Artist and Craft Guerrilla Deborah Daniel has already started working on next September's Art Trail piece. Because of the proximity of Valentine's day and the LOVE EASY fair she's found inspiration for her project and would love for you to be included.
"For the next Art Trail I'm compiling a participative public art project where people are invited to write a LOVE NOTE completely anonymously. This can be to your first love, present partner, pet, granny or to the "one that got away".
It's a great way to get it off your chest or to finally let go or come to terms with an unrequited love!"
Messages will be on display as part of the Beautiful Interiors Valentine's window then later on the collection of notes will be compiled into a lovely hand bound book illustrated by guest artists and sold at several outlets. The profits of the book will go to charity which has yet to be decided.
If you want to include your entry please comment anonymously at the end of this post and all submissions will be transcribed.
Illustrators: If you'd like to submit work please contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org
