Real Weddings | Work in progress

MbM_AF-Wedding-Stationery-05A quick little behind-the-scenes peek on some recent work I had done for a gorgeous couple getting married next summer. With Turkish-Cypriut backgrounds, the couple were eager to bring in Mediterranean influences to their bespoke stationery design while keeping it contemporary and elegant on the whole. In essence, setting the scene for their summer wedding day itself.

The combination of fluid brush lettering and soft water-coloured illustrations were explored to create an organic sun-drenched feel. The designs for this phase of the stationery designs were centered around Mediterranean tiles and citrus hues in a subdued yet refreshing style, while exploring the subtle textures brought from the inks and paper used.

There’s a lot of work that goes behind bespoke, custom-designed wedding stationery but it is a lot of fun working on them particularly when you get to play around with different mediums. I most definitely enjoyed this one and cannot wait to get started on the next phase that is their main Invitation Suite which will be exploring more lettering and illustrations that involve olives and lemons!

So stay tuned for that in the new year :)

[DIY Christmas] Free printable gift tags – round two!

MbM_Gift-Tags_2014_headerOkay, so if you liked (or didn’t! like!) the last set of free printable gift tags, then perhaps-these watercolour-inspired designs will take your fancy? I’m still pretty hooked on the water-colour textures since my hand-lettered quote post last week, and eager to explore more with the medium.

Anyhoo, while I do that… go treat yourself to these bad boys, that’s if you’re still got heaps of christmas wrapping still to do! You know the drill; just click HERE to download the PDF file and off you go! My big tip with these is that if you can get hold of slightly textured card stock (that your printer will obviously be able to take!) then use that, as it gives that extra bit of dimension to the tags and will totally look the handmade part! Again, these will be great teamed up with plain gift wrap and ribbon for that soft, elegant and minimal look.

Happy gift wrapping and do let me know how you get on if you decide to use them. NINE more sleeeeeeep till Christmas folks. Gosh, I really need to pull my socks up and get all the cards, and gifts sorted! Eeeeep! Bye for now….! xxx
