A Peek into the Studio – A Tropical Retreat…in Painted Papers

I don’t know about you, but I could certainly use a little retreat.  Warm sun and breezes would be so…well you know, right about now.  So sit back, take a deep breath to get lost if only for a moment in these Tropical Inspired Wedding Invitations and save the dates.  I can almost hear the waves crashing…

First are Seema’s bold and bright Watercolor Save the Dates honoring the majestic beauty of St. Lucia landscapes.

Next are Rachel’s Bird of Paradise Wedding Invitations where burlap textures and abstract elements combine to create quite the impression! Each pouch was free hand painted with a impressionistic version of the invitation’s more detailed watercolor.  An abstract sunset sketched with a brush onto each “Costa Rica Bound” tag was the finishing moment.

Lastly are Christina’s Watercolor Protea Save the Dates!  I love the textures revealed by every brushstroke and of course the pencil lines remaining from the first sketches… Take a look here to get a peek at what’s coming for Christina’s invitations!

So for now, we are back to reality and back to the painting table!  Hugs to Seema, Rachel and Christina for inspiring us all and lending the vision to create these bold designs!
