I had a lovely opportunity to work with Amanda and Matt for their special day. The wedding invitation designed for them was based on a theme of “tie the knot” in a casual formal vibe. When Amanda contacted me about their wedding, she described the decorations of burlap, sea glass, rope, chalkboards, and drift wood. From that, and a pinterest board we shared, I came up with several sketches for them to choose from.
Hey there! I actually messed up and used the wrong tool this month, but that’s okay ^_^
I had a very fun month of using the Pentel Aquash waterbrush. I used it along with the Artist’s Loft brand watercolors that can be found at Michael’s for approximately $5.00. It was a lot of fun, but I still needed to get used to the flexibility and almost unpredictability of the brush.
Wow, I can’t believe it’s been a month since the new year. As the end of the first month arrives, I wanted to show my first alphabet of the 12 months, 12 tools, 12 ABCs. I’ve also started using #12abcs to keep these together. ^_^
It’s a new year and there’s a perfectly awesome excuse to have a nicely planned year-long project. Even though, I am 5 days late.. First, a backstory- i’ll try to keep it short.
This has been a long time coming to share this invitation.
Well Ceindy, what took you so long? “Uhhhhhh, Arik?”
This invitation was for my dear friend and fellow designer, Alanna. I was also a bridesmaid for this party and got to put together this awesome and fun invitation for her bachelorette party. We decided to go wine tasting to three separate vineyards in Charlottesville. This invitation was cut and assembled by hand.
