Hot Pink Wedding Stationery, Wishing Tree Tags, Wedding Post Box, Table Numbers, Seating Plan and Place Cards

Hot Pink, Wedding Stationery 
and Accessories for 
Karen and Richard


Very often there are 2 parts to every wedding order.
The first part is the Daytime and Evening Invitations,
Save the Date Cards and RSVP.

Once the numbers have been gathered in, it's easier to order the right amount of 'On the Day Items.

Here we have 80 hot pink 
wedding wishing tree butterfly tags


And of course the wishing tree sign

Hot Pink foiled table numbers
again with butterflies


8 Butterfly Menus.... 1 for each table

And a beautiful Hot Pink 
Butterfly themed Wedding Post Box


And a close up of the front


The punched out butterflies all had a little diamante,
adding that extra glitz and sparkle.

There's still the Seating Plan and place cards to make,
once the final confirmations of names have been received
and the list checked for any spelling errors.

I loved making up this order
as there was no restrictions  on how I went about it.
The brief was:

Hot Pink,
Butterflies,
and NO
 there can't be too many of them,
and do it however you like!

Great stuff.... that means I can go to town 
and give it my all.... and I think it shows! 


And finally the following HOT PINK Wedding Seating Plan
and Butterfly Place cards, complete the Wedding Stationery order of Karen and Richard.

The seating plan consists of 9 tables.
The top table is at the centre top
for visual purposes.....

And here's the detail of the Bride and Grooms
names as the header. All foiled in beautiful Hot Pin and decorated with butterflies.

Karen gave me free reign, with her parting shot being... "Oh do what you want.... you're the expert".  I took that to mean,
I could go crazy with diamante and butterflies.....so I did!


I printed hot pink butterflies n the place cards
to match all the other stationery here and then mixed 
a wonderful fuchsia pink for the lettering of 80 place cards.


And the whole thing looks fab! I've been told I can have a picture of the table when it is set up. It's always nice to see the finished look when it's put in situ with the table centre pieces and decorations, but sadly we are not very often there at the wedding to actually take photos.

A Journey Of a Thousand Miles - Commission

A journey of a thousand miles,
starts with a single step!

Commission


I was asked to produce something
for a client to give to a friend who is emigrating.
Although Australia is far more than a 1000 miles,
it's the start of a big thing!

I tried to do this a number of ways.... but it just wasn't working!
Once I let the piece flow and dictate itself,
the lettering and layout formed organically and took on a life of it's own. That's why it's really hard to work to commission and why artists so often steer clear of them and prefer to sell what they make, rather than be given a brief.


The background is pastel chalk, a technique that is not technically difficult and gives a great effect. 


The lettering is made using Gouache 
and the chalk acts as a tooth on the paper,
so letters are sharp and crisp....


I used a stencil of a spiral that I cut out some time ago
to represent travel, movement and journeys...

And it's hard to see on these pictures (which are far brighter in real life) but I've added silver squares too, to catch the eye as the viewer walks by. These represent things hidden to be revealed. 

The client will have the choice of 2, Landscape or Portrait format.... the other will be sold on my website or in my shop.
