This week’s favorites from the painting table are a varied bunch.  Each project holds so much sentimentality for its couple and family and we are honored to have brought these stories to life!  First up is Leigh’s Art Deco inspired wedding invitation.  A few photos of family heirlooms from Leigh are all we needed to begin.  I sketched a favorite brooch for it’s detailed design and round shape which translated effortlessly into this classic tiled pattern.  Hand painted dots and splashes of gold and gunmetal inks added over the top texture against the shimmer papers she chose.

Sometimes a simple act can lead to big things.  So I attribute my new watercolor palette to a lot of the gorgeousness going on at the studio as of late.  Call me crazy but nothing inspires me more that a white sheet of Arches and a palette full of fresh, new watercolor.  Soak it up. First project off the new palette is hush hush so all I can say is I’ve been lost in lovely pink blooms for the past 2 weeks! We’re trying out new textures and techniques lately  so how appropriate that our first swatches of Momental fabric […]

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! Samantha’s lush and whimsical blooms are perfectly balanced in shades of blue, lavender and periwinkle.  We adore the combination of poppies and hydrangeas with Envelopments iconic […]

We are knee deep in projects again at the studio!  Wading through the details of some stunning client projects, new invitation collections, photoshoots and an upcoming trek to Utah is my idea of living! Our newest collections take inspiration from some well known art movements, the more organic side of Alice in Wonderland and my love for collecting vintage pieces. Check out a sneak peek: What goes hand-in-hand with creating new collections?  Why, photographing them of course!!  Next Monday, myself and two Momental girls will head here to have all new images shot!!  Of course each image will be mindfully […]

This week in the studio purple seems to be the theme!  Ashley’s stunning hydrangea and peony invitations feature a meticulous painting technique that kept our newest Momental Girl Steph busy for days.  A wet in wet technique featuring layers of sheer water color yielded a look that is rich with texture.  Five shade s of sheer purple inks and 2 opaque were washed into my sketchy hydrangea illustration. Denise worked with us for several months to perfect her very unique version of our Versailles Swirl Design.  Purple swirls, ostrich feather, painted dots and Parisian inspired flourishes all combined with her […]
