as much as i love the suburbs and nature, i have to admit, there is way more happening in a city. check out what i found on my walk to work this morning! i love when its 8 am and the good vibes are being passed on!
this tuesday i am sharing a new personal project i want to get started on. sometimes i forget to experiment and create designs for myself so i started a list of all sorts of things i would like to illustrate. i think my number one thing to work on is incorporating texture into more of my work [and of course, illustrating cacti made the list]. hopefully i stick with it!
jill and william professed their love beneath the PA-NJ bridge at the lambertville station this past may. this location meant a lot to them as a couple originally from each of the bordering states. the historic seafoam green new hope-lambertville bridge had to make an appearance into the suite. mandy, of myrtle and lloyd, painted a beautiful, custom watercolor illustration of the bridge which we had printed on translucent vellum. we used this artwork as an overlay on top of the invitation suite which allowed some of the invitation elements to peek through. the suite was finished with a playful criss cross wrapping with natural twine. the romantic large, loopy names on the invitation were the handiwork of mary ellen, of calligraphy by mary ellen, which were also used on the custom return address stamp. the invitations arrived to wedding guests in navy envelopes hand addressed with rose gold metallic ink also by mary ellen. we loved collaborating with our friendors to create such a personal invitation!
creating anything should never be stressful (at least in my opinion), so when i find that it is becoming stressful what do i do? i create more! i didn’t have any ideas, so i just started with lines… and lines became patterns. next thing i knew i had a full page of beautiful pattern.
happy tuesday loveleighs! today is the day i tell you a little more about the postable series i have been working on. this badly wrapped cactus is a snippet of one out of three birthday cards. all three use the same color and pattern and are just as fun as this preview! don’t worry, the other two will be revealed soon enough.
