[private commission] A date to remember – 1

BLOG_STRIP_wedding-commissioned_WEB-1

This was a commissioned piece for a friend who was looking for a bespoke wedding gift and I was asked to create a wall art bearing the wedding date of the bride and groom. I had a few ideas in mind where I wanted the overall look to feel regal and decadent yet keeping it elegant and minimalist at the same time. After a few test runs, I finally decided on using similar techniques used on the pieces I made for the ‘White on White‘ wedding styled shoot in summer, where the template (fonts and layout) was designed and hand cut to create a stencil. The numerals were then hand-stamped using a rich brushed metallic gold pigment ink on heavyweight cotton paper after which the lettering was handwritten in gold ink to finish it all off. I chose to frame the print in a simple white box frame where it was mounted 5mm off the backing card to create a lovely shadow gap which adds that extra bit of ‘oomph’ I think! ;) I’m pleased with how it’s turned – I think I may have to make one for ourselves to keep! :P Anyway, lets hope the recipient is delighted with it too! And luckily for me, I have another couple of more wedding gift projects coming up! Just the creative adrenaline I need so do stay tuned!! Oh and if you know anyone looking for something a little ‘bespoke’….let me know! :D xx BLOG_STRIP_wedding-commissioned_WEB-2
