Illuminated Mermaid Manuscripts

An illuminated manuscript is a manuscript in which the text is supplemented with such decoration as initials, borders (marginalia) and miniature illustrations. These are the first attempts at designing pages with the Mermaid Love Letters.

Do you have any quotes or messages that would be appropriate for the mermaids? I’ll be working with them in active imagination more to see what they have to say. For these designs I used some quotes from other people.

Greeters of the deep ocean.

“Greet every morning with open arms and say thanks every night with a full heart. Each day is a precious gift to be savored and used, not left unopened and hoarded for a future that may never come.” – Regina Brett

Lovers of the deep ocean.

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.
– Mahatma Gandhi

Mermaid Love Letter Illuminated Manuscripts2

Keepers of the deep ocean.

If you swim effortlessly in the deep oceans, ride the waves to and from the shore, if you can breathe under water and dine on the deep treasures of the seas; mark my words, those who dwell on the rocks carrying nets will try to reel you into their catch. The last thing they want is for you to thrive in your habitat because they stand in their atmosphere where they beg and gasp for some air.” – C. JoyBell C.
