For our  Painterly Prose calligraphy feature this morning, we have the talented Elizabeth Hardin again! This quote from Matisse hardly needs any further explanation, only some big blooms to go with it!

Lots of texture here in these beautifully hand painted garden rose and monogram wedding invitations! All the rustic elegance of a rose garden with a little bit of lace to add a vintage feel. Hand painted petals pop off the invite. The shape of the invite is a fun and elegant change from our more usual layouts, and right away stand out to recipients that something unique is inside. With a palette of soft pinks, sages, and ivory, these elegant garden invitations are perfect for a spring or summer event!

Another lovely, fun example from Jennifer Mauricio! Such a sweet quote by Audrey Hepburn, perfect for bright watercolor florals and patterns. We’ve had such dreary weather here, and these colors sure help to brighten things up.

Lively, flowing, artful, carefree… all these words fit Elizabeth’s calligraphic style and make her work so fun to feature here! To match its vivacity, we’ve picked some light botanical elements and a watercolor wash with splashes of bright color. Happy and lighthearted, perfect for your Friday!

These stunning patterned watercolor floral wedding invitations in shades of pale peach, delicate green, and gold were on our painting table recently. Everything here is focused on the texture, thick creamy paint, shimmery gold, and torn edges. The defined brushstrokes perfectly compliment a subtle watercolor floral pattern. All with soft, airy colors and feathery botanical elements that give it a vintage, garden-inspired feel. Romantic and sweet!
