I’m here to share with you everything that I work on creatively for family, friends, myself and clients. Sometimes I’ll talk about what’s on my mind, but those posts will be far and few between.
To begin, let me share with you what I’ve been working on for a client I call the burgundy bride & groom. Olivia is Richard’s, my husband’s (R), cousin and lives in England. She’ll be married in December to Dion. Olivia is a school teacher and Dion is a detective. Both very cool jobs! They’re involving what they do into their table names with movie titles & TV show titles.
Okay, so far these are just school theme titles, but I’m in the process of painting “Chips” so I assure you there will be cop/detective ones too. I used watercolor paint on nice Arches watercolor paper on the above table names. I think that’s such a creative idea! I really enjoy the creativity and personal touches that some brides & grooms put into the details of their wedding celebrations.
Here are the escort cards.
The couple have an Irish heritage. If you look closely, you can see claddaghs, their initials, lucky horseshoes, shamrocks, celtic trinity knots, images of the Newgrange entrance stone in Ireland and hearts. The calligraphy style I wrote for these is a flourished copperplate style with a pointed calligraphy pen and burgundy gouache.
O & D plan to attach these labels,
from Paper Source, inside the escort card with each table name assignment, then each guest can decide where to sit at their assigned table. That certainly makes things much easier.
