Big Fiddle


My friend Andi's husband, Mark, has a daughter, Liz, who is extremely talented and getting her degree out on the East Coast somewhere fancy schmancy. She is putting together her first solo album and asked if I would papercut a cover for the album. I was excited to. She sent me her blog that has all the songs from her album (visit Big Fiddle) with the idea that the insert can unfold to reveal a whole poster. She wanted it to tell a story and since there were so many visual images from the names of the songs, I thought I'd represent them in the vines. Liz and her husband Andrew were a delight to work with and I think it turned out lovely. Can you tell what songs each image represents?

Wow. It's so beautiful. I have a question; how do you attach the cut paper to backing paper? I'm just an amateur and don't really know how...
