Handmade custom invitations & stationery
by Kristy Rice

Last week was peppered with the painting of two very floral bouquets.  Both of our couples adored a blushy-pink color palette and a mix of classic blooms like Ranunculus, Peach Amaryllis and Garden Roses.  First up was Kaitlin’s bouquet…with the lovely Pieris added to the mix. The original was quite vibrant so when it came time for Kaitlin’s invitation sample I toned down the palette a bit with a more muted over-painting in shades of peach, blush and sage greens…  My Trellis Pattern with Envelopments was added to give a subtle and sophisticated shimmer and texture to the layering.

If you missed yesterday’s post, head over here and get caught up!  Today I’m sharing what one blog reader called “Momental Land”.  Trellis pattern by Envelopments inspired an entire scene filled with custom upholstery, a romantic makeup vanity and custom chandeliers.  The Trellis pattern has the unique ability to transcend paper and inspire well beyond correspondence. To show Trellis’ true design impact and versatility,  I envision it in a lifestyle space where walls are covered, chairs are upholstered and pillows are stuffed.  Sullivan Owen crafted these lofty arrangements inspired by the open weave of Trellis.  Poppies, jasmine, sweet pea, branches […]

You may have seen our feature on Green Wedding Shoes last week?  Well let me tell you a story… Dresses by The Dessy Group There is nothing I enjoy painting more than florals.  For years I tried to hide that fact and make nice with every design trend that passed my nose.  Being versatile keeps things interesting, so I do love a good landscape painting session or sitting down with the pencil to craft a new pattern, BUT my first love will always be floral. When Envelopments approached me about collaborating on a watercolor pattern featuring the floral designs I […]
