The studio is bustling with ideas and projects this time of year.  We love the variety of mid-summer, everything from blooms and feathers to venue sketches and snowflakes are on the painting table!  I pulled a few favorites from the last week to share.  First up is Alyssa’s cheerful and elegant day-of accessories.  Custom wedding programs, wedding seating cards and handmade wedding table number cards all coordinated in shades of pink, gold and blush!

Today I am wrapping up a week of wedding invitation inspiration for the beachcomber in all of us. First up was Erin’s Adirondack chair scene and next I shared two of my personal favorites!

The Momental Girls painted for hours to create this lavish layered look. Sea Turtle cutout style artwork was finished with a watercolor texture backdrop. Sweet little bubbles add a touch of whimsy!  Paper selection was key in […]

I’ve dedicated this week to featuring every detail from our Dali project recently seen on Style Me Pretty.  If you missed the first post, have a look here. Desiree and Sara from Desiree Spinner Events jumped on board this project very early on and took the lead in producing a delectable sweets table.  My sketch below was only the beginning. Desiree and Sara envisioned a dessert table to capture a moment of indulgence rather than a pristine, perfectly set scene… The Madeline Gold linen from LaTavola acted as a rich backdrop.  Spun sugar balls, thick buttercream frosted cakes, white chocolate […]
