Emmys Fashion Illustrations

Emmys red carpet gowns in watercolor fashion illustration by Jessica Mack aka BrownPaperBunny

The Emmys were on tonight, and there were some pretty amazing gowns on the red carpet! I couldn't help myself, some of them just begged to be painted.

A few of my favorites were Julia Roberts in her navy Elie Saab Couture dress, Cat Deeley in a gorgeous ombre wrap dress (I'm not sure who designed it), and Amy Poehler in a glittery, 20's inspired silver Theia dress.

Here's a little time-lapse video of me painting them.

And here's the finished watercolor sketch.

Embossed Love Notes

Wedding love notes for guests to write gold embossing

We are getting married next month and I wanted to have something from our guests that we wouldn't look at until our one year anniversary, so I hand-painted this little glass container and embossed some little 'love notes' for guests to write in.

I'm hoping they will fill them with wisdom, tips for a happy marriage, and generally little messages that will be fun for us to read in a year's time.

For the glass container I used Martha Steward glass paint in matte and glitter. I dabbed on the pink heart using a little sponge and used a small stick-on stencil for the gold squiggles on either side.

On the love notes I wrote 'love' and drew hearts using a Martha Stewart glue pen, then sprinkled on embossing powder and finished them off with a heat gun to melt and raise the embossing powder.

I'd love to hear about any DIY wedding projects you've done! And check out the short video of me making the love notes.

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.
