Handmade custom invitations & stationery

Love this edgy little detail…Tara brought in an artist to embellish her tattoo day […]

Today I have a bright and colorful wedding invitation to share for Gayaneh and Erik’s wedding in July.  She wanted bold florals but with a distinctly unique twist.  We chose the aloe bloom in fantasy shades of fuchsia and orange.  Painted in detail with sheer shimmer accents the blooms were full of sheen and life! Gayaneh also asked me to create a creative Armenian monogram representing their first initials.  How fun!  A sweet Portable Pocket from Envelopments was the finishing detail  all tied up with natural raffia. Thanks so much Gayaneh for the opportunity to collaborate on this project! So […]
