A Peek into the Studio – Watercolor Leaf Wedding Invitations

As we sit here with the freezing wind blowing outside I desperately needed a breath of fresh air…a reminder of all things Spring to come.  So here we have it.  A few years back I created a collection of wedding invitation suites inspired by the seasons.  This Watercolor Leaf invitation suite was my homage to Spring.  I chose a monochromatic palette of strong greens and hand painted every piece…no printed watercolor finishes here…not a chance.

Jill and Ryan from With Love and Embers brought such emotion to each image and somehow were able to capture the spirit in each.  One of my favorite moments below is the vintage thread buckle designed to secure all pieces.

Textured stocks mimicking watercolor paper allowed the watercolor brushstrokes to really come alive!
