hi there. i’m epically behind on blogging and sharing what’s new in general. so, this week, i’ll be catching up and sharing lots of newness from oh the last year or two :)
to kick it off, let’s start back at the beginning of the year….
i’ve been so excited to share a new custom design done in collaboration with my super-talented pal robyn at designs by robyn love calligraphy.
calligraphy by designs by robyn love.
the wedding took place in key west and the bride was looking for a super simple yet elegant sea-inspired design…and watercolor was a must. i’ve sooo been missing painting and drawing so i was super excited to take this on. especially since i was working on these in january and loved looking at pics of the sea for inspiration!
i created the design and robyn helped with watercolor calligraphy accents. LOVE! we went around a few times on the calligraphy font and getting the colors juuussst right and eventually landed on what you see here. i just LOVE the way it turned out.
there were tons of pieces for this event…we started with the invitation — a simple, typographical design that had an subtle ombre look, capturing shades of blue found within the sea.
the enclosure cards followed the same simple look and the envelopes were lined with watercolor striped liners, which i so loved hand-painting then editing to strategically give them refined, straight edges for a more modern look, while the inside of the stripes remained a fabulous watercolor texture.
the look carried through the day-of accessories which included table cards and signs, place cards, menus, thank you and welcome notes, all flat-printed on luxe cotton stock. we even doubled up the stock on some pieces to get an uber luxe double-thick feel. swoon.
we’d love to work together to create a custom couture design for you, too! drop us a line and let’s get started!
