A Peek into the Studio – Hydrangeas, Garden Roses and Vintage Frames

Happy Birthday to me!  Feeling like I’m surrounded by the prettiest presents ever today since The Momental Girls have been painting their hearts out this week! Seriously though, I am feeling quite blessed today especially as l look around the room and dig into photos from our most recent projects.  We have come a long way and still have so much good ahead.  I’m proud to see what we  have created from the smallest moment of art to the biggest triumphs each season seems to bring.  Thank you ladies for being part of my life and making gorgeous art for our Brides. XOXO

Now onto the art!!  Julie’s Garden inspired Big Bloom Wedding Invitations featured pink lilacs and white hydrangeas in a lavish frame around her classic wording layout.  Her venue sketched simply at the top added a sweet personal touch we adore.  One of our favorites papers from Envelopments was used here, soft and shimmery Sea Shell.

Katie and I painted for the better part of yesterday.  Every square inch of of this big and bold seating plan was hand painted right down to each guests’ hand written name!  We are over the moon with each chalky pastel bloom!

Euna‘s table numbers were a blast to paint with each ruffly petaled bloom.  The best part?  The beauties were painted on glass and we can hardly wait to see them on each celebration table!

I picked up these custom teak buttons on Etsy last week.  Nikki and Jess painted away tiny succulents on each!  More on how we used these lovelies soon!

Lastly but not at all least are Fabiola‘s Vintage Frame Painted Peony Wedding Invitations!  Sea Shell paper is used again in all its textured loveliness paired with gold hand painted details and bold pink brushstrokes on each peony.

So what am I up to?
