A page from my sketchbook journal, using colored pencils and watercolor wash.
I can’t get enough of the old photos, especially groups like this one. Smile, ladies!
Sometimes I will alter the colors digitally in collages, but here I used different colored tissue paper over the text pieces and placed the image of the group on top.
These last few weeks I’ve been asked to make some invitations and notecards. First there was my niece’s baby shower. She’s expecting twin boys and is decorating the babies’ room with an elephant theme in khaki and light blue, so I used that to design this invitation and thank you card for her.
Another project was to make notecards for a tennis player friend to give her girls, who also play tennis.
I made lots of sketches and decided on these as samples to show her. We ended up using numbers one, three and four to personalize for the three girls. They were printed on a cream-colored card stock with matching envelopes.
Next up is a wedding invitation suite for a couple who will be married in July. More on that in a future post!
