Okay, please forgive me as I neglect again to post the usual Friday Foonotes post. Last week I just gave it up all together and just didn't post one. But I didn't want to leave you all hanging again! So here's a peek at my current projects, some are still in progress! 1. Splish Splash Birthday Invitation Oh how I loooooove how this invitation came out for my friend's little baby girl. It's literally my absolute favorite design I think I've ever done. Is that saying too much? I don't know
Sunshine and Lemonade, Birthday Party Invitation and Party Photos
If I haven't said it a thousand times already, Jess and I make a great team! So when she came to me with the idea of a vintage summer birthday party for her son's second birthday, back in probably November haha, I had many months to get excited to get started on the project. This time, she left it fully in my hands on what to do. She just gave me a photo of a lemonade stand that she wanted to make and then said go. I thought about it for a month or two—seriously, she always gives me plenty of time—and came up with using watercolor as a way of coloring in the invitation. And since her colors started as being yellow, gray and white, I thought a simple line art illustration would work perfectly. Just to show Jess the layout I wanted to go with, I sketched out a rough idea. Once she saw it, she suggested adding the pendant banners. Love! And then we also decided to add the blue and green to add some more color and make it more kid like. It was for a 2 year old's birthday party after all. I then traced the photo
