Old Love Letters

I am looking forward to my 4 day weekend to work in my studio ( AKA the dining room). I have a new project I'm really excited about involving old photos, letters, and fabric. My Grandpa Zupsic wrote letter after letter to my Grandma during WWII.  It was before they married and their courtship was very much via post. As a kid I would have never pegged my Grandpa as a romantic, but I have the letters to prove he was.
I've started layering the letters, envelopes, telegrams, and newspaper clippings he sent her to scan and print on fabric. I must say they are looking beautiful! I have also printed old photos of them to use in this collage. I'm going to piece them all together, sew on some embellishments, and see where it goes.

Here are a couple of pictures of what I am working with.
