Wedding Crafternoon

modern calligraphy for wedding signs and invitations

Our wedding is only two months and two weeks away, so I had the girls over on Sunday and they helped out with some wedding crafts.

I signed up to two different Skillshare classes on modern calligraphy and am trying to learn as quick as I can so I can hand address all of the wedding invitations, and make some signs and other things for the ceremony. It's harder than I thought it would be, but I think I'm slowly getting better.

Have you ever tried your hand at calligraphy?

The next project was to make a welcome wreath for the front gate of the wedding venue. I haven't quite finished it yet, but what do you think so far? I'm still painting the wooden welcome sign, which will be hung in the middle.

Long Weekend

summer fashion illustration in watercolor gouache and ink by Jessica Mack aka BrownPaperBunny

Being Australian, I'm not used to celebrating the 4th of July, but that's not going to stop me going all out this year and experiencing everything it has to offer!

I'm planning to decorate the house in red, white, and blue, watch the morning parade in town, then head up the canyon for a picnic lunch by the river with friends, then over to family's house for a BBQ, then back downtown to watch the fireworks and wave sparklers around!

How do you celebrate the 4th of July, and what are you most looking forward to this summer?

Watercolor, gouache and ink fashion illustration inspired by Connie Cao and featuring NineWest Goldfish Platform Sandals and Triangl Underwear. Also shown, Firmoo Wayfarer teal and tortoise shell glasses and OtterBox Symmetry case in Eden design.

Sketching Maggie Sottero in watercolor

By now you've probably picked up on the fact that I'm planning a wedding with my beau, and one of my favorite wedding dress designers is Maggie Sottero. It seems that every dress I click on, or see in a magazine turns out to be hers.

What do you think of these two designs, and would you (or did you) wear a colored wedding dress on your big day?
