that haven’t been overused and consequently lacking in expressiveness.  This is part of the reason I’m so in love with Snippet and Ink’s series.
