A Peek into the Studio – A Warm Reminder and My Handwriting

Kelley just took 5 minutes to leave the studio, chatting as the door stood wide open.  I love to chat, but that cold air rushing in was certainly not welcome.  It’s official, winter is on the way in Northeastern PA, but lucky for us we have warm hearted couples and their warm weather wedding invitation designs to keep our spirits up!

First is Elizabeth’s artful suite filled with mindful details.  A striped liner in bold and bright shades of persimmon plays nicely with her watercolor and opaque ink view of the ceremony location.  Suggestion of tropical blooms throughout bring this eclectic suite together in a perfectly coordinated but not too match-y way.

Ahhh, that liner!!  Love the painted liner and it is often so worth the extra budget room.  Such a surprise element to include!

Ashlee’s nautical nod of an invitation design features a sketched topographical map of Key West along with abstract brushstrokes inspired by the ocean and sky.  Love how the painted touches of white look like waves cresting…

All wrapped up sweet with sea grass paper, raffia and and an anchor sketch!

Kimberly and Michael wanted their free hand painted watercolor invitations to read as breezy and fun as their chosen artwork.  They asked me to handwrite their personal greeting to guests, for a lovely, not-too-finished look.  Washes of desert inspired watercolor pay homage to their venue; Montelucia Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.

So what am I up to? 

Wrapping up a little something exciting for 2013 with my friends at Envelopments!

Heading to the Southern Weddings V5 launch party in Chapel Hill, North Carolina!  Check out a peek at a bit of painting we did for their anniversary issue.

Gearing up for an exciting shoot next week at a favorite local venue, The Cottage at Hillside Farms.   Pumped to be working with some incredible artists I’m lucky to call friends.  See you soon Jill and Ryan, Maggie and Sullivan!
