bold-greece-wedding-invitations

A wedding in Greece…oh yes indeed.  Add to that, a location that seems untouched by the generations and lives out its days much like it had maybe 80 years ago. {Oh my lovely.} Imagine setting an intimate table for 12 or 15 amidst the sunshine of the coast pouring itself into every nook and cranny.  The warm breezes swirl around you and the sky’s blue color is almost blinding but somehow in the most delightful way.  This scene, these thoughts are what inspired our contribution here.  Bold blooms and reserved but highly textural painted details set apart these two distinct stationery […]

Hey friends!!  So I’ve begun a new series on the equally new app Periscope.  If you’re not familiar yet, the short of it is this.  Periscope is this sweet and powerful little app developed by the folks over at Twitter.  It enables live broadcasts from anywhere in the world for lengthy duration. This past Monday I went live with my first scheduled “scope” as these broadcasts are now being called.  A 90 minute watercolor paint along was the result and I was excited to see the artwork of many of the viewers! {So each Wednesday I will announce the topic […]

So when an artist is asked to paint for a well known brand, it’s pretty exciting.  Late last year our friends at Plum Pretty Sugar came to me with an idea and today I am so honored to share the fruits of this idea! {BHLDN carries an exclusive collection of Bridesmaid and Flower Girl Robes from Plum Pretty Sugar and now one of our watercolor pieces is part of this collection!} We worked through about 6 different pattern options in various palettes but landed on what we call our Peach Peony Garden pattern. {Have a closer look at the pattern!}

Various elements were developed for Laura to include greenery sprays, wreaths and a botanical flower chart.  Taking cues from vintage botanical prints, our spin on the same infused bold color and gold hand painting throughout. {There is something exciting about considering all surfaces of your invitation suite.  The back of the invite or edges of a 4 ply cardstock are valuable space to make a statement.} A video posted by Kristy Rice (@momental) on Aug 4, […]

bold-watercolor-flower-pattern

I’ve been doing a lot of late nights these days.  Not sure if I’m trying to pump myself up for sleepless baby nights or what but less sleep has been my mantra as of late.  Something about the quiet of the house when you’re the only one awake is sacred in a way, like you are experiencing time that no one else is a part of.  In these wee hours time opens up and slows down.  Thinking takes on a new meaning and my hand craves a brush, pen, marker or whatever will facilitate meditation on paper. {In these late […]
