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.
Next was David and Rachel’s bouquet with the addition of Ivory Wax Flower, Chocolate Cosmos, Blush Camelia, Peach Dahlia and deep red winter berries. It all began with the softest watercolor washes and pencil lines…
I’m in love with the Cosmos…ah and those Camelias!
Again I toned down the original painting’s vibrancy with creamy peach brushstrokes lending a vintage postcard feel to the whole look. Envelopments’ Pink Repousse pattern with it’s nubby texture just adds a luxe flair.
Thanks to Kaitlin and Rachel for inspiring two new paintings I am proud to add to our collection! XO
